We craft our chocolates with the finest and freshest ingredients. Our chocolates do not contain any additives or preservatives. Because of this, they should be enjoyed within a certain time frame to ensure optimal flavor. Most of our products have a 6 - 9 month shelf life and each package also includes a "Best By" date.

  • Store your chocolate at room temperature, ideally between 65 - 72 degrees
  • Do not refrigerate
  • Store in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and odors
  • Seal in an airtight container or wrap with plastic wrap
