Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
About our Products
How should the chocolate be stored?
The chocolate should be stored in a dry, cool place (ideally 68 degrees Fahrenheit) and out of the way of direct sunlight and direct heat (ie, heating vent or next to a stove). We do not recommend refrigeration.
How long do the chocolates last?
All of our shipments have a minimum shelf life of 3-4 weeks from receipt of the gift box as we make our products fresh. Most products have a shelf life of several months after receipt. There is an 'enjoy by' date on the back of each Maggie Louise Confections box for your convenience. We recommend using the 'Deliver By' feature when placing an order to make sure it arrives closest to its freshness date in the future.

Please note that although we make efforts to keep products separate, it may contain traces of dairy and egg. All other chocolates and fillings contain dairy, egg, gelatin and/or honey and are therefore not vegan.

What does it mean `Guaranteed Delivery` for a Holiday?
When we offer `Guarantee Delivery` for a Holiday like Mother's Day or Valentine's Day, that means that we attempt to deliver the gift on or before the holiday in question. We move mountains to make this happen but we can't control everything such as unexpected weather delays and technical problems with our Delivery Partner, Fedex. If we're unable to meet this guarantee, we will refund the shipping amount paid for the order.

During the warmer months , we only ship on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to ensure your order will arrive by the end of the business week. Orders may be shipped 2-Day or Overnight for an additional fee. Upon request, we will also ship using a client's FedEx or UPS account.
