It's truly tragic when a mini melts.

As scrumptious as "chocolate soup" sounds, we want your orders to arrive in perfect condition! While our orders are carefully packaged with warmer temperatures in mind, sustained scorching temps while in transit are no match for any # of ice packs.
That said, OCHO reserves the right to temporarily hold orders when excessive temperatures pose a risk of melted chocolate (destinations with temps of 90+ degrees). We will notify you in the event your order cannot be fulfilled.


We strongly encourage our customers to sign up for FedEx Delivery Manager, which allows recipients to have better control & visibility over their shipments.  This is a FREE service through that allows you to set up delivery instructions for your driver, track & receive alerts for all FedEx packages delivering to your address, redirect & hold packages, sign for packages, and view picture proof of delivery.
