How long is the shelf life of Fürst chocolates?
Our chocolate products are always made fresh and by hand in our own workshop using carefully-chosen natural ingredients.
Because we consciously refrain from the use of artificial preservatives, and because chocolate products are very sensitive to temperature, their shelf life is limited to 6 weeks.
Enjoy them when they are as fresh as possible!
What is the best way to store Fürst chocolate products?
Exceptionally high-quality chocolate must be handled with care. Store Fürst chocolate products in a cool, dry place between 14-18°C and avoid large temperature fluctuations.
Please do not put chocolate products in the refrigerator or near a heater.
If the chocolate is exposed to significant temperature fluctuations, it can become grey ("fat bloom"), which affects the chocolate's appearance.
When can chocolate products be ordered?
Orders can only be shipped during the cooler times of the year, from approximately September until approximately May. Because our chocolates are manufactured fresh without artificial preservatives, they are very temperature-sensitive. In summer shipping is only possible in Austria and Germany.
Even on days which seem cool, the chocolate can be exposed to unfavourable fluctuations in temperature during transportation. For this reason, Cafe-Konditorei Fürst GmbH reserves the right to suspend orders on warmer days and to ship them only in appropriate temperature conditions.
