We ship Monday through Friday using FedEx but our ice cream shipments can’t be in transit over the weekend so we are not able to deliver your package on a Sunday, Monday or a FedEx holiday.
HOW DO WE DO IT?
We pack ice cream in a cooler within a shipping box with enough dry ice to keep the contents frozen well into the evening of the delivery date. It is best to open the package immediately upon arrival and to put ice cream in the freezer. Use gloves when handling dry ice. Fun Fact: the temperature inside that box is about negative 110 degrees F which is colder than your freezer by 100 degrees.
NO SIGNATURE REQUIRED
FedEx is authorized to leave all packages at the destination without signature which will insure that your ice cream will not melt due to multiple delivery attempts. If your package is a gift please check that the recipient will be in town on the day it will arrive.
When the shipping label is created you will receive an email with your tracking number.
REQUESTED DELIVERY WEEKS
It is possible to request a delivery week by checking the appropriate box on the order. You may write the desired date into the notes as well but we will defer to shipping method chosen and ship within the chosen week if your date does not work with shipping method chosen.
IN A RUSH? UPGRADE!
All expedited orders received by Noon CST Monday through Friday will be processed same day.

Icecreamsource.com cannot be responsible for damage or loss of gifts due to unavailable recipient or incorrect address information, or theft. We are not able to change the address or cancel an order once the package has shipped. Please ensure your recipient will be in town on the arrival day.
Your package will arrive in 5 – 10 business days (or less) from the day we receive your order. Orders received with longer transit locations than shipping days left in the week will be held for shipment the following Monday. Using Standard shipping, your package will arrive Tuesday through Friday and Saturday if possible.

OVERNIGHT SHIPPING for Saturday
Order by Noon CST Friday and your package will arrive Saturday. Saturday delivery is not available in some locations.
To guarantee delivery we must have the complete and correct address. We are not able to deliver to PO Boxes, A.P.O or F.P.O addresses due the highly perishable nature of ice cream.

All orders include a packing slip with no pricing information. We enclose a gift card if there has been a message included with the order.
