Pie Shipping Testers Needed
It has been a long several years since we have been able to send Kauai Fresh Baked Pies to your door, but we are happy to announce that we are working on testing some new shipping options!
We currently have 3 flavors we are testing:
Paradise Pie: which is Macadamia Nuts, Coconut and fresh Pineapple in a gooey filling, similar to a pecan pie texture.
Macadamia Nut Pie: Ooey gooey, similar to pecan pie filling, but with local macadamia nuts!
Chocolate Coconut Macaroon: Similar in flavor to a macaroon cookie, Toasted coconut on the bottom, chocolate ganache in the middle and a coconut custard on the top
We have been working on this for quite a while, since UPS, our former shipper, is no longer guaranteeing 2 day air shipping. We will now be using USPS Flat Rate Priority Mail.
We baked a bunch of test pies and flew them over to Oahu for lab testing. What the lab results showed us is these three flavors are excellent stored at room temperature for up to 2 1/2 weeks! Yay! That means we can send them to you flat rate, which is 3-5 day shipping, and you still have nearly 2 weeks to enjoy! It also means even if the mailman misplaces your pie for a few days, you will still have plenty of time to enjoy it!
What is also means….is once we finish testing, and are ready to place orders you will need to PLAN AHEAD and consider the length of time USPS Flat Rate shipping takes. We will not be able to refund for delays of USPS. So if you are going to plan for a special occasion, the sooner you order the better.
It also means, as I am sure you know….that there could possibly be some damage to the pies in transit. Each pie will be individually vacuum sealed to help protect it, but they will be roaming wild in their boxes, with some small padding, so a little cracked crust won’t be grounds for a refund. Also, USPS does not guarantee food items, so when placing an order, there will be a little risk involved, as if it is delayed, they will refund your shipping cost, but not the cost of the pie itself. It is not the perfect solution to our shipping woes, but it is a temporary step forward!
Here is how testing volunteering will work…
We need volunteers!
If you would like to volunteer, please know there will be homework! Volunteers will be asked to make a $50 refundable deposit via Paypal. Once your homework is returned, you will receive a full refund.
If you would like to volunteer, please email us at Info@RightSlice.com with the following info:
Name and Shipping Address, as well as Email and Phone Number
Last time you visited our shop.
The first time you met our fearless leader, Sandy.
Your favorite Right Slice pie flavor.
Why we should choose you as a taste tester.
Your favorite color.
We will randomly be choosing volunteers throughout the next few weeks and will contact you IF you are chosen. Please do not call the bakery to ask if you have been chosen. We are still running short staffed and don’t have time for that. It is a sure way to get put at the bottom of the list. lol
We are so excited to move back towards shipping and are excited to hear what our testers have to say! Test shipments will begin in the next week or two.
