In what flavors can the chocolate high heel shoe be purchased?
Dark chocolate with pink (strawberry) polka dots; milk chocolate with pink polka dots; pink with dark trim and a butterfly at the toe; white chocolate with dark accents; solid dark chocolate with gold luster dust;  solid milk chocolate with silver luster dust; dark chocolate with white zebra stripes; and orange  chocolate with dark on the interior.  We also sell a wedding version that is all white chocolate.

Is the purse included?
Yes, the clear purse is included with the large high heel shoe.

Can you make the high heel shoe in custom colors or flavors?
Chocolate is a limited medium when it comes to color. Since our chocolate is all natural, we tint it only for large-scale projects. Besides dark, milk and white chocolate, we have white chocolate that is naturally flavored with strawberry (pink), and orange (which is very orange). From these flavors and colors, we can produce polka dots or a marble pattern (two colors swirled together). We’ve also made a shoe in a cow pattern and also a zebra pattern. These are custom orders and require a minimum of ten working days. Shoes utilizing more than two flavors may be subject to a surcharge. Please contact us directly through for these custom shoes.

Do you ship during the summer?
Yes.  We cold pack for warm weather—we even check the temperature of the destination before we ship to make sure our chocolate reaches you in top shape.  If we can ship a pallet of chocolate to Phoenix in August, we can get a box to you—delicious and unaffected by heat.  Note that shipments to warm-weather locations require Fed Ex Two-day Air with cold packs in most cases.  Unfortunately, we CANNOT guarantee safe arrival if you select Fed Ex Ground.
