Full details on how our shipping programs work:


We ship from Brunswick, Maine, to addresses in the continental United States. Gift cards and dry goods can also be sent to Alaska and Hawaii. International locations require special arrangement.

Frozen Pints

Six-packs of gelato pints are shipped from Brunswick in enough dry ice to last for their journey. Packages should be opened around dinnertime on the day that they arrive. You should confirm that pints are frozen solid and haven't begun to thaw before placing them in the freezer. Gelato Fiasco can only replace pints when dry ice problems are promptly reported to Gelato Fiasco by email at or voicemail at (207) 956-0680.

If you or your recipient will not be home on the evening of arrival, please make arrangements to have a neighbor open the package and move the gelato to a freezer.

Pints are shippped on Mondays. This means that they leave our facility on Mondays and will arrive to you on a future day. When you place your order, you'll be able to choose the Monday ship date that works best for you or your recipient.

Placing an Order

If you're ordering for multiple recipients, please place one order at a time.

For gelato orders, your ship date and gift recipient's email address are set on the product page. If you need to change either one after ordering, please email us. We will email your gift recipient on the ship date to let them know a perishable package is en route, but we'll let the flavors be a surprise!

For any item, if you wish to include a gift message, there's a box on the first page of the shopping cart.

Refunds and Returns

We cannot accept returns. If you need to make a change to an order after placing it, please contact us immediately to see if the item has already been processed.


You are responsible for confirming that the shipping address you submit is correct.

This is particularly important if you are giving as a gift -- please be sure that the recipient's address is correct!
