Shipping Doughballs With Ice Packs Y/N?
« on: July 13, 2021, 08:18:23 PM »
Is this just wishful thinking? Will a doughball survive shipping if insulated with just a few ice packs? Has anyone tried this? Has anyone been successful? Please advise. Thank you.

Dough balls sell cheap and I don't see how you could make money with shipping them?

I order my shredded cheese from Pennsylvania and when it gets to New Mexico it is partially thawed.
It is shipped in a Styrofoam container and has ice packs inside.

The Goldbelly outfit ships frozen food items, including pizzas, all around the country. When I went to their website at https://www.goldbelly.com/, I saw a lot of articles about Goldbelly, some of which mentioned that dry ice (a solid form of carbon dioxide) along with coolers are used to keep items like ice cream solid. And they look for shippers who can ship items overnight (see, for example, https://www.cnbc.com/2020/11/16/momofuku-joins-goldbelly-as-delivery-service-sees-covid-pandemic-boom.html). Another article mentioned shipping frozen meat patties across the country.

Of course, cost can be a major component of a plan to ship frozen food items across the country, even doughballs (I assume frozen, not fresh).

Goldbelly is very selective with who they work with.  You have to be a fairly big name.  I contacted them during the pandemic and never heard back.
