Warm Weather Shipping

Many of our candies can take the heat just fine! In fact, Pralines are built for our steamy New Orleans weather, as are our brittles, nuts, and taffy. Candies made with chocolate (except for chocolate pralines and fudge) will melt in transit once the outdoor temperature rises above 80.

During our warmer months May through October, we offer special warm weather packaging to protect our chocolates from melting during shipping. Your candy will be packaged with CooLiner Foil Bubble and a cold gel-pack that will stay cold for up to 48 hours.

We highly recommend selecting FedEx Overnight or FedEx 2-Day Express service for shipments outside of FedEx transit zones beyond 2 days.  (see FedEx zone chart).

(If you choose to ship chocolates without our shipping service recommendation, we must ask you to take responsibility for the condition of the chocolate upon its arrival. Chocolate damaged due to heat exposure will not be replaced.)
