It is possible that not all chocolates you have chosen for your selection are available. If this is the case we will replace them with a chocolate already chosen by you or an alternative chosen by ourselves based on the flavours you have chosen. If a high percentage of chocolates are not available, we will contact you first before processing your order.

Some of our chocolates contain alcohol, by adding these to your selection you confirm that you are over 16 years of age.

Box colours may vary from those shown on the website.

We recommend that all chocolates are consumed within 6 weeks of delivery.

Therefore if you have a specific allergy or intolerance, please inform us at the time of your order and we will double check the ingredients prior to sending out your order.  All our products are stored and/or packed in an area where nuts, peanuts, eggs & gluten are present. There is a risk of cross contamination and we cannot guarantee they are 100% free of any allergenic ingredient.
