To place an order for shipping in the United States, please call Schmidt Bakery directly, 812-934-4501.
We DO NOT ACCEPT ORDERS ONLINE! Yes, I know this is an inconvenience, but we don't want anyone to miss out on this annual treat, from delay of message or junk mail horrors. Yes, sometimes those emails don't reach us, and that makes us sad. So, to take care of that, do the OLD STYLE and call in your order. It's safer for payment information anyways. No hackers involved!
Our Shipping day is on Tuesday after the crazy weekend. We have to wait to ship them out, because of the post office being closed on Sunday, and Monday (President's Day). A flat rate shipping box will get them to their destination.
We Suggest a quick warm-up in the microwave when ready to eat. Fresh is still the best, but this comes in a close 2nd if it's the only way to get them.
Some have shared with us how they eat a cherry thing-a-ling, they warm it up, add a dollop of ice cream and make it like a "Cherry Pie A la mode" YUMMY!
DO THEY FREEZE?
Absolutely. As with anything, we suggest putting them in freezer ziploc bags, or some type of sealable bag, that will protect them from "freezer burn". Don't waste those delicious treats! When ready to eat, thaw briefly, or just throw it in the microwave to re-warm and soften up. Keep them for the other 11 months we don't sell them!! Happy Eating.
This annual treat was started back in the early 70's and has become an amazing tradition in our quaint little hometown bakery. We used to only make them on Sundays back then. We got to a point where were selling out, we had to add a second day, and then a third, and now a 4th. Last year, 2017, we made over 80,000 of them and sent them all over the United States on the 5th day, which is our Shipping day (see above).
