  • Product Care
    • Our chocolates are handcrafted in small batches from all-natural and, when possible, local and organic ingredients.

      For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your chocolates within 10 days.

      Store your chocolates in a cool, dry place between 64-68°F (14-16°C) and out of direct sunlight.

      To avoid blooming, please do not place your chocolates in the refrigerator.

      While we generally advise against refrigerating chocolates, there may be some instances like heat and humidity where refrigeration is the only way to maintain the integrity of your chocolates.  If you do need to store your confections in the refrigerator, we recommend protecting them by placing the box inside two airtight plastic bags, air removed and fully sealed.  Stored in this way, we recommend enjoying refrigerated confections within 1 month.  When enjoying refrigerated chocolates, we suggest keeping the box inside the two sealed plastic bags until the entire package comes to room temperature; this process will take approximately two hours.
