Shipping Policy

are your products delivered?

We usually ship via UPS or FedEx at an additional charge.

are shipments for chocolate items sent during the Summer?

Our chocolates are of the finest quality and we want to assure you get to enjoy them.

While we make every effort to assure our product arrives to you in the best condition, our products are heat sensitive and therefore, based on your shipping location, you may not see an option to ship via Ground Shipping or 2 Day Shipping. We recommend selecting the quickest shipping method available.

During the warmer months, shipments are insulated and include ice packs at an
additional charge of $7 per case. Often, cases are combined so fewer insulation
charges are incurred.

long does the insulation last?

Typically it holds for about 48 hours. For this reason, it is
often necessary to expedite such shipments when going to destinations with a 3
or more day UPS ground delivery time from our Lakewood, NJ facility. States
like FL, CA & TX are among those states requiring expedited shipping during
warm months at an additional cost.

The States of NY, NJ, PA, CT, MD, OH, MA are all within 2 day
UPS ground delivery and would not need additional expedited shipping during the
summer, though insulation charges still apply. EXCEPTIONS are made only during
extreme heat when even such shipments are sent next day. However, often such
shipments are held back if a break in the heat is expected within the next few

what temperatures do shipments begin requiring insulation?

Generally if the high/low forecast range is 75 & 63 Fahrenheit or higher we
insulate (and expedite if necessary).

States generally have longer warm weather seasons and are thus more affected by
higher freight charges?


I set up a direct truck to deliver my order at a reduced cost?

Yes, direct trucks are generally set up by us when the order
qualifies. Qualifications are based on order size and weight and vary by carrier.
Truck carriers vary by state. Contact your rep for additional details.
