  • Are your products shipped fresh?

  • Supremely! Did you know that most baked goods in grocery stores sit on shelves for 6-12 months? At Allison’s Gourmet, we have high expectations so that kind of thing would never fly with us. Our goodies must be fresh and free of preservatives and icky ingredients. Our packages will keep your goodies fresh at room temperature for 5-7 days. Beyond that, we recommend the storage methods below. In the event that your goodies arrive in unacceptable condition and you followed our shipping guidelines, contact us immediately. If your order arrives damaged, please keep your packaging materials. We may need them to process the claim.

  • How do I store my Allison’s Gourmet goodies?

  • Using ultra-pure ingredients similar to those found in a home kitchen means our sweets need a little extra care in storage to maintain freshness. 
  • - Cookies, brownies, and fudge: freeze for up to 3 months in their original packaging (tip: cut the fudge and brownies into 12 pieces and return to them to the bag in their tray). To enjoy, simply take out the portion you’d like, and thaw for 10-30 minutes at room temperature. Cookies and brownies can be warmed in a toaster oven at 200 degrees for 3-5 minutes. 
  • - Chocolates and confections: store best in a well-sealed container in a cool, dry environment for up to 3 weeks.

  • Why does chocolate get white spots?

  • In transit, temperature fluctuations can occur and cause some of the cocoa butter to rise to the surface of the chocolate or "bloom". This is a cosmetic issue only and does not affect the flavor or quality of the chocolate.

  • Do you sell your products in stores?

  • We choose to sell only directly to our customers through our website, rather than in stores so that you receive our premium products in optimal condition every time.

  • Can you mail a catalog to me?

  • To reduce the consumption of precious natural resources, we publish our catalog showing all currently available products only here on our website.

  • How are your sweets packaged?

  • Most orders are elegantly gift packaged in post-consumer recycled and recyclable gift boxes. Specific gift packaging requests may be made in the "Special Instructions" field at the very end of the checkout process. (To eliminate excessive packaging, Monthly Clubs are gift-boxed for their first shipment only.)
    - Gift wrap is available for $4 on any order except gift baskets, which come in their own complete gift packaging.
    - Prices are never included in our shipments.
    - A free hand-written gift card is available for each order. Enter your message during checkout.

  • Can I place one order to ship to multiple recipients?

  • When shipping to multiple recipients, each recipient's order needs to be entered separately. When you create an account, you can create an address book and will have access to a "reorder" button to streamline the ordering process.

  • What methods of payment do you accept?

  • We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and PayPal. Simply choose either "Credit Card" or "PayPal" during checkout.

  • What is your substitution policy?

  • On occasion, we may sell out of specific products within our vegan gift baskets, samplers, and sets. In that case, we will substitute a similar item of equal or greater value to prevent a shipping delay.

  • Do your products contain food allergens?

  • - Nuts: Nuts are used in our facility, therefore, all of our products may contain traces of nuts even when nuts are not an intended ingredient.
  • - Dairy: Due to the limited demand for 100% dairy-free organic chocolate, the raw ingredients for organic, fair-trade chocolate are processed on equipment also used to process milk chocolate. The machines are cleaned meticulously between runs, and thousands of pounds of dairy-free chocolate are flushed through the machines. For safety and legality, we must state that there may be a chance that chocolate items may contain traces of dairy, even though dairy is never an intended ingredient.
  • - Soy: Some of our items with chocolate contain soy lecithin. See ingredients for each product as shown on the product page.
  • - Wheat/Gluten: All of our baked goods are made with organic oat flour, which may be milled in the same facility as wheat flour. Thus, our products may contain traces of wheat or gluten even though it is not an intended ingredient.

  • Are all of your products vegan?

  • Yes! Allison's Gourmet is a vegan company, which means that all of our products are made without animal ingredients (no eggs, dairy, butter, honey, etc). Our sweets are cholesterol free (cholesterol comes only from animal products) and do not contribute to the animal cruelty found in animal farming practices. See Food Allergens above for information on allergen traces.
  • We use only certified organic sugar, which is guaranteed vegan by the organic certification rules, which disallow filtering sugar through bone char.

  • Are your products kosher?

  • Each ingredient we use is certified kosher. We have chosen to avoid the expense of kosher certification given that the premium-quality, organic ingredients and detailed hand processes we use already make for high costs.
    Back to top
  • Do you offer gluten-free/wheat-free goods?

  • In our baked goods we use organic oat flour, which may be milled in the same facility as wheat flour. Thus, all of our products may contain traces of wheat or gluten even when it is not an intended ingredient.
    Back to top
  • Do you have anything that is sugar-free?

  • Only premium herbal tea blends and triple-certified coffees are sugar free. Our goal is to offer organic, vegan desserts that are reminiscent of the taste and texture of their traditional counterparts. Eliminating animal products makes the ingredients we do use critical to creating texture, which is unfortunately not achieved with only alternative sweeteners.

  • What is the nutritional information for your products?

  • The specific nutritional information for our products is not available at this time. All of our offerings are free of cholesterol and animal products. This does not mean that they are fat free or intended to be low fat. While there are many products on the market that boast these claims, our goal is to offer the most exquisite organic, animal-free goodies using the finest gourmet ingredients.

  • What is fair-trade?

  • Fair-trade certification assures fair prices and fair working conditions for farmers in the developing world, where our chocolate and coffee are sourced.
    Back to top
  • What is organic?

  • Organic agriculture refrains from the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides to protect from toxic pollution the native plants and animals, farmers and their neighbors, as well as the water table and the entire ecosystem from toxic pollution. Organic farming relies instead, on developing biodiversity and soil fertility, making organic foods healthier for humans, animals, and our planet.
