Returns Information (UK customers)

If you wish to cancel an order, written notice, by email/letter, must be given within 14 days of receipt of the good(s) and the good(s) must be returned, within 14 days of receipt. You must quote your order number and we will advise the return address/procedure. We will only offer a refund or replacement as long as good(s) are sent back in their original condition, are unused and unopened in their original packaging. For health and safety reasons, we will not be able to accept returns or refunds on any foods items that have been used, opened or had their security seal broken.

Chocolate and Warm Weather
With temperatures set to soar in the UK at Summer time we want to reassure you that we’re making every effort to get your order to you in perfect condition.
This includes upgrading our Standard Deliveries to arrive a little sooner than the usual 3-5 working days, ensuring that it’s not our chocolates that are enjoying too much of the glorious sunshine!
In the event that your order has suffered as a result of the heat, please do get in touch and we’ll honour our 100% Guarantee.
At the time of ordering you can also provide us with a contact telephone number and delivery instructions that may help us with your delivery. Typically, this could include leaving an order with a neighbor or perhaps in a safe place if you are not home. We will pass your contact telephone number and delivery instructions on to our carrier to aid delivery – who will then either call the contact number provided or leave a card to let you know where to find your order if it has been left, or what to do next if we have missed you. Please note the contact number you provide will not be used for marketing purposes.
Please note we would recommend that you do not send your order to a PO Box (larger or multiple item orders sent to a PO Box address may not be delivered).
Packing Your Order
