Chocolate Warm Weather Shipping
At homeandkitchenstore.com we make every effort possible to ensure that your chocolate and other food items arrive in the best possible condition. However, due to temperature variations across the country that are out of our control, we cannot guarantee the unmelted or melted status of chocolate products that are shipped during the warm months. We encourage expedited shipping options to help minimize the risk of melting issues. In most cases our chocolate is used for the purpose of confectionery creations and is melted down to use anyway and this is not a large issue. If you have any further questions regarding warm weather shipping, please feel free to contact us at 626-814-7234. You can speak with Matt or Janelle in the Web Department and we are happy to help you!
