I ordered online and they were in auckland the next day. That solved all my Christmas presents (9 boxes) and everyone loved them. You don't ever need to buy any other brand of chocolate. Jiri makes the best, most delicious, without comparison. A tip: if you buy in person at the Wellington or Auckland stores, there's a loyalty card and you have a free box after spending $100, not necessarily all at once. Fantastic! The rosemary apricot one is my favourite - heavenly.
