Delivery area
Orders are delivered worldwide. Deliveries are not made to PO Box numbers.  Please remember that chocolate melts in hot mailboxes, we package our deliveries simply and with minimal insulation, so if your mailbox is outside (and especially if it’s metal!) make sure there is someone to check it if the weather is hot!

Web orders are delivered free of charge in Ireland and NI, €5 to Great Britain, €8 to EU countries and €8 to the rest of the world.

Note on overseas orders – We are able to give such low shipping costs because we do not used tracked shipping overseas.   So far we have not had one item lost in the post, any problems with ‘lost orders’ have had have been issues with addresses provided or orders that have not been collected by the receiver from the post office, so please check with your post office and double check the mailing address provided before getting in touch.
