SHIPPING DISCLAIMER: Occasionally during summertime some of the Chocolate, Cacao Butter and Cacao Liquor/Mass might melt somewhat during shipping. We do not use cold-packing materials for regular shipments, since we try to keep our shipping costs and packing costs low, in order to give you the most competitive prices. This should not affect any of your baking/cooking applications.
CocoaSupply is an INGREDIENTS supplier. For that, the appearance of products is not as important as it is to have the most cost-effective shipping options to our customers to make the ingredients the most affordable without sacrificing ethical integrity and quality. Therefore, our products are shipped everywhere without refrigeration regardless of weather conditions.
This, however, can cause FAT BLOOM and some melting together in some cases. BUT THIS WILL NOT AFFECT THE USABILITY of these ingredients. For that, we do not refund, exchange, or accept claims based on fat blooming, melting, or the appearance of the products. Otherwise, we would not be able to deliver products during warm weather.
Please note that fat bloom looks like greyish/whitish lines or spots on the chocolate/paste. It also has a sandy/crumbley texture. Once re-melted, it can be tempered again and can be used without any difference.
