- It’s beastly hot and below are a few tips for how you can enjoy candy in hot weather!
The past week has seen record hot temperatures throughout the United States and while few things are better than warm sunny weather, it can pose a challenge when shipping perishable candies.
We suggest that you purchase at least one ice pack for each candy purchased and you may want to invest in a protective thermo case to further safeguard and insulate your purchase. Please note that the thermocase will not cool your product unless you add ice packs…
Ice packs will last about two days in extremly warm weather so you may also want to consider upgrading to a faster shipping option such as UPS 2nd Dair Air or faster. We offer discounted shipping rates and if you would like more information, please do not hesitate to call.
Certain items such as chocolates and gummy candies are risky even if you follow the steps above. If possible, you might want to consider waiting until the weather cools before ordering. We know it is hard to wait but sometimes it is the safest thing to do….
Of course, when Winter arrives on the East Coast, we will be yearning for the “Dog Days” of Summer but, until then, please take caution when ordering persishable candies and please know that we will do everything in our power to help you find the safest, most economical shipping methods!
