The cost to ship is based on the weight, the destination zip code, and the type of service selected. We know it's expensive, as many candy products are heavy. We do receive volume pricing from the shippers we use, and we pass along savings to you the customer. In your shopping cart, there is a link to "estimate shipping". Simply enter your state and zip code to have the rates displayed by available carrier and service type. Packages are picked up from our warehouse Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays. We do not ship orders on weekends.
