Caramel is shipped year-round, however the caramel may melt during transit if ordering during warmer temperatures. If it melts during shipping, it CAN be remelted. Purchasing cold packs and expediting the order may reduce the chance of heat damage. UPS does not deliver on weekends, so we do recommend shipping orders that can be affected by heat on Mondays or towards the beginning of the week.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.
