Insulated Containers

When temperatures rise over 75 degress, Chocolates-4-Less.com will ship your order in specially insulated containers that also contain ice packs. While ice packs alone can only be counted on to last for 24 hours, this double insulation method extends the longevity of the ice packs to 48 hours thus keeping the product cool for a full 2 days. The result is that most orders can ship via UPS Ground (provided the shipments are within a 2-day ship zone) or 2-Day Air. This translates into huge savings in freight over one day methods that are required when using ice packs alone.
