WARM WEATHER SHIPPING
Shipping chocolate in hot weather can be tricky. We take extra precautions when the temperature rises above 72 degrees (the temperature chocolate starts to melt) to make sure our chocolate gets to you in the best possible condition.
- Ground Shipping may not be an available shipping option: Our team diligently tracks weather patterns across the U.S. If the route to your location crosses a warm area, we remove Ground as a shipping option to ensure your chocolate arrives in the best possible condition.
- Ship to a Business Address: We ship with ice packs and insulated bags to help make sure your chocolate arrives just the way it should. However, even with ice packs, your chocolate may melt if left out in the hot sun. We highly recommend shipping to a business address instead of residential so that your chocolate can be brought inside quickly. We are not responsible for melted chocolate if the package has been left outside.
- We may need to upgrade your shipping: Sometimes, your shipping may need to be upgraded to expedited or overnight shipping due to hot weather. In these cases, we will always call and confirm if this is ok with you. Increased shipping charges may apply.
- Saturday delivery is only available via USPS.
