High outside temperatures
The quality of our chocolate is influenced by the outside temperature. That is why we always take good care of protecting our shipments e.g. by using isolating materials. On extra warm days we also use heat resistant packaging and/or cooling packs. There may be days however that it is simply too warm to ship our chocolate. If this is the case, we will notify you immediately of the delayed shipment. If the delayed delivery date would not suit you then you are always free to cancel your purchase without any cost and with full reimbursement of your payment.
Regardless the outside temperature, you obviously are always welcome in our shops to collect your orders.
