We ship all our tamales frozen, with dry ice or ice packs, in an insulated container to ensure they arrive at their destination below 44 degrees. We use either Fed Ex or UPS to ensure they arrive in 3 days or less.
Your tamales are packed frozen to below zero degrees, and shipped with dry ice or ice packs in an insulated container. When they arrive any dry ice used will likely have sublimated during travel. If your tamales are not frozen solid, there are a couple ways to determine if they are edible. It is normal for the outer masa to begin defrosting and be soft to the touch, however the center of the tamale should be below 44 degrees. If you do not have the ability to temp the tamale, the center should be cold. If you have any questions, give us a call (520) 398-6282
