SHIPPING NOTES:

Important - Please Read.
You will be asked to agree to these terms in the shopping cart.

We cannot fill your order unless you agree to the terms in the Shipping Notes. Thnx!


 


All Regular Season Deliveries



ALL orders are considered 'CUSTOM' orders.
Because of the fresh candy and personal nature of our crackers,
we do not have boxes of crackers
sitting on inventory shelves ready to mail out.

Every order takes time to fill, pack and ship.

Please do NOT assume a delivery date
.
If ordering crackers required in less than 3 weeks, check with us first via EMAIL.

Because each order is custom-filled,
we do not accept cancellations nor do we refund orders once they are placed!

Signature Receipts

FOR THE USA & UNITED KINGDOM: We know that not all of our customers want a signature receipt however it is required by YOUR country's post office when your box is delivered. This is a post office requirement and unfortunately we are unable to request that your box be left without someone signing for it.

FOR CANADA: It may be possible to have your box left at your home without a signature required. However, this is always left to the discretion of your postal carrier who will only leave the box if it is deemed to be safe. It may help if you leave a note on the door with the tracking number, your name and the date requesting the box be left on your porch or some other safe location around your home.
If you would prefer "No Signature Receipt Required", please note this in your shopping cart when you place your order.
