We take every precaution to ensure product stability during shipping. With each order we check the weather and adjust accordingly. Warmer climates will have their packages shipped with cool packs, cold wrapping and thermal insulating so you never have to worry about the condition of your chocolates. All chocolates are ice packed for shipping during late spring to early fall to prevent melting or product compromise.
