Shipping Warning: Delicate Product
If we could hand-deliver every order, believe us, we would!
Once a package leaves our facility, we (frustratingly) can't control how it is handled by the mail carriers. Due to the delicate nature of French macarons, some breakage can occur in transit. We do everything in our power to ensure that our beautiful macarons are protected— we have developed special packaging to perfectly encase the macarons. We use insulated packaging, lots of soft bubble wrap and include ice packs in every box to keep the macarons fresh & avoid melting. We put FRAGILE stickers all over the box! We only offer expedited shipping AND all shipments are insured by the mail carrier.
The vast majority of our orders reach our customers with no breakage, but of course there are always outliers.
If you place an order to be shipped, you agree to the following:
No Guarantees: We do not take responsibility for any damages or delays after the product has left our facility. However, our packages are insured by the mail carrier. We encourage our customers to send us pictures of any damage. With photo evidence, we can submit a claim to UPS and replace your order! No Refunds: Due to the perishable nature of our products, we do not accept returns or give refunds.
Our macarons are made-to-order. Depending on the type of order, we need time make it!
