If you are buying chocolates as a gift for someone that is living or working abroad, you may be concerned with how to send them. You can send them can be sent through the regular U.S. Postal Service airmail or through a different carrier. Or you can opt to buy chocolates from a business that takes care of the international shipping for you. Just remember to choose a quick shipping method if you are sending the chocolates in warm weather to lessen the chance of melting.
