And for non-holiday shipping cutoff times? Here's "the Bon and short of it":
Delivery Date = Order Date + [1 -3 days for fulfillment] + [days in transit]
We can predict how long it will take us to fulfill your order, and you can choose your desired speed for UPS to ship your order. Use your desired delivery date to work backwards and decide when to order!
Did that leave you hungry for more?
Let's cover fulfillment first. We want you to know that it takes time for us prep + pack your order before we hand the package over to UPS. This doesn't happen instantly! We request up to 3 days to fulfill orders because often we fulfill orders within 24 hours, but sometimes it takes 2 or 3 days. Historically, our fulfillment window was even longer due to higher demand around chocolate holidays in December, February, April, and May. But we have been working hard behind the scenes to make some improvements which should help us to still fulfill orders within 1 - 3 days.
And onto transit. If you select a speedy shipping method like UPS Next Day Air, it means that after 1-3 days (that's fulfillment!), we will ship your order and UPS will deliver it the next day. It will spend 1 day in transit! It doesn't mean your order will appear the day after you place it -- we still need time to fulfill your order! And, we only ship Monday - Thursday to avoid orders getting stuck or melting over the weekend. This means orders placed Thursday - Sunday will ship the following week.
