Perishable foodstuffs are prohibited by most parcel couriers, at least when using non-specialised services. These can normally be sent via courier. Chocolate, or chocolate-based products, are perishable if they need to be refrigerated in order not to spoil.
Is it OK to send chocolate in the mail?
Shipping chocolate during more temperate times of the year is a pretty safe bet, but if you plan to ship chocolate during the late spring or summer, you need to do all you can to keep it from melting. Therefore, you’ll want to treat shipping chocolate the same way you treat shipping frozen food.
Why you shouldn t put chocolate in the fridge?
Chocolate easily absorbs odors of whatever’s in the refrigerator (Roquefort cheese, lamb curry — you get the idea). Moisture in the fridge can also lead to “sugar bloom,” meaning the sugar rises to the surface and discolors the chocolate (which has no effect on flavor, but doesn’t look too appealing).
