Efficient Shipping to Your Doorstep for Fresh Chocolate Delights.

A UPS map indicates the number of days to ship from our Creamery. Ground shipments to CT, MA, NH, Eastern New York, Maine, Rhode Island and VT will arrive within 1-2 days of leaving us. However, warm weather places will require expedited shipping, next day or 2nd day air via UPS.


1. Selecting a shipping date:

Because of the perishable nature of our fresh chocolates, we use UPS ground or 2 day air shipping methods. In warmer weather situations we ship in insulated boxes with ice packs. 

2. Days we ship:

We ship on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, so that your package does not spend the weekend at a holding facility. If you place your order on Friday, we shall ship your order Tuesday. Also, please note we do not ship on Saturdays or Sundays.

3. Busy Holiday Seasons:

Christmas/Hanukkah, Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentine's Day, and Mother's Day are a busy time for a chocolatier, so please allow more time for shipping. (Allowing more time for delivery gives you other delivery options, too - ship earlier and save on overnight delivery fees)

4. Make sure to double-check the address for proper verification:

Note, when shipping to a physical address, an accurate street address, suite/apartment number, company name (if applicable), and phone number is required to ensure proper delivery.

5. Warm Temperature Conditions: 

We are committed to delivering fresh delicious chocolates for you in great condition, and include ice-packs and insulated boxes (without charge) when shipping to warm climates.

However, we suggest you select an Express delivery option if the temperature at your destination is more than 70 degrees F. ,please make every effort to notify the recipient that a package will be arriving. We cannot be responsible for items left unattended or not sent express in warm weather.

6. Order Tracking:

As soon as your order is fulfilled and a shipping label is created, you will receive shipping and tracking details via email. You will then be able to track your package at anytime.
