    Not at all, to me, put it in refrigerator until the day before and it wil be good and retain its shape. Dont forget to put it in the fridge as soon as you reach home there. Whatever the pack they are doing shd be more than sufficient. fyi, that day in pierre's bakery, they were saying that they pack pumpkin pies for our long journey!! So, not to worry and enjoy yr trip.

    Yes...no special packing required as such. I always get them in my check-in luggage with no extra packing..and usually it stays okay. I just put in the fridge once we reach home. its okay even after a 3-4 hr drive from the airport to our place.

    Nothing will happen like that don't worry.After reaching keep in fridge immediately.
    But wrap in inside the dress so that it won't get jammed when they through the luggage.

    hi chitu,

    keep the chocolate as the last one to pack while going from here and as soon as u reach india put it in the freezer. it won't lose its shape.

    I agree with all, except - dont put the chocolates in the fridge now, in US. If you put in fridge and take it out, due to temperature difference the chocs will melt easily. But you can have the chocs in the cupboards [thats how they sell in shops right, they dont sell from fridge???]. But once you reach India, put them in fridge asap.

    No special packages are necessary.

    Refrigerating chocolate here before you leave will be to make sure of its shape; or otherwise, have to put it in between dresses to maintain the shape like someone said if you want to keep it outside.

    If yu are going after easter, then buy those big bunny shaped chocolates; my folks, both young and middle aged all loved it so much.

    hi chitu,

    hershey's nuggets, miniatures, kisses, ferrero rocher are the few chocolates that we take everytime to india. u get them in sams or costco in bulk. once we took lindt it was a great hit. also we take the hersheys almond bars. since it is easter time u will find bunny chocolates in sale.
