Warm Weather Shipping

USPS Priority shipping transit times may experience small delays, due to the coronavirus pandemic.


During the warmer months (April through September), we pack the Candy Bear Bouquets with ice packs.  But PLEASE BE CAREFUL - we cannot guarantee 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.   Also during the warmer months we do not ship on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, to avoid the possibility of a package sitting in a hot warehouse on Sunday.  All orders take 1-2 business days to prepare, then they are shipped via USPS or FedEx (sorry no hand deliveries). 

Recommended options if destination temperature 80° or higher:

  • Choose "All Non-Chocolate" during your order.  Candies may include Skittles, Nerds, Airheads, Twizzlers, Payday, Caramels, Nostalgic candies, More (assortment may vary).  
  • OR if choosing chocolate, use Express shippingBut BE CAREFUL - Though the ice packs may keep the chocolates cool during the 1 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.
