How should I store my chocolate?

Chocolate is best stored in a cool, dry place between the temperatures of 60°F-70°F.

When stored appropriately, the shelf life of our chocolates vary. Bonbons last between 6 to 8 weeks. Solid chocolate and chocolate bars are best enjoyed within a year, and our caramels within 6 months.

Generally, it's best to avoid the refrigerator or freezer due to the high humidity that often causes blooming (when your chocolate and cocoa butter separates and you see that white layering or speckles).

If you desire to store your chocolate in your refrigerator it's best to do so in your freezer. Be sure to wrap your chocolate with several layers of protection and place it in a tightly sealed container to keep moisture out. When you choose to enjoy it next, bring your chocolate to room temperature before unwrapping.

Did you know chocolate is odor and fragrance absorbing!
Chocolate is highly sensitive. It is susceptible to temperature (too cold/too hot), moisture, air and light. It is highly absorbent. The fat and sugar it contains will absorb surrounding odors and flavorings so avoid storing it near scented candles, spices and cheese.

Chocolate is best stored in a dry, odor-free place with good air circulation. Good storage practices help avoid decay, undesired features like fat bloom and sugar bloom, and help extend shelf life.

Do you have vegan chocolate?

Yes, our dark chocolate in 55%, 64% and 72% are vegan friendly. We have a nice selection of chocolate bars, chocolate bark and bonbons that are vegan.

Our dark chocolate bonbon fillings are made with coconut cream.

Our dark chocolate covered caramels are not vegan.

Do you have sugar-free chocolate?

Visit our Northglenn, CO space at the Painted Tree Boutique for a selection of low-sugar and sugar free options.

Why can't I find shipping options?

Unfortunately, due to the high vulnerability of product melt, we do not ship to certain states when temperatures are far from ideal. Especially during the hot Summer months the following states are considered too high risk due to temperatures and deliver-ability. AZ, AL, FL, GA, HI, LA, MS, NC, OK, SC, TX, VA, CA, AR, IA, ID, IN, IL, KS, KY, OH, NV.

Please refer to our Shipping policy for additional information.

Why are shipping options so limited?

Nobody likes to receive melted chocolate! and we want to ensure (to the best of our ability) your chocolate reaches you and your recipients looking and tasting great.

Because temperature sensitivity and timing are critical when it comes to shipping chocolate, we elect to use the most reliable shippers who will guarantee on time delivery and provide tracking information so you know when the product arrives to make sure it is quickly removed from any possible extended heat exposure.

We ship nationwide using providers that will get you your product fastest. Most critically during the Summer months or year-round cities that maintain temperatures above 75 degrees, we highly recommend selecting the fastest option available.

Please note that our chocolates are made and shipped from Colorado, so orders going to the West and South/South East will be the most vulnerable. In some cases we will not ship to a particular state including Nevada and Arizona.

Please refer to our shipping policy for further information.

How do I track my order?

As soon as we've fulfilled your order, you'll receive an email notifying you when your order has shipped along with tracking details for your reference. Once your order has been handed off to the selected shipping provider, it is the responsibility of the customer to track the order.

When will my order be delivered?

Shipping days are dependent on the season. Starting in October, when temperatures are below 60 degrees shipping is Monday through Friday.

During the warmer months starting in April, we ship Monday thru Wednesday to avoid our chocolates being vulnerable to extended exposure of heat in a warehouse.

Delivery is based on your chosen shipping method at checkout.
