is about 100 F (36 C), although softening occurs
at about around 70 F (26 C). Given chocolate's reaction to warmth
and heat, special care must be taken when shipping chocolate to warmer climates. Warm weather shipping is required above 75 F. Heat-sensitive items are identified with a Warm Weather Shipping Message
in red on the product page. If your order includes one of these items, or if you have any concerns about the perishable nature of your order, you are required to purchase this Warm Weather Shipping Kit, and follow the instructions below.
If we deem it necessary to include the kit, we reserve the right to charge your card for additional cost of the kit ($7.50).
1. Choose an expedited shipping method (2 Day, or Next Day Air) at checkout. Please take into consideration the
temperature of your shipping destination and the fact that the Warm Weather Shipping Kit is most
effective the first 24 hours. Consult the UPS Shipping Map
for information on transit times.
2. Ship your order to an air-conditioned office or ensure that the recipient is home when your
package is delivered so it doesn't sit outside in the heat any longer
