Summer officially starts June 20th, bringing us longer days and lots of sunshine. At least I hope it will–it’s been pretty cool and rainy here in this corner of Washington state. Those of you who are already enjoying the sunny summer weather might think that it’s too hot to ship fudge, but don’t worry. Fudge actually travels quite well with the appropriate packaging. After the fudge leaves our kitchen we have to trust the shipping company to take good care of it, but by taking some common sense precautions we can avoid trouble. We check weather conditions before shipping and use insulated boxes and cold packs when necessary to ensure that you receive a solid block of fudge, not a puddle of it. If your fudge is soft when it arrives, just refrigerate it until it firms up again.
Don’t let hot weather keep you from enjoying your favorite flavor of fudge. We’ve got the shipping under control.
