Shipping Delays

Albanese Candy is not liable for delay of shipment due to natural disasters, shipping carrier delays that are caused by weather, labor disputes, refusal of package, and incorrect shipping information.


Albanese Candy's chocolates and gummies may require special handling when the weather is warm where your order is being shipped. Albanese chocolates have the potential to melt at 70 degrees Fahrenheit and our gummies have the potential to melt at 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

To assure that your gifts arrive without melting, shipments may require overnight delivery shipping charges or a delay in shipping, depending upon how many days your package will be in transit. In this case, 2nd Day or Overnight delivery charges may apply and will be added to your order. A customer service representative will contact you should your shipping rate change before applying it to your order and credit card. During this communication you may experience delays with your shipment until we have approval for extra charges. Since we may need to contact you, it is important that you provide us with the best contact information to reach you during our store's shipping hours 9AM-5PM Central time.

If you need to ship to a residence and you cannot be home, please leave a note instructing that the package be placed under shade. In the event your package has been sitting in heat, let it "rest" at room temperature for a few hours to give it a chance to return to normal consistency. Please keep in mind, shade will not ensure that your product doesn't melt it is just a preventative measure. If possible, try to ship your order to a business address as businesses often receive shipments earlier in the day and someone is onsite. When shipping to a residence and no one is home, the products will either be (1) left outside sitting in the heat or (2) put back in the hot UPS or FedEx truck.
