Q: Why is my PO Box delivery being charged $5 for shipping even if my order qualifies for Free Shipping?

Free shipping only applies to non PO Box deliveries because we are charged extra by Canada Post for that delivery that exceeds our ability to send the PO order with free shipping.

REGULAR QUESTIONS:

How do I determine the best before date of my chocolate?


Each Peace by Chocolate product has a lot number placed on it at the time of production with the best before date on the sticker. This lot number indicates the date the chocolate was produced.

For our Chocolate bars, you can expect freshness for more than 24 months from production date.
