Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does your fudge need to be refrigerated?  How long should it last?

A. Our fudge has about a 4-6 week shelf life right at room temperature.  If you want it to last longer, you can always freeze it for up to a full year.  We actually recommend to skip the refrigerator just because it tends to dry the fudge out without extending the life by that long.  

Q.  Is your fudge gluten free?

A.  The good news is that fudge itself is naturally gluten free, made up of Chocolate, Sugar, and Butter.  The only thing you have to worry about are the flavors where we add gluten additions like Oreos, Graham Crackers, Brownies, etc...  

 

Q. Do you ship with cold packs?  

A. The great thing about our fudge is that the heat doesn't hurt it, rather just makes it a little soft and then when it comes back to room temp it will solidify again or you can pop in the freezer for 30 minutes. We individually wrap each square in cellophane wrap so that the fudge can't run or ooze out. Every once in a while a box will sit in a hot postal truck or on a porch and the fudge gets so hot that it liquifies and then drips or oozes and in those cases we will always replace it right away for free with insulation packs, just let us know.  

 

Q. Where is the nutritional information? 

A.  As a small business we haven't reached the threshold yet where we are federally mandated to provide the nutritional content. If you have specific questions or just want a list of ingredients, please email us at info@zcioccolato.com.
