storing & info


We do not use preservatives, so our chocolates are best when enjoyed soon after we’ve made them.
Since we use many seasonal & fresh fruits, herbs & other ingredients in our recipes, their flavors & texture are at their optimal brightest & best within a few days of purchasing them.
For best flavor & texture, keep chocolate bonbons & bars in a cool, dry, dark place (ideal temperature between 60-70ºF), and not in the refrigerator unless absolutely necessary!
Our recommended timetable for enjoying our chocolate bars, truffles and bonbons (the sooner the fresher & better!):
Truffles: within 10-14 days
Filled/molded chocolates: within one month
Tablets/bars, mendiants & solid chocolates: within 6 months
Pavés: within 7 days, refrigerated within 14 days
Pâté chocolate, chocolate terrines, chocolate salami: 8 weeks refrigerated. Store chocolate charcuterie at 41ºF or cooler. We recommend storing it in an air-tight container or re-sealable freezer bag in your refrigerator to keep humidity at bay.
To cut down on waste, we don’t use plastic packaging or dividers. Our kraft boxes are recyclable and use 100% recycled boxboard and 100% recycled papers, and our cellophane bags are 100% biodegradable and compostable. Our paper box bands and bag tags are recyclable. We compost or recycle our food and paper waste
