How do I best care for my chocolates?
To maintain the fine flavor and freshness of your chocolates, please keep them in a cool environment (60-70 degrees F.) and the freshness will last for up to one month. If you would like to keep the product longer and your box of chocolates has been opened, put the box in a sealed plastic bag, and place it in the refrigerator. It can be stored in this fashion for up to 6 months. Upon removing from the refrigerator, please allow the chocolates to adjust to room temperature overnight before removing the box from the plastic bag. To freeze the product, proceed in the same way as refrigerating, but place the box in two sealed plastic bags, and allow the product to adjust for 24 hours before unwrapping in the refrigerator. This will avoid the chocolates from sweating while unthawing. The product can be frozen for 9 to 10 months in this fashion without losing the fine texture and flavor.

Why are shipping costs so high during different parts of the year?

During summer months we must pack your order in ice to prevent the chocolate from melting. Additionally, our shipping costs take into account handling, insurance and rising costs from the US Postal Service.
