We ship our ice cream via UPS. We guarantee that your ice cream will arrive frozen. If for any reason your ice cream does not arrive frozen we will gladly reship your ice cream or issue you a full refund.
Please notify recipient in advance to expect delivery of a perishable item - no one likes to be "surprised" by a box of melted ice cream on their front porch!
Please confirm that the recipient will be home or their office open and that the delivery address is correct, as UPS will not forward packages.
