What is the shelf-life of my fudge and how to store it?
The maximum shelf-life of our fudge on a room temperature is two months. It is best kept in an air-tight wrapping, such as saran wrap. Left on an open air, it will stay fresh for about a week or two and dry out afterwards. Even then, though, it will have only the edges hardened and still will be fresh inside. If kept in the freezer, the appearance and quality will be affected only marginally, but the taste could be preserved that way for over a year.
What is the shelf-life for chocolates?
Our other chocolates are a bit more resistant than the fudge and will stay fresh for longer periods of time than the fudge. However, if there is nuts, Oreos or other ingredients specific to the flavor you order, they might go bad or stale faster than the chocolate itself. It’s always best to keep the candy in an airtight wrapping if it won’t be consumed within a week.
Should I refrigerate my candy?
No. Refrigeration will dehydrate both the fudge and other chocolates. It will also cause rapid temperature changes that will affect its appearance and quality. Always keep the chocolate in a cool and dry place. Keep the fudge air-tight wrapped.
I’m placing my order in the summertime. Will it melt?
Our standard shipping option is through USPS, making the delivery within 2-3 days. The fudge itself won’t melt in hot weather because we adjust the cooking temperature according to the season, to compensate for the hot weather. The worst that could happen is that it will get a bit soft, but will come back to the regular consistency once back at the room temperature.
Chocolates, however, are more prone to melting. We use Styrofoam packaging to insulate the chocolates within the box for the smaller orders and include an ice-pack in the larger ones. Even so, we recommend choosing our USPS Priority Mail Express 1-day shipping at the checkout to prevent the melting. Please, have someone bring the chocolates inside soon upon delivery.

How soon will my order be shipped?
Our processing time is 1-2 business days before we ship your order. Occasionally, we may need another couple of days to make a fudge or candy flavor that we are temporarily out of.
An item is “Out of Stock.” When will it be back?
During peak season we make our fudge daily, and off-season a couple times a week which is also true for most of our chocolate treats. In almost every case, we’ll have the “Out of Stock” items back in stock within a week, seasonal products being the exception.
Do you use nuts in your candy?
We have a wide selection of nut-free treats but please keep in mind that all of our fudge, chocolate and candy are made in a facility that processes nuts and nut byproducts.
Are your chocolates gluten free?
At their core, our fudge and chocolate treats are gluten free, but they are handled in a facility that also processes treats that include pretzels, and/or cookies (e.g. Oreos) which do contain gluten. It’s best to assume that all of our chocolate, fudge and candy products may contain traces of gluten.
Do you have any dairy-free free chocolates?
No, we’re old school when it comes to our confections — all of our chocolates have milk in them.
