shipping guide

We want you to love the candy you receive from us–and we want to make sure it arrives at your door in the same perfect condition in which we shipped it. Please look over the following shipping guide and refer to it when placing your order.

When will my order arrive?

We ship orders on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. If you need to receive your order by a certain date please include a note with your order so we can work with you to make this happen.

Does someone need to be there to receive the package?

It is very STRONGLY encouraged that someone be available to receive the delivery–we are happy to ship to commercial addresses and businesses! Deliveries left unattended can be subject to damage from the weather, or even theft. If you are shipping a gift it is recommended that you notify the recipient that a weather-sensitive package will be arriving for them so they can ensure someone is available to receive the package.

I need candy NOW!

We ship some of our more popular items almost every day and often have a bit extra on hand. To shop our products available to ship the next day click here, and ensure your order meets the criteria below.

  1. The product ordered is included in our list of items available to ship the next day.
  2. Place your order by 2:00pm Mountain Time.
  3. Select the proper shipping method to ensure your order will arrive at its destination by Friday of that week. (Due to warm/freezing weather we do our best to make sure orders do not spend weekends in transit.)

Our candies are generally made to order–any products not included on the list of items available to ship the next day may take additional processing time (unless your order serendipitously aligns with one already in production).
