Please note that we do not guarantee a delivery date with UPS Ground delivery.  The delivery dates quoted by us are APPROXIMATE and provided to us by UPS.

Any order for UPS shipping placed after 4pm EST will be shipped on the next day.

UPS does not ship orders to PO Boxes. Please be sure to provide a full address, including as much detail (eg, Apartment #, Suite, etc) as possible.  

Because UPS Ground does not deliver on weekends, end of week orders that require shipment via UPS may ship on Monday to avoid your package sitting in a UPS warehouse over the weekend.

Saturday UPS deliveries are available for an extra charge. Please call the store.

Inaccurate, incomplete or invalid shipping addresses may delay order fulfillment.

Shipping in Hot Weather or to Warm Weather Climates

Although we try to take the necessary precautions when shipping in hot weather or to warm weather climates, we cannot be responsible for melting.

For warm destinations, we ship only Mon-Wed during the warmer months, in order that packages don’t sit in shipping warehouses over the weekend. Overnight orders can ship on Thursday also.

We will add for a charge cooling materials when shipping to warm destinations.

During warmer months (above 74 degrees) if your  order is in transit longer USPS ground transit, then we’ll get in touch with you to upgrade your shipping option to make sure your order gets to its destination in perfect condition.

  • If your chocolate sits in a metal mailbox/parcel box or in direct sunlight even for a short time, it will likely begin to melt. Thus, please make sure someone is home for delivery or perhaps use a work address.
  • Shipping to hot weather states may require Next Day Delivery.
  • During the Summer months (June-September), all states will be considered as hot weather states and will require ‘warm weather shipping’; which may require an additional charge.
  • Please contact the store if you have any questions regarding shipping.
