Can I still order online?
Yes! Our online shop is open so you can order your favourite chocolates 24/7.
When will I receive my order?
We’re doing our best to continue to serve our valued customers during this challenging time. As our shipping partners experience delays, we’re unable to make any guarantees on shipping timelines. You can visit www.purdys.com/shipping-gift-guarantee to find our estimated delivery timeframes.
Can I create a custom box/basket of chocolates online or in shops?
Can I get my chocolates gift wrapped/bowed in-shop or for an online order?
At this time, we’re only offering custom logo ribbons for corporate gifting orders. While we love adding special touches to your order, we're currently unable to offer bowing services in our efforts to keep you and our teams safe. We have limited staffing available and safety measures in place to ensure social distancing and decreased contact with our chocolates and products.
Are the packaged chocolates safe from contamination?
Yes, packaged chocolates are safe. According to the latest findings from the BC Center for Disease Control and the WHO, the virus is not found to be spread through food but from person-to-person. Confirmed by the CDC Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are no known cases of COVID-19 spreading through food.
Is my order safe from contamination?
Yes, your order is safe. We’re closely following the guidance of government and health authorities and we’ve taken further precautionary steps in our retail shops, factory kitchen and fulfillment centre, including increased frequency of regular cleaning and sanitation, to ensure our product safety and quality will not be compromised.

Does Purdys have low-carb or sugar-free chocolates?
Purdys has a line of No Sugar Added chocolates, sweetened with maltitol and isomalt, as a potential alternative for diabetics or those looking to decrease glucose intake. See the complete collection here.
Maltitol and isomalt are sugar alcohols. Sugar alcohols are carbohydrates with a chemical structure that partially resembles sugar and partially resembles alcohol. Due to this unique chemical structure, they are slowly and incompletely absorbed and metabolized by the body. As such, maltitol and isomalt contribute fewer calories after consumption than most sugars. Because of this slow digestion process, consumption of maltitol and isomalt may have a lesser effect on blood glucose levels and insulin response than regular sugar.
Those with diabetes should consult their physicians or health professionals about the effects of maltitol and isomalt in their diets. Diabetic consumers should monitor their responses to consumption of maltitol, isomalt or other sugar alcohols, as individual responses may vary. Excessive consumption of maltitol and isomalt may cause bloating and/or diarrhea.
Does Purdys have nut-free chocolates?
Unfortunately, none of our chocolates on Purdys.com can be labelled nut-free as all products are made and packaged in the same facility.
We do have a nut-free milk chocolate fundraising bar that you can purchase here.
Does Purdys have kosher-certified products?
Yes, see the complete kosher-certified collection of chocolates here.
Is white chocolate vegan?
Our white chocolates are made with dairy ingredients, and therefore cannot be vegan. Our vegan chocolates can only be made without animal-based ingredients, with our vegan-only equipment and within our vegan-only areas.
Is dark chocolate vegan?
No. While our dark chocolate does not contain any dairy ingredients, it is still made with equipment and within areas where it may come in contact with dairy ingredients. Our vegan chocolates can only be made without animal-based ingredients, with our vegan-only equipment and within our vegan-only areas.
What is the best way to store Purdys chocolates after I receive my order?
Our chocolates are best stored between 20-22°C, and away from smells or odours. Please consume your chocolates within approximately 3-4 weeks after purchase.
I’d like to own a Purdys’ franchise. How do I get started?
Purdys Chocolatier owns and operates all of our own retail shops. We do not sell franchises or chocolates wholesale.
Can I take a tour of your Factory Kitchen?
Unfortunately we are not able to offer public tours of our Factory Kitchen at this time.
