Shipping Information

Like many other retailers this year, we're experiencing higher than usual demand for our products coupled with slowdowns from our shipping partners. In order to avoid inventory shortages and delivery delays, we're encouraging you, our valued guest, to place orders early. It's the best way to ensure your favorite chocolates are in stock and will arrive on time. When placing your order, please make sure that the shipping method you select takes into account the following:
1) Travel time
2) Current weather at final destination

If you are shipping to a warm weather state, the system will automatically assign WARM WEATHER SHIPPING as the preferred means of transport to ensure the product arrives in perfect condition. You may elect to change the shipping method assigned in the shipping section of your shopping cart. However, if your order contains heat-sensitive products and you select an alternative method, we cannot claim responsibility for OR replace melted product.

Shipping Charges

Shipping charges are applied per address. Prices are valid for shipping within the continental United States. The rates listed do not include Saturday or Sunday delivery. Like all businesses, Munson’s Chocolates has seen significant increases in shipping costs from its carriers in addition to fuel surcharges. While we have been absorbing these elevated costs for the past 2 years, we must now modify the cost to ship our products to reflect these increases. 

Please note: we are not able to ship to P.O. box addresses.

Warm Weather Shipping

Chocolate will melt when exposed to temperatures above 72°F! We guarantee that your chocolates will arrive in perfect condition when shipped with our warm weather shipping option: Warm Weather shipping includes: Second Day shipping in heat-resistant packaging with ice packs.

If you choose to ship chocolates without the shipping and packaging recommended by Munson’s, we must ask you to take responsibility for the condition of the chocolate upon its arrival. Chocolate damaged due to heat exposure will not be replaced. We ask that you check the weather in the location you are shipping the package to, and select the best shipping option to protect your purchase from melting.

Munson’s Chocolates cannot be responsible for damage to unclaimed gifts due to incorrect addresses, the recipient not being home, or the recipient not being informed that a perishable package will be delivered.
