Frequently Asked Questions
SHIPPING & HANDLING
How do you ship chocolate and candy during warm months?
During warm months and when sending to warmer climates, we pack our candy carefully with insulation and ice packs to keep the product as fresh as possible. If your order includes a more heat sensitive item (like chocolate), we recommend choosing 2-day or overnight shipping to shorten the amount of time the package is left outside.
What do I do if my product arrives melted?
If your product(s) arrives melted, we ask you to send a picture of the melted product to customer service at email@example.com within 24 hours of receiving your package. We’ll assist you in receiving a replacement or a refund.
Are there certain days you do not ship during warmer months?
During the months of May through September, ground orders will only ship Monday through Wednesday, and 2-day & overnight orders will ship Monday through Thursday. No orders will ship on Fridays.
Do orders with multiple products always ship together?
Most orders with multiple products will ship together, but we do have several exceptions! Personalized orders and hand dipped assortments must ship separately due to lead time, preservation of the product, and/or shipping restrictions.
How will I know when my order ships?
We’ll send you an email when your order has been processed & has a tracking number.

What is Prop65?
Proposition 65, officially the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, is a law that requires warnings be provided to California consumers when they might be exposed to chemicals identified by California as causing cancer or reproductive toxicity. The warnings are intended to help California consumers make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals from the products they use. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program and publishes the listed chemicals, which includes more than 850 chemicals. In August 2016, OEHHA adopted new regulations, effective on August 30, 2018, which change the information required in Proposition 65 warnings. For more information, go to P65Warnings.ca.gov.
