Why is shipping so expensive?
Unfortunately, we get this question a lot. Shipping costs can get expensive, depending on the items ordered. We charge UPS rates and never inflate the costs. The syrups tend to get heavy and take up a lot of space in boxes. In order to keep our prices low, we can never offer free shipping or discounted shipping. Please know that we always strive to keep shipping costs low along with the prices of our products.
