I received my order melted and/or crushed:

Please review our waiver policies below regarding heat and crush damage. If you chose to insure your order we will assist you in filing a claim with the United States Postal Service for the crush damage only. The United States Postal Service is unable to insure against heat damage. Contact us immediately for further assistance.

Heat Waiver

A Heat Waiver is an understanding that Hawai’i Island Gourmet Products cannot be held responsible for any heat damage that may occur during shipping. As with all fine chocolates, Hawai’i Island Gourmet Products chocolates are heat sensitive. We take every effort in packing your order of chocolates to prevent heat damage from occurring during the shipping process. Unfortunately, no parcel carrier is able to insure against heat damage.

Crush Waiver

A Crush Waiver is an understanding that Hawai’i Island Gourmet Products cannot be held responsible for any crush damage that may occur during shipping. Our chip, cookie and chocolate products are sensitive to weight and pressure. Great care is taken in the packing of your order to protect it during the shipping process. We can offer you the option of insuring your order with the United States Postal Service to cover the replacement cost of your order.

Your acknowledgement and acceptance of this return and exchange policy is required in order to proceed with the processing of your order.
