Shipping Timing

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 next day air to prevent your chocolate from melting. We realize this adds considerable 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!
