Can I still Call in, fax, or e-mail my order?
Yes, you can. If you are more comfortable using your previous method of ordering, please do.
Do I need to create an account?
It is not necessary but if you do you will be able to do more with our web site. You can track orders, save carts, keep an address book, and create wish lists. The address book is very helpful if you send to the same persons from year to year so you do not have to enter the information over and over again. If you add names to your address book you can then just select them under the Send To: option.

How do I send a gift to others?
If you are sending to just one person that is not yourself, follow the steps above, placing their information in the ship to area.
How do I send to multiple people?
Create an account if you don't already have one. Otherwise log into your account. Having an account allows you to add addresses to your address book. Add addresses you would ship to so you can use them on current and future orders.
Prior to adding products to your cart you need to be sure to select any product options including an optional gift message and the tell us where to ship by selecting the name from your address book in the Send To: box.
You can send to someone else without adding to your address book first by selecting "other, add new name" int the Send To: box. Then type in a name in the Add Name box. It will ask you for the address during the checkout. Unfortunately that name and address will not get added to your address book for future use at this time.

What is Warm Weather Shipping?
Our method of warm weather shipping is designed to get our temperature sensitive product safely to its destination. Your candy is packed in a larger box than normal to provide more room for insulation. We also include frozen gel packs to keep the temperature below the melting point of the product. Please allow the candy to come to room temperature before removing the plastic wrap to avoid condensation.
When should I select Warm Weather vs Cool Weather Shipping?
We recommend using Warm Weather Shipping when the daytime highs in the origination and destination are above 75 degrees.
How long will my candy keep?
For ideal freshness, our candies will keep 3-6 weeks from the time you receive them, however, they rarely last that long
How should I store my candy after receiving my order?
We recommend keeping our candies away from four things: Heat, Humidity, Strong odors, and Pets.
Heat - We recommend storing candy between 60 and 70 degrees F.
Humidity - Keep candy away from humidity. Refrigerators are a HIGH humidity environment
Strong odors - Chocolate absorbs odors easily. Keep it away from flowers, perfumes, and other foods.
Pets - Animals, especially dogs, are very good at finding our product.
If you insist on refrigerating or freezing your candy, we recommend placing it in a plastic bag with as much air removed as possible. When removing, allow it to completely come to room temperature before opening to minimize condensation.
