Because we only use natural ingredients, and no chemical preservatives, they do have a shorter shelf life than supermarket chocolates. And because your box will most probably contain different chocolates that have been produced at different times with different ingredients, that too factors into how long your chocolates will last.
Your box will have a date stamped on the bottom. That is the date when at least one of the chocolates inside will reach its Best Before date. As a rule, chocolates containing chocolate and dairy ganaches inside have a shorter shelf life, and those without dairy will last longer.
Treat them well, keep them in a cool place - not the fridge.
Chocolates don't like heat and aren't that keen on cold either. The ideal temperature is 15-18° C with low humidity. The fridge has too much moisture so it will destroy the outer coating. We recommend a cool, dark place. A secret place where no-one will find them ;)
Shipping costs $7 by post, $9 for courier and $10 for Rural Delivery post.
If you do live rurally please ensure you select and pay for Rural Delivery, as if it doesn’t have the RD ticket on the parcel, NZ Post will not deliver it and we won’t be held responsible for delivery to an incomplete address.
It depends on where you are and what delivery service you choose. Orders before noon are processed that same day. Courier is generally overnight, unless you order on a Friday - then it will generally get there on Monday. Post takes 2-3 business days to arrive.
