The map below indicates approximate shipping time from our Dayton Ohio plant using UPS standard ground shipping within the United States. You can have your chocolates shipped immediately or choose to delay the shipment. Please note that the date you select is the date the order will be shipped, not the date the order will arrive at its destination. In addition, Saturdays or Sundays are not included as shipping business days. During the warmer months, we will not ship on Fridays to prevent chocolates from being left in warm dock areas.
WARM WEATHER GUARANTEE
Because Esther Price chocolates are perishable and fragile, special care is required when shipping your order. We routinely use special shipping boxes to ensure your order will not be damaged. To ensure food safety and preserve quality in warm weather months and, year round, in warm-weather states, we must pack your order in an insulated box with ice packs and ship it 2 day air (depending on the state) to prevent your chocolate from melting. We realize this adds additional cost, but we will not compromise the quality you expect from us. We yearn for cooler weather as much as you do so that these costs can be alleviated in most states!
Esther Price does not use high fructose corn syrup (HFCS); in fact, our corn syrup contains zero fructose. Esther Price uses standard corn syrup which is fructose free. Esther Price sugar free chocolate candies are sweetened with maltitol or other sugar alcohols. These ingredients are sweet like sugar, but metabolize more slowly. Sugar alcohols contain calories which are listed on the nutritional label.
All of our milk, dark and white chocolate contain dairy or milk products. Any person with a milk or dairy allergy is advised
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CHOCOLATE
To maintain the fine flavor and freshness of your chocolates, keep them in a cool environment (60-70) and the freshness should last up to 1 to 2 months.
If you would like to keep the product longer, and your box of chocolates has been opened, put the box in a sealed plastic bag, and place it in the refrigerator where it can be stored up to 6 months. Upon removing from the refrigerator, please allow the chocolates to adjust to room temperature overnight before removing the box from the plastic bag.
To freeze the product, boxes can be doubled wrapped and sealed in plastic and frozen for 9-10 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before unwrapping to keep moisture or condensation off the chocolate surface.
Premium chocolates are best enjoyed at room temperature.
