Please be aware that during summer months it may become too warm to ship our chocolates. To ensure your chocolates arrive in a desirable condition for you to enjoy, we will keep your order safe and dispatch as soon as it is cool enough to do so.
We will endeavour to contact you to let you know if your delivery is likely to be delayed due to weather, however we cannot always guarantee your chocolates will arrive in a desirable condition. If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch on 01904 656 731 or email:
