We ship U.P.S. ground unless otherwise requested or the heat/travel time requires us to ship a quicker rate. Most packages shipped to the East Coast via U.P.S. ground arrive in 1 to 2 days after processing. West Coast orders take 4 -5 days after processing. Please keep in mind the weather factor as far as shipping chocolate goes. When the expected temperature is over 75 degrees we must add cooler packs to your order which in turn adds $5 and also adds a pound to the shipping weight. Also, please consider shipping to an address or work place where someone will be there to receive the package, chocolates do not like to sit outside in the heat. Orders are shipped Monday thru Thursday so that they don't have the chance of sitting in shipping limbo over a weekend. We cannot be responsible for a package once it leaves our facility. Once your order is processed we will email you a tracking number so you can follow its shipping progress and prepare accordingly to receive it. If you have any other questions please call 610-461-4676. Thank You!!!!
