Chocolate is shipped year-round, however, chocolate may melt in shipping if ordering during warmer temperatures. If real chocolate melts during transit it can be re-melted, however, the cocoa butter crystals may become unstable and the real chocolate will require re-tempering. We do recommend shipping orders that can be affected by heat on Mondays or towards the beginning of the week so the product is not sitting in a warehouse over the weekend. Purchasing cold packs may reduce the chance of the chocolate melting as well as expediting the order. Please be advised: Ice packs only have a significant benefit in the first 24-36 hours and only when shipping in moderate temperatures. ALL FOOD PRODUCTS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE EVEN IF AFFECTED BY HEAT.
