Frequently Asked Questions

What is your shipping policy?

Customers are responsible for all shipping and handling charges.  Shipping charges are determined by weight, location, and the method of shipping selected.  All orders are shipped F.O.B. Fort Worth, TX.

Mother Rucker's Sweets ships via UPS.  Please note:  Orders to APO and FPO addresses must be placed by phone at 817.451.4100.  UPS does not deliver to PO Boxes.  IF you have special shipping requirements we will do our best to accommodate you. 

Because, UPS does not move packages over the weekends or holidays, it is our standard policy to hold orders that would sit over the weekend and ship them on Monday to ensure the freshest arrival.
