It’s getting to be that time of year again, I’m afraid.
While we’re all overjoyed to be playing in the dirt, smelling spring’s blossoms and loving the bike rides to ice cream stands after dinner, warmer temperatures and singing robins mark the beginning of a summer shipping schedule at Lake Champlain Chocolates. (In other words: order your chocolates now!)
Here’s the skinny. From May 10th until June 1st we require that all chocolate shipped outside of New England be shipped via 2-Day Air. From June 1st until September 30th, we require all chocolate outside of New England to be sent overnight.
Why such strict regulations, you ask? We would hate for you to pay for an adorable Chocolate Frog, gourmet chocolate truffles or some lovely Mother’s Day Chocolates just to have them melt in transit. Shortening transit times allows your chocolate to arrive safe and sound (and solid) to be enjoyed in the same high quality condition it leaves our factory in.
So, in a manner of speaking, this is last call and my recommendation is to stock up now. I’d hate for a Caramel Five Star Bar craving to go unchecked.
If you do happen to order after May 10th and realize that shipping charges are a little pricier than you were expecting, remember that all of our chocolates are made by seasoned chocolatiers and are carefully packed with tissue paper, ice/gel packs and a personalized card. We couldn’t bear to send you anything that’s less than perfect.
