When my BBB arrived the chocolate was melted and it did not sit out on the porch. I brought it right in. Does Fed Ex not have air in their trucks or are the warehouses hot or what? I know it is Summer and it is hot but I really don't think the chocolate should be melted on delivery. Should I not order chocolate until Summer is over? Anyone else have this problem?
Some people don't order chocolate in the summer, but stock up in the cooler months. Some people use the melted chocolate as a basis for making peanut butter cups with something like PB2.
Either way - just pop the stuff in your fridge. It may be shaped a bit funny, but it should taste fine.

I'm finding I like veggies more than I like being fat.

I don't know if the delivery trucks have a/c even up front for the drivers, but I doubt they would a/c the cargo area of the truck. It gets opened and closed so much throughout the day that it would never stay at a consistent temperature. Plus you have the cargo planes on the tarmac at the airport, the semi-trucks, etc. Just too many transfer points to have a/c do any good.

I guess I got lucky. When my order came two days ago the bars were pretty intact. Perhaps a little sticky to the wrapper but otherwise intact. The chocolate donut frosting was all over the wrapper this morning but I just scraped it off with a knife and spread it back on the donut before I nuked it.
Maybe it's because my delivery has a fairly short trip, from MD to NY, and I usually get it in 2-3 days.

I think it just depends on how far your box has to travel... My BBB came from Maryland, I'm in Philly, and even my Nutrichocolates survived the trip... When I looked at the tracking from Fed-Ex, it was picked up around 630 PM from NS, and was delivered the next day at 10 AM... talk about quick service
I love it when it comes all melted. Then I use the wrapper to form a bar shape, pop that baby in the freezer and by dessert time....I'm eating a hershey's chocolate bar!! MMMmm mmmm!

I worked for Fed Ex at a warehouse loading trucks (on the middle of the night shift) back when I was in college. The warehouses DO NOT have AC, it gets HOT.....neither do the trucks (big or delivery!) I guess I am lucky even on hot days, I still have not had any melted chocolate!
If its a problem to you, as others have suggested....don't order chocolate items in the heat of summer and stock up on them in cooler months if wanted/needed.
