Why do your shipping costs seem so expensive? Why am I only being given a choice between Next Day and 2nd Day?
We want our chocolate to reach you and your gift recipients looking and tasting just as fresh as it does when it leaves our shop. Because of the time and temperature sensitive nature of most of our products, we have to use a reliable shipper who will guarantee on time delivery and unfortunately this results in a higher shipping cost.
Certain products like our hot chocolate mix, nibs, sauces and apparel can be shipped ground nationwide, but if your order contains any of our more delicate products (like bon bons, molded chocolate, products from our chocolate covered section), you may only be given the option of Next Day or 2nd Day shipping, depending on your shipping address.
Please note that our chocolates are made and shipped from Empire, MI so orders going to the west coast, east coast and deep south will be the most expensive. During late spring and summer we only offer Ground shipping to addresses in our 1 day delivery zone (Michigan addresses) and Next Day shipping to all other destinations to protect your chocolate from melting.
How do you keep the chocolate from melting?
We are diligent about checking destination temperatures and will pack your order in a styrofoam lined container with gel ice to keep your chocolates cool if your package will be passing through or be delivered to hot climate. We highly recommend you select the Next Day shipping option if the destination temperature is over 70 degrees.
