This delicious chocolate is 100% handmade and has no preservatives or additives, therefore it does not last as long as regular chocolate. I do not store my chocolates and make them within 24 hours before sending so that you get them as fresh as possible. At room temperature, my chocolate remains at peak quality during the first 2-3 weeks. You can also extend its longevity to 3 months by storing my chocolate in the fridge. When frozen, my chocolate lasts 6 months.
