  • Can I have a special delivery date?

  • Will my order come all in one box?
    Your order might be packed in separate boxes to preserve product integrity. Our boxes are designed to accommodate a certain number of items without shifting or crushing the items you've chosen. Occasionally, items ordered together may not be shipped together, as we want your products to arrive in perfect condition.
  • I ordered Express. Why didn’t my gift arrive when I expected it to?
    Orders placed after 10:00 AM PST will be processed the next business day. and our carriers do not count weekend days in the calculation of their shipping.

    Unfortunately, sometimes we experience unexpected delays. We believe it best to send a substitute item of equal or greater value to ensure you or your recipient receives a gift by the intended date. We do our best to contact our customers when a substitution becomes necessary. But due to the sheer volume of orders we experience, especially during the peak of the holiday season, it is not always possible to do so.

    Yes, you may specify a PO box for the destination of your package. However, we recommend shipping to a street address to ensure that your gift arrives in perfect condition. Shipping to a PO box will incur a charge of $6.00.

Product/Gift Questions

  • If it takes 4-6 business days for delivery and you recommend refrigerating or freezing upon arrival, will my items be arriving in good condition?

    4-6 days is well within the unrefrigerated shelf life of these products. Refrigerating or freezing upon arrival extends the normal shelf life.

    All our bread products are frozen immediately after baking. Once thawed, they can be re-frozen upon receipt without affecting the taste.

  • How do I purchase a Muffin Master English muffin splitter?

    Our Muffin Master English muffin splitter can be ordered with any item offering an 'Optional Additions' selection box. Simply scroll down to the Muffin Master option, click on the item and it will be added to your order.

  • What products do you have that would be suitable for a diabetic?

    Diabetics need to look at the total carbohydrate grams per serving in foods to determine the number of “exchanges” their diet will allow. For example, one of our Signature English Muffins averages about 3 bread or carbohydrate exchanges on a diabetic meal plan (one bread/carbohydrate exchange is approximately 15 grams). Most of our Signature, Traditional and Miniature English Muffins, English Muffin Bread and Crumpets are low fat and cholesterol. The approximate dietary bread/carbohydrate exchanges for these products are as follows: Signature: 3; Traditional: 2; Miniature: 1; English Muffin Bread: 2; and Crumpets: 1 1/2.

  • Is there much sodium in your products?

    Overall, our products are not significantly high in sodium. Salt is the primary source of sodium in our products and is used as a flavor enhancer.

  • How will my gift be packaged?

    Basket Gifts: Decorative fill is put into the basket, followed by the products. The basket is then shrink-wrapped to keep the items secure. The basket is then put into a brown shipping box, and packing paper or air pillows are used to fill up voids.

    Food Gifts & Samplers (without basket/tin): Decorative fill is put into the box if needed, and products are arranged in the box and more decorative fill is put in to fill the box. These gifts are packed and shipped in brown Wolferman's shipper boxes.

    Drum/Keepsake Box Gifts: Decorative fill is put in the bottom of the drum/keepsake box, and product is packed into the drum/box with more decorative fill sprinkled on top. Gift is put into a brown Wolferman’s shipping box.

    Towers: Tower boxes are individually packed and then stacked into a pyramid. Boxes are then tied with ribbon and a bow. Tower boxes are packed and shipped in a brown Wolferman’s tower shipping box. To prevent shifting during transit, air pillows are placed around the top of the tower.

    NOTE: All gifts will contain product handling instructions. Packing slips (NOT pricing) are only put into Create Your Own gift boxes.
