How to send chocolate

Parcelpal’s guide to sending chocolate  

Can I send chocolate via parcel courier?  

Unfortunately the answer is no.  

This is because of a number of reasons. The first is that most chocolate has a shelf life of less than 6 months, meaning it is a perishable item. Perishable items are banned on all of our couriers prohibited items lists, including our own at Parcelpal. The second reason is because chocolate has a melting point that is lower than body temperature. So, the risk of the chocolate melting on its journey is very high. This not only poses a disruption risk to the courier but also poses the high risk that the receiver will receive the item not in its original state.  

Can I send chocolate within the UK?  

The rules and reasons stated above cover the whole of UK parcel services. So unfortunately, not. 


Can I send chocolate internationally?  

Unfortunately, the answer is still no. The possibility of the chocolate meeting its melting point is greater if the parcel is sent internationally as the journey will take longer to an international destination.
