Frequently asked questions

Do your products contain any known allergens?

Contains dairy - Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce (butter) and Wild Mushroom Pasta Sauce (cream).

Are your products Kosher?

Our products are currently not certified Kosher.

Are your products gluten free?

All of our pasta sauces are gluten free, however, they are not certified gluten free. The equipment that the pasta sauce is manufactured on also produces products containing gluten on the same equipment. After each production, we do a swab test after each piece of equipment has been cleaned - checking the ppm of gluten to ensure our products remained gluten free.

How can I find the best quality date?

We use the Julian Date Calendar to determine the best quality date. On the pasta sauce jars, on the lid, there is a code that would look similar to this - BSS3054C. The first 3 letters determine what the product is - in this case it is Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce. Next we look at the next 3 digits - 305. That means that the sauce was manufactured on the 305th day of the year - November 1st. The next digit will tell us the year - 4 is 2014. The last letter, C, we are not interested in. Our pasta sauces are at best quality 2.5 years after the manufacturing date. That means that his sauce is at best quality until May 2017.

What are your order and Shipping Terms?

All orders are shipped via UPS Ground. Please allow 1-2 days for order processing. If orders are placed on Friday, that order will be processed the following business day. We are closed on Saturday and Sunday. Shipping is calculated by the amount of the purchase. Please allow 24 hours notice for Will Call orders.
