We believe in providing real value for money, it’s why we don’t use any expensive packaging!

A: No. Even though we have top level SSL encryption on our website, we do not store your credit card information on our servers. STRIPE, who handle 28% of online transactions in the world, handle the recurring subscriptions on our behalf.
Q: I subscribed on www.sweetest.co.nz before this website went live. Do I need to change my subscription?
A: No. Regardless of which website you signed up on, your subscription will continue. However, if you wish to amend your chocolate subscription in any way, you will need to log into your account on the website you signed up on.
Q: How should I store your products?
A: Our chocolate is best stored in a cool, dry environment around 18 – 22C. A cool cupboard is best. It is possible to refrigerate our chocolates if you have no other choice, and this can sometimes be useful during the warmer summer months. However, if you do choose to put them in the refrigerator we recommend sealing the chocolates in an airtight container, or perhaps a plastic bag, to prevent excessive moisture from damaging the chocolate. When bringing back out of the fridge, allow to come back to room temperature before unsealing.
Q: It’s hot outside – will the chocolate melt in the post?
A: All our products are well packaged and marked NO SUN and KEEP COOL. Most courier vans are air-conditioned and have tinted windows. This means we require a signature – the product will not be left on your doorstep! We are confident your product will arrive in excellent condition. Please note – during excessive heat (such as heatwaves), we may delay sending your product by a day or two.
Q: Is your chocolate suitable for those with nut allergies?
A: Almost all chocolate products may contain traces of nuts. My Chocolate Box will usually contain some products that contain nuts, including peanuts. We supply a full ingredient list with every My Chocolate Box.
Q: I am gluten intolerant – can I buy your chocolates?
A: Gluten is not an ingredient you will find in the better quality chocolate products! All our products are gluten free, and we do not make any products with gluten. However, if you have an extreme intolerance, please be aware that some of our ingredients we buy in (eg, chocolate) may be made in factories that also work with gluten based products. However, we run a gluten free factory.
We love chocolate too – and don’t want you to have to wait too long for your chocolate fix! Our state of the art freight system ensures your chocolate gets to you in great condition, and really fast! We aim to dispatch all orders with-in 24 hours of receiving them, excluding weekends. Delivery in most cases will be with-in 1 – 3 working days, but for rural or South Island deliveries, this may be longer. Please allow the following WORKING days for your delivery:
- Auckland 1 – 2 days (usually next day)
- North Island (exc Rural Delivery) 1 – 2 days (usually next day for main towns and cities)
- South Island (exc Rural Delivery) 3 – 5 days ( we use a 2 day service but sometimes it can take an extra day)
- Rural Delivery (as defined by our Couriers) 3 – 6 days
If it is urgent, contact us to discuss options. We do not deliver on weekends. Orders placed after 2pm will miss that day’s courier pick up and won’t be dispatched until at least the next work-day afternoon.
We do not dispatch goods on a Friday in Summer to prevent chocolate sitting in the courier depot over the weekend. Our couriers use air conditioned vans, so your chocolate will reach you in excellent condition, even on hot days. All boxes will be marked “NO SUN, KEEP COOL”. However, there may be times where there is excessive heat (heatwaves) – in these instances, we reserve the right to delay delivery until this has passed –don’t worry – this is rare, and we will contact you with-in 2 working days of receiving your order to let you know!
All items must be signed for at point of delivery – so we know the right person is getting the chocolates! We recommend you get your chocolate sent to an address where you will be during the day – often this is a work address. In the event you specifically request to have chocolate left without signature, this will be entirely at your risk, and should we have proof of delivery from the courier company, we will consider the package delivered. All My Chocolate Box deliveries must be signed for.
We do not deliver to PO Boxes – we have no control over the temperature and humidity of the holding rooms at the PO Box facilities, and want your chocolate to reach you in optimum condition!
We reserve the right to refuse refunds if your goods turn up after you required them, subject to us having stayed with-in the bounds of these terms and conditions – so please order your My Chocolate Box early if it is for a special occasion.
