Shipping Information: 

Here at Red Elephant Chocolates we do all that we can to ensure that your tasty treats arrive as delicious and beautiful as they were seconds after we made them. This being the case, we are very careful with how we ship your chocolate. This care is particularly important in the summer months when even cold packs and insulated boxes cannot prevent chocolate from melting during the delivery journey.

Hot weather warning: If the temperature in your area or anywhere in route is in excess of 80 degrees Fahrenheit, we may need to postpone the shipment of your order until cooler weather permits ideal delivery.  We will notify you as soon as possible via phone (and via email if we cannot reach you) if this is the case. Please consider this for time sensitive deliveries. 

Standard Delivery Information (Lower 48 States) -    

  • Our standard shipping option is 2-3 day shipping via Fed Ex or similar, depending on weather and remoteness; which means your package will arrive 2-3 business days* after the day you place an order before the cutoff time.  
  • The cutoff time is 12:00 P.M. (noon) Central Standard Time (CST) on any business day.
  • Orders submitted after 12:00 P.M. CST or on a non business day will be processed the next business day.
  • Overnight shipping options are available for most orders for an additional charge.
Example: You place an order on Monday at 1:00 P.M. CST (note: this is after the cutoff, so it would be processed Tuesday). The package would arrive using “2-3 day” shipping on Thursday of that week. Using “overnight” shipping, it would arrive on Wednesday of that week.
  • Saturday or overnight delivery submitted before noon on Friday is available on most orders for an additional charge.

Tracking: You will receive an email with a tracking number when your order has shipped. Chocolate is sensitive to temperature (especially heat) so it is important that your package does not sit at your doorstep exposed to the elements. We suggest you use the tracking number so you know when the package arrives.

On delivery day, your package will typically arrive before 4:30 P.M. for most places and no later than 8:00 P.M. for rural locations.

Large orders: Our chocolates are made by hand in small batches, so, to ensure freshness of the product, larger orders may require additional time to prepare (up to 2 weeks, but usually only a few days). Large orders may also require additional shipping cost; however, in-store pickup is always free.  We will notify you as soon as possible if this is the case. Please consider this for time sensitive larger orders. 

Shipping outside of Lower 48 States: Flat rate pricing is for anywhere in the contiguous United States (lower 48). For shipping to Canada, Alaska, Hawaii and US Territories contact us to check pricing and availability.
