Membership

What will I receive in each shipment?

Each month, we feature one exceptional chocolatier or boutique chocolate shop then assemble a variety of their signature creation along with our monthly newsletter, In Pursuit of Chocolate, offering origins and histories of each featured chocolate, what creative ingredients were used to make them, and most importantly, what to look for when tasting them.

The best way to see exactly what you get each month is to review our current annual

How long is the membership term and do I have to ship every month?

Gift and personal memberships are available from 2 to 12 months or even on a month to month, open-ended basis.

Flexible ordering allows you to receive or send chocolate shipments every month, every other month, or quarterly. You can even ship on specific months, creating your own custom shipping schedule using our Design Your Own Club™ program. (I.e. send a shipment in your gift recipient's birthday month, anniversary month, for Mother's Day, Christmas…You get the idea!)

How does your 100% Satisfaction Guarantee work?

Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee ensures that every chocolate you purchase from The Gourmet Chocolate of the Month Club meets your high standards or we will replace it or refund your purchase. Simple as that.

Why should I choose The Gourmet Chocolate of the Month Club?

To select our featured chocolatiers, we work closely with Zingerman's®, named by Food and Wine Magazine as 1 of 25 of the World's Best Food Markets. They help us source true artisanal chocolates, hand-made from fresh, wholesome ingredients and crafted in small batches with dedication to innovation and artistry. Many of our chocolatiers have been repeatedly acknowledged in their industry, but often their products have very limited distribution due to their limited production capabilities. All of our chocolates are made to order from secret blends of the highest quality cocoa beans, ripened, fermented, and roasted to perfection. You will taste the difference.

We stand by every chocolate we send you and back it up with our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee and a dedication to responsive, friendly and knowledgeable customer service that's earned us an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Learn more about our chocolate selection process.

Shipping

We ship within the continental 48 United States. We cannot ship to Hawaii or Alaska.

When will my shipment arrive?

Initial shipments: are sent on either the 3rd or 4th Tuesday or Wednesday of the month, depending on when your order was placed.

Subsequent shipments: are sent on the 3rd Tuesday or Wednesday of the month.

NOTE: November & December ship dates are moved up one week to avoid conflicting with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Shipments are sent via Next Day Air Service from May–September and 2-Day Service from October–April.

Do I have to be home to receive my shipment?

All shipments are sent via Federal Express. Due to the perishable nature of the product, shipments are sent without a signature required to avoid excessive time in the carrier's possession. It is therefore very important that you ship to a location where someone will be there to receive it. Many of our members ship to work locations or to a neighbor who is often home.

How do I change my delivery address?

Please either call us at 800-625-8238 or email us at [email protected] no later than the 1st of the month to change your delivery address.
