Shipping FAQs

When will my order be shipped?

Most orders ship within 48 hours of us receiving them, if the order is received by 12:30 EST. Orders after that time are considered the next day. If the order will be much later than that, we will contact you. During the winter months, we ship Monday-Friday. During the summer months, we tend to not ship orders on Thursdays and Fridays if they contain products that may melt.

When will my order arrive?

  • USPS Priority Mail – 2-4 Days, most places in the U.S.

Please note:

  1. These travel days do not include our processing time (24-48 hours)
  2. The number of days listed is Business Days (not including Nights/Weekends)

Why is shipping so expensive? What about Free Shipping

We do not offer free shipping because we would rather charge you a fair price for your candy and shipping than marking up candy so high that it covers the cost of shipping.

What about orders outside of the United States?

We do not ship outside of the United States

Some items say that they make break in shipping and you’re not responsible. What’s up with that?

We pack our orders very carefully, but there are some items that may experience breakage along the way. However, you should only expect a small amount of breakage. If a significant portion of your order arrives broken, please contact us immediately.

What if my order arrives and something is wrong?

Our shipping department packs each order with great care, but occasionally there are problems. If your order arrives with missing, broken or incorrect product, please contact USPS.

I need my candy for a special event, how far in advance should I order it?

We recommend that you order as early as possible to avoid any out of stock or shipping issues. Most items that we carry have a shelf life of at least six months and will do fine if left in a controlled (air conditioned) environment.
