Because chocolate is vulnerable to heat, we ship all of our products in insulated containers that help protect them from heat damage. However, the shipping method choice you make at the time of purchase is also very important. You must take into account your local weather, the weather at your shipments destination and the weather in between. We will try to assist in your shipping method choice but, due to order volume we might not be able to check every order. Please know we do not guarantee any shipment that takes longer than two days to reach its destination or if it has been subject to heat above 90 degrees Fahrenheit for more than 6 hours during transit. Make sure the recipient will be able to provide a protected environment once the package is delivered by UPS. Your actual shipping charges may vary due to package size.
