If you are ordering heat-sensitive sweets such as chocolate or gummies during the summer months, this Cold Shipping Box/Bag (includes an insulated shipper and a cold pack) will help keep them fresh, help to prevent them from melting. If you choose Next Day shipping at checkout, you might get away with using ice packs in a regular shipping box. But if temperatures are very high, or you choose a slower shipping method, this insulated shipper is a better bet. Please note that we use three different ways as cold shipping methods which include: a box with high-quality insulation pads, a styrofoam box inside of a brown box, or a high quality insulated bag/envelope. Natural Candy Store wants you to receive your candy just the way we received it at our warehouse. The cold shipper option will be chosen from our wonderful packing staff depending upon the items of your order to ensure you receive it safe, sound, and unmelted. If you have any questions about this or if you are unsure if you need a cold shipper, feel free to contact us. We are here to help.
