Warm Weather Shipping


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 degrees 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.
