Frequently Asked Questions

Select a question below to find the answer

Why Is Shipping So Expensive?

All products require refrigeration from the moment they are prepared. This means shipping costs include regular shipping and handling, plus the cost of the cold-pack shipping box and ice pack. This way, even if you live across the country your package will arrive cold.

Why do you use Xanthan Gum?

Xantham gum is a natural stabilizer that extends the shelf life of our product by allowing the dairy to not separate as fast as it normally would. It is not a preservative.


Are any of our products vegan?

No, all of our products are made with cage-free egg yolks so none are vegan. We do have one dairy-free product made with coconut milk.

What makes Cosmo’s Spicy Ranch spicy?

Carrageenan is added by our dairy company into our buttermilk, not by us personally. It is a natural stabilizer and not a preservative.

We only ship out on Monday’s! Why?

After two years of shipping our homemade ranch products, we have found that the best delivery method is to ship out only on Monday’s. That way, all deliveries, no matter the location in the USA, arrive before the weekend. If they go into the weekend then they sit in a Fed Ex warehouse where they loose time, freshness and temperature. Please feel free to email us if you have any specific requests or questions about your order!
