Shipping Procedures and Policies
Our goal is to deliver your order to you in the way that best meets your needs. Therefore we offer several options, from Smart Post to Overnight shipping via Federal Express services.
We currently ship only within the United States.
We can deliver to P.O. Boxes; however, you must select FedEx Smart Post as your shipping method. Any orders that we receive with a Ship-To address of a P.O. Box will be shipped via FedEx Smart Post, regardless of the shipping method chosen at the time of order placement. Please call us toll free at 1-888-645-3453, if you wish to ship to a Military APO or FPO address.

Warm Weather Shipping Policy (May through September)
- Due to warm temperatures, we do not ship orders containing chocolate items on Fridays during May through September. Therefore, the delivery times could be longer during warm weather periods than noted above.
- Some of our candy selections (mostly chocolate items) may require special packaging and/or cooling packs to help assure quality is maintained during warm weather periods, and expedited shipping may be required. Any change in shipping due to this requirement will be communicated during that time. Complete details regarding shipping requirements can be found in the product description area.
All items in your order will be shipped by whichever method you selected. We will pack all merchandise and candy together whenever possible, and the shipping option selected based on the candy shipping policy will be used for the entire order. There may be situations in which an order must be shipped in more than one package, especially if it includes oversized items or the total weight is too much for one box.
