Description should read "white chocolate". These were very cute, just like pictures! The cellophane wrap was just a bit short for the ribbon ties, but we managed to tie them off with two people. These were the cutest and most talked about favor at the reception, as the wedding coordinator set them at each place setting! Thank you for the prompt and carefully packed delivery. I'm very happy I found your product online.

Only gave 3 stars because these did not stay cold at all. Unfortunately the weather had turned really warm and think I should have ordered more of these for my pops.

Most deliveries are 2-3 days, so most likely the ice will no longer be frozen or possibly cool by the time it reaches its destination. Items are packed in several layers in the center of the shipping box as much as possible to keep the warm out and the cool in. The main goal is for the candy to arrive not melted. This order did arrive just fine as noted in the customer's review of the actual items. As noted in my shop announcement, ice and lining (when necessary) are included in the shipping cost this time of year. If temperatures are above 90°, additional ice should be purchased. For additional information on warm weather shipping, see this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/171976358.

About

The Sugar Barn

The Sugar Barn was really created on a whim after my youngest child graduated from high school. With more time on my hands, I turned a hobby into a small business.

I put a lot of time and effort into making sure all the items I create look and taste great. I want customers to be thrilled with their purchases from my shop so that they will return again and not hesitate to refer me to others.

***WARM WEATHER SHIPPING*** (TEMPERATURES 72° and above)
Warm weather shipping is not in effect year round. Please check my shop announcements to confirm if warm weather shipping is in effect when you purchase. Warm Weather shipping includes ice sheets and thermal lining (when necessary). For detailed information on warm weather shipping go to: https://www.etsy.com/listing/171976358. If warm weather shipping is not in effect when you order, but you would like to add ice sheets/thermal lining, you may purchase them here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/171976358.
*************
I ship orders via USPS Priority Mail which takes 2 to 3 business days for delivery. Even though this has been accurate up to 99.6% of the time for my shop, I cannot guarantee it as USPS does not offer this guarantee to me. My shipping costs include actual USPS shipping fees and the following packaging materials which are always NEW: interior boxes, foam sheets, bubble wrap, and clear plastic bags (when ice sheets are included in the shipment). I may also use the following recycled items in your shipment: bubble wrap, air pillows, stuffing papers, and insulated lining. USPS costs are estimated to cover the entire U.S. If actual shipping costs are overestimated by more then $1, a refund will be issued.

THE SUGAR BARN IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR INCORRECT OR UNDELIVERABLE ADDRESSES.

Additional policies and FAQs
Communication is very important to me, so please email me with any questions you may have. I want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase.
**************
PROCESS:

All items are MADE TO ORDER and need time to be created.

I am normally booked 7-10 days in advance, so I recommend placing your order 3+ weeks in advance of your event date. Placing your order as early as possible will help secure your date on my calendar. Each week I reserve a few "RUSH" spots so that orders can be processed and shipped sooner if necessary. There is a Rush Processing Fee for any order that needs to be shipped within 7 days or less from the order date. Please see the "RUSH ORDER" section below.
***************
RUSH ORDERS:

A "RUSH ORDER" is when items need to be shipped in 7 days or less from the order date. The rush order fee is an "overtime" fee and not a shipping fee. See the RUSH Listing for more information: https://www.etsy.com/listing/211077057
****************
FLAVORS:

I offer the following flavors: Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate, Peanut Butter, English Toffee, & White Chocolate. I can also add other flavors to the white chocolate. (Watermelon, Rootbeer, Cherry, Peppermint, & Pina Colada are available at this time.)
******************
PRICES/DISCOUNTS:

My treats are reasonably priced based mostly on weight and a bit on complexity/details of the item. They are all handmade by me personally.

I do not offer volume discounts simply because it does not take less product or time to complete a larger order.

Please do not order if you are uncomfortable with my prices.
****************
RIBBON:

Each item (except cupcake toppers) can be individually wrapped and tied with a ribbon. An extra ribbon per item is $1.50-$2.50/dozen. See EXTRA RIBBON listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/211071804
******************
CARE FOR YOUR ORDER:

Treats should be eaten within 4-5 weeks (pretzels sooner as the exposed stick will eventually become stale). Store them at room temperature out of direct heat and light. I do not recommend freezing them or storing them in the refrigerator. If treats become soft or slightly melted, they can be placed in the refrigerator for a short period of time.
