Shipping Info


We take as much care in shipping your A Taste of the South order as we do in making our delicious confections. We offer numerous shipping options, utilizing United Parcel Service, Federal Express, and the United States Postal Service as our carriers. Standard shipping for the contiguous U.S. is via ground service by Our Selection of Carriers.

We offer overnight (including Saturday delivery), express (2-3 business days) and standard (3-10 business days) shipping. Saturday and Sunday are not business days to all the shipping carriers. Packages do not ship, move or deliver on weekends unless using Saturday Delivery. You can also specify the shipping date that works best for you. Please note that shipments to an APO/PO Address must use Standard Shipping (USPS) and can not be guaranteed for a specific delivery date.

We strive to ship orders the same day they are placed, but in some instances orders may require 2 business days to ship. Orders must be placed by 1:00 pm EST to be considered for same day shipping. However, due to the extreme volume during the Christmas season, it may take extra time. We are not responsible for inaccurate addresses and re-shipments will be at the customer’s expense.

We are not responsible for delivery delays caused by adverse or unpredictable weather conditions. Because temperatures vary across the country, we may choose to not ship over the weekend (Friday) in order to ensure premium quality upon arrival. For this reason, we cannot guarantee Monday deliveries.

Service at A Taste of the South begins from the moment you place your order. When you send a gift of our southern candies, you can be assured that it will arrive in perfect condition. And, when changes in climate or destination require extra care, our chocolates are packed appropriately in climate-controlled packaging. However, if for any reason your order does not meet with your satisfaction, simply return it to us for a prompt, courteous replacement, exchange or refund.

International Shipments may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied when the package reaches its destination. Custom policies vary from country to country. We have no control over these costs and cannot predict what they may be; we cannot be responsible for this additional cost. If you have specific questions, you may contact your local custom offices for information. Please phone customer service for international shipping charges when placing order.
