Shipping chocolate is a daunting task, especially when warm weather is a factor. While fall and winter may not lend as much concern to shippers, chocolate can still be a finicky product. If it is at room temperature, it can soften. If it is too cold, it can lose its quality through “blooming,” where its sugar rises to the surface. With Dry Ice Corp., however, you can ship chocolate like a pro.
Preparing your chocolates for the trip requires several materials. You will need a cardboard box that has enough room to store not only the goods but also the insulation and coolant necessary. Especially if you are mailing more delicate chocolates like truffles, you ought to provide more room for potential rough handling during transportation.
It will help to insulate your product by setting in foam boards on the bottom and within the walls of the box. Insulating bubble wrap can also keep your sweets and your coolant together. The refrigerant should go underneath the chocolates.
Why Use Dry Ice?
Dry ice is an excellent choice for a shipping coolant. It is lightweight, environmentally-friendly, highly-effective, and clean. Dry ice weighs less and takes up less space than ice or gel packs do, saving you on shipping costs. Because it is frozen carbon dioxide, it is a substance that exists naturally in the world and does not harm the environment. Solid CO2 sublimates back into the air, leaving no watery mess to clean. Because of how cold it is, it keeps bacteria at bay as well. With the right measurement of dry ice, your fine chocolates can reach their destination in prime condition.
