During the warmer months (April through September), we pack the Candy Bear Bouquets with ice packs, and ship via USPS or FedEx (sorry no hand deliveries). During these warm months we do not ship on Friday or Saturday, to avoid the possibility of a package sitting in a hot warehouse on Sunday. Since all of our Candy Bear Bouquets are custom made, all orders are shipped in 1-2 business days, Monday through Thursday.
Recommended options if destination temperature above 80 degrees:
- Choose "All Non-Chocolate" during your order. Candies may include Skittles, Nerds, Airheads, Twizzlers, Payday, Caramels, Nostalgic candies, More (assortment may vary). The "Hammond's" Chocolate Bar will be replaced with a non-chocolate candy bar or a "movie size" box of non-chocolate "movie candies".
- OR if choosing chocolate, use expedited shipping with 2 days or less. But BE CAREFUL - Though the ice packs keep the chocolates cool during the 1-2 day transit, please be sure someone will be available to retrieve the package, and store it in a cool place immediately after it is delivered. We cannot guarantee the chocolates will not melt, since the amount of time the package is left outside, or the rare event of a transit delay is beyond our control.
