What You May Need to Know
The majority of items sold by Bulkfoods.com are unaffected by high temperatures, but there are a handful of heat sensitive products that may melt during shipping, especially in hot summer months. Most locations throughout the U.S. do not experience high temperatures until the summer season, usually ranging from May - August; however, some Southern and Western States may be affected by higher temperatures beyond summer months, in particular: Florida, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, and Southern California.
