Shipping Information

Welcome to our Shipping Information page. At Big Island Candies, we take extra steps to ensure your gifts are handled with the utmost care and shipped to your destination without any worries. We guarantee that your purchases will arrive at their special destination in the best condition possible when you ship through us.

Because of the high perishability of our chocolate-dipped items, we will only ship your package via UPS to ensure Next Day (Hawaii) and 2nd Day (Continental U.S.) delivery to your destination, and we ship products Monday through Wednesday (Continental U.S.) and Monday through Thursday (Hawaii).

Did you know that during the summer months, before sending out your package, our specialized shipping team will check the forecasted temperature of your package’s arrival date? If temperatures are too warm (75 degrees Fahrenheit or more), we will determine how many customized cooling gel-packs to include in your shipment. These frozen gel-packs are carefully wrapped to ensure the moisture from normal thawing will not affect your purchases. Because we know how important it is to have your package reach its destination in pristine condition, we will notify you immediately if we will not be able to meet this goal due to extreme summer conditions.

We currently ship to all 50 states, Canada and Japan. For other countries, please feel free to contact our Mail Order department for assistance.
