Where can I find the ingredient and nutritional information for your products?

Our nutritional information can be found here

How long will my product retain its quality and freshness?

Our products are all natural which means they do not contain artificial ingredients or preservatives. Therefore, they should be enjoyed within 2 weeks of receipt or kept frozen for future consumption. The frozen shelf life of all of our products is at least 6 months. Unless they are to be consumed right away, it's always a good idea to store them frozen. Freezing and thawing (even a few times) will not affect the quality.

Is there a detailed ingredient list for those with allergies?

Our nutritional information can be found here. Contact us at for per flavor allergen statements. 

Do your products contain nuts?

Currently, we are using peanuts and tree nuts in some of our treats. We take measures to ensure that there is no cross contamination of ingredients; however given the presence of nuts in our bakery there is always a chance that nut-free products could come into contact with nuts and/or their by-products. If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail a Customer Service Representative at or 708-488-0800

Residential addresses typically do not require a signature.

UPS will make three delivery attempts before returning the package to Athena’s Silverland Desserts. UPS will leave a note on the door following each delivery attempt. Business addresses do require a signature, but not necessarily from the recipient whose name is on the box. Anyone in the building is able to sign for the package.

Yes! The web site will ask for you to do just that. Athena’s Silverland Desserts will ensure that your goodies are baked and shipped in time to arrive by your chosen date.
