We generally ship your order within 2-3 business days of receipt. With standard shipping, most orders arrive within seven business days. With expedited shipping, most orders arrive within three business days. Please note that all orders received on Friday, during the Summer, will NOT be shipped until the following Monday to avoid a possible weekend layover in a hot, steamy UPS warehouse. More details on our seasonal shipping policies can be found below.
Depending on the time of year, chocolate may be shipped via UPS Ground, 3 day, 2 day, or Standard Overnight Shipping.
Please see details below:
- Winter (November through April):
- All States: Ground, 3 day and 2 day shipping methods are generally available as well as Overnight shipping. However, we reserve the right to hold a shipment, if we think climates in the shipment destination will melt the chocolate. Please be sure your billing information is correct, should we need to contact you.
- Spring/Summer/Fall (May through October):
- East of the Mississippi, Texas, LA and FLA: Due to the warmer weather during this time of year, Overnight shipping is recommended.
