  • How long will it take to prepare my chocolate order?
    We prepare each order as quickly as we can, usually within 1-2 business days. However, some common items may go out of stock. This is due to peak demand and minimal supply, with national suppliers delivering only a few days a week. Because we strive to provide only the freshest products, we also cannot maintain a large inventory, due to the risk of spoilage.
