  • As a family run business, it is important to us that your sweets reach you in great condition and whilst we take responsibility for the goods arriving, we unfortunately do not have control of delivery’s once they have left our premises, therefore it is important to read our delivery information. 
  • We dispatch your orders on Monday, Wednesday & Friday. This Excludes Bank Holidays and may vary over Easter and Christmas periods. You can pick your delivery method at the checkout to ensure the goods arrive on time.
  • We aim to despatch orders on the same day, but our standard despatch time is 2 – 3 working days after ordering. (not Saturday or Sunday)
  • After you have placed an order, you will receive an email to state your order is complete (Please check your junk mail for this).
  • The chosen courier will deliver to your shipping/delivery address, if they attempt delivery and nobody is home, they might try a neighbour or take the parcel to the nearest collection point. If they are unable to deliver to the stated address, they will leave a card or email you. Please take relevant I.D. with you.
