Deliciously Crafted Chocolates  •  Packed with Care


We take crafting delicious, gourmet chocolates seriously. That's why every order is packed with great care. Our shipping system monitors the temperature where your package is being delivered to ensure your chocolates arrive in perfect condition. We offer a variety of shipping options including standard, 2-day and overnight services. Typically, your order ships within 1-3 business days from when your order was received.

 

Most orders placed before 12pm (noon) EST will ship the same day*.   Orders placed after 12pm (noon) EST will ship out the next business day.


Warm Weather Destinations

We take extra precautions when shipping chocolates to warm locations.  We monitor the weather and offer only expedited shipping services to ALL warm-weather destinations. We want to be sure your chocolates arrive in perfect condition. When the weather gets too warm, our shipping department takes extra care to make sure each chocolate arrives to your doorstep in perfect condition: cool and intact (no one likes melted chocolate). This means we may require expedited shipping or take extra packing precautions, which may increase shipping prices temporarily. You will be notified during checkout of shipping speeds and prices available.


Warm weather shipping does not apply to CT, DE, MA, ME, PA, MD, NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT, or WV.
