How To Travel With Personalised Chocolate Gifts In the Summer

Chocolate Torte Cake

The melting point of chocolate is between 30° C and 32° C.

As the weather gets warmer and destination events especially weddings pick up, customers ask more how to ensure their chocolates don’t melt.

Now except you put the chocolates directly in the sun, your chocolates are not likely to melt before you reach your destination.

Keep your chocolates waterproof

The best way to package your personalised chocolate gifts is to put them in a freezer bag or just a carrier bag. The idea is to make sure they’re at least in a waterproof container.

Keep your chocolates cool

Next, get a thermal bag preferably one that comes with ice packs. Otherwise, you’ll need to get ice packs anyway to keep the thermal bag cool as you’ll be popping your chocolates into the thermal bag. Remember, you won’t be able to take this into the plane due to liquid restrictions.

Since you don’t want the ice packs crushing the chocolates nor the chocolates moving around too much, get some bubble wrap or even just some newspaper to pad the thermal bag. Make it as compact as you can, filling up as much space with wrap or paper.

This will ensure the chocolates don’t move around too much and end up broken.

Enjoy Your Chocolates

So once you get to your destination, get the chocolates out of the bag and they should be fine in a cool room or cupboard. Otherwise, just keep them in the thermal bag but remember you’ll need to re-freeze them if defrosted.

Generally, keeping your personalised chocolates away from any direct sunlight or a warm room should keep them in perfect condition. Don’t take them out of the waterproof bag till ready to use and avoid too many hands handling them. Body heat is able to melt chocolate and if you’re in a warm country, hands are likely to be on the very warm side.

      That’s fine Leslie. At least you know where to come should you ever need to travel with chocolates.

      Hi Linnie unfortunately I can’t. However at the bottom of the email you should be able to unsubscribe. Please have a look. Hope that works. Technology can be a pain.
