How much does shipping cost?

The shipping cost is determined by the weight of the order, the distance the order has to be shipped and the shipping method. Ground shipping is the least expensive. Shipping is cheaper when several items are ordered at the same time. It cost about as much to ship 1 quart of snow cone syrup as it does to ship 6 quarts.
