How long will it take for my order to ship?
All orders are processed and shipped on the day they are received when the order reaches us by 5pm EST Monday through Friday during the cold months (mid September through mid May). However, we do not ship "over the weekend" in warm weather and switch to a "Summer shipping schedule" during those months,processing orders Monday through Thursday.

It depends on the level of service that you select at checkout but we have made it simple and easy for you to calculate your prospective shipping costs. - Free Shipping is available for orders of $59 and up going to a single address. With this option, your order will be delivered by the 3rd business day. - With the Standard 2-Days Service, shipped to a single address, one item costs $14  and each additional item costs another $4. Delivery is completed by the 2nd business day. - With the Overnight Service, shipped to a single address, one item costs $21 and each additional item costs another $5. Delivery is completed the next business day. Please keep in mind that UPS charges us per package and that these prices apply to items shipped to a single address in one shipment.

How will I know that my order has been shipped?
You will receive a confirmation email with tracking information directly from UPS once your order has shipped, as well as a delivery notification.
Do you ship during the Summer?
We ship Leonidas Belgian Chocolates year round but switch to a "Summer Shipping Schedule" mid May through late fall as WE DO NOT ship "over the weekend" during the warmer months. At that time, the orders placed with the Free Shipping and the Standard option after 5 pm EST on Wednesdays, and on the Overnight Service after 5 pm EST on Thursdays will not be shipped until the following Monday so that your chocolates do not sit in the heat in transit over the weekend.
Do you ship outside the US?
We do not ship outside of the Continental US. To find a Leonidas Belgian Chocolates retailer near you, please visit

We recommend that in the winter months, especially during the Holidays, you order as early as possible. We cannot be held responsible for delays caused by inclement weather in transit. 
Can I order now and receive my shipment at a later date?
Yes, but we are unable to process these requests through our website. To arrange a future delivery date, simply call us during store hours at 1-800-900-CHOC.
