How long will my chocolates last?
Short Answer: 3 months.
Long Answer: Our chocolates taste best when they are fresh, so to experience them at their best we recommend eating them within 3-4 weeks.
That being said they, your chocolates will still be yummy and perfectly edible up to 3 months after you receive them if stored in a dark, cool, dry place.
Where should I keep my chocolate treats?
Short Answer: A cool, dark, dry place away from smells.
Long Answer: To make sure your chocolates stay as fresh as possible, for as long as possible, it is important to store them correctly - preferably in the dark but at least always out of direct sunlight and in a cool, dry place. It might be tempting to store in your treats in a cold, dark refrigerator but the fridge is NOT a good place for chocolate. Another bad place to keep chocolate is near strong fragrances - chocolate can pick up scents and no-one wants to eat chocolate that tastes like laundry powder or aftershave.
Can I collect my order?
Short Answer: Yes
Long Answer: We love getting to meet our customers in person so to arrange collection, simply select "pick up" on the delivery menu when you place your order and send us an email to confirm when the best time to collect would be. Depending on where suits you best we may be able to arrange pick up from the workshop in Campbeltown, Argyll or The Chocolate Box in Inveraray, Argyll.
How ethical are your chocolates really?
Short Answer: We use fairtrade ingredients wherever possible and we're also vegan, organic and plastic free.
Long Answer: Whenever we can, we use fairly traded ingredients in our exclusively vegan chocolates. We believe that everyone should be paid a fair price for the work that they do. That belief extends to treating our planet fairly too; our fully recyclable, plastic free packaging is testament to that. We also work with organic ingredients and materials because it makes for safer working conditions for the farmers (and farm workers) themselves.
Why should I buy organic chocolate?
Short Answer: It's better for everyone
Long Answer: Organic farming is a more socially responsible method of growing crops and by buying our chocolates, or indeed any product, made using organic ingredients, you are helping to preserve our natural world.
When you choose organic you are choosing to say NO to the use of Genetically Modified Organisims (GMO's), NO to nasty bee-killing pesticides, NO to synthetic herbicides and NO to unnatural fertilisers. Shopping organically is you taking a stand for your planet and the people living on it, a small act of rebellion and a small act of love.
Growing organically is also easier on the native plant life and animal life surrounding farmland and it means there are no nasty chemicals running off the land into the local drinking water supplies.
