Perishable Foods

When ordering fresh frozen foods, your total perishable order must be a minimum of 5 pounds (any combination of fresh foods). We use plenty of dry ice and a reusable, insulated cooler – a packaging combination that will insure your products arrive frozen and in excellent condition whether you choose Express, 2-Day, or Overnight as your shipping method.

For delivery to Hawaii and Alaska, you must select NEXT DAY or 2-DAY as your shipping method when checking out.

Due to the nature of cracklins, all sales are final.

Please note that we do not ship perishable foods over the weekend.

Email Notification

Once you check out you will receive an email with your credit card receipt. Please review your order and your shipping information to make sure everything is correct. We will then process your order for shipment. Once the order label is printed, you will receive an email with the UPS tracking number.
