OUR FAQS

WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE & HOW DO I STORE IT.

Our Chocolate has a 12 month best before date from production, however we do recommend that once your order is received it is consumed within 6 to 8 months to enjoy the chocolate at its best. All chocolate products decorated with edible paint / edible lustre dust we recommend consuming within 3 to 4 months. All products containing topping and fillings we recommend consuming within 2 months to enjoy at their best.

Chocolate is best stored at stable room temperature. We recommend that you store your purchase in its box, in a cool cupboard away from bright lights, strong odours and heat. Please do not store your chocolate in a cold place such as a refrigerator as a rapid change in temperature may cause your chocolate to bloom, discolour or even alter the taste.

 HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?

We offer a bespoke personalised service here at A Little Gift Of Love – everything is made fresh to order. At Christmas / Halloween etc there are certain lines that we start to make up 4 to 6 weeks before hand to keep up with demand.

An average order of 30 lollipops will take 5 working days to complete and then dispatch, this can also be effected by seasonal periods such as School holidays Christmas / Easter etc which can lengthen the production period to 10 working days.

We recommend ordering in advance for any event. We do take bookings and you can pre order up to 12 months before your event. Your order will then be booked into a prime slot to be received at your chosen time. Pre bookings require payment in full and are fully refundable up to 28 days before the date of your event.
