Shipping Service

All shipments are made with the United Parcel Service (UPS.) UPS does not deliver to United States Post Office Boxes.


Hot-Weather Shipping

Because chocolate is vulnerable to damage by heat, Schwartz Candies recommends that Standard (ground) Shipping be used only for shipments going to destinations where the high temperatures are below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Schwartz Candies reserves the right to delay shipment of any items that are likely to be damaged in transit. We will notify customers of any necessary or suggested delay.

When the temperatures are 70 degrees and above and the package will be in transit for two days or more by Standard (ground) Shipping, Schwartz Candies recommends the use of Overnight Shipping.


Additional Charges

Schwartz Candies reserves the right to add an additional charge to shipments in oversized cartons or to shipments packed in multiple cartons. Schwartz Candies will notify the customer of changes to the shipping cost before adding the charge.


Free Shipping

A minimum of $50.00 is required to receive free shipping. Free shipping is not available for orders with volume discounts.

Free Standard (ground) shipping is available when you purchase 2 or more Gift Boxes going to one destination. The high temperatures in the New York Metropolitan area and at the destination must both be below 70 degrees Fahrenheit in order to receive Free Shipping.
