Services, Policies & Terms of Sale
Amy Peterson Chocolate makes all our products by hand in small batches to give you the freshest, best tasting confections. Please allow 4 days for production and shipment of all standard orders. Please contact us for availability and production times on any custom orders.
Our confections are packaged to arrive safely. From May 1st through September 30th we require a warm weather Packaging upgrade and depending on destination, Next Day Air Shipping. We will not ship during these months without the warm weather upgrade due to the fact that we cannot guarantee the confections will arrive in good condition. If Next Day Air Shipping is required, we will contact you via email with the amount of additional charges and request your approval to ship.
We ship year-round throughout the United States exclusively with UPS. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship internationally at this time. UPS can not ship to P.O. boxes, APO or FPO locations, so please provide us with a street address for your package destination.
Amy Peterson Chocolates ships UPS ground to Chicago and its suburbs. Outside of this general area, we can offer the following shipping options through UPS as needed: Ground, 3 Day Select, 2nd day Air, 2nd Day Air AM, Next Day Air Saver, Next Day Air, and Next Day Air Early AM.
