HOW LONG CAN I KEEP MY CHOCOLATES?
To guarantee the ultimate enjoyment, we recommend you consume your chocolates within three weeks.
HOW SHOULD I STORE MY CHOCOLATES?
Keep your chocolates in a cool, dry place, out of direct sunlight. Ideally, your chocolates are best kept at room temperature, preferably at 18°-20°C. Avoid storing your chocolates in the refrigerator, as this could spoil the delicate flavours or alter the creamy texture of their fillings. However, if you’d prefer to refrigerate your chocolates, we recommend you take them out 24 hours before removing the plastic wrap – this allows the chocolates to adjust to room temperature gradually.
CAN I SEND A GIFT ANONYMOUSLY?
Absolutely! During checkout, please add a note that your order is to be sent as an anonymous gift and we’ll ensure your name does not appear on any documentation accompanying your gift. If your gift recipient does call us, we will not reveal your identity, unless you have instructed us to.
