International – Last Recommended Christmas Delivery Dates
For international deliveries, click here to see your latest recommended delivery date according to the country to which you are sending Roly’s Fudge. We send using ‘International standard and International tracking’ services. Please allow a few days before the date displayed on Royal Mail as we need to assemble your parcel and then send it out.
Please note that we always recommend you place your delivery as early as possible (preferably mid November) for international parcels as Royal Mail can get really busy when delivering both within and outside of Europe. This is true in Europe too because customs are taking a while at present to clear parcels from the UK.
‘When should I order my Roly’s Fudge so it arrives in the best quality and in time for Christmas?’
All our fudge boxes and fudge sauce have, as of late October, a best before date of 2022.
That means our fudge will stay fresh until Christmas. We recommend to place your order early so it arrives with you in plenty of time.
Every December, thousands more parcels are sent on Royal Mail than normal. Please bear this in mind and order in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
Our recommendation to avoid disappointment is to place your order as soon as possible – by the 10th December if you can!
If your parcel is particularly urgent then please consider using the ‘Special Delivery service’ for an additional £7.00 (available as you checkout online or order by phone).
