For your Rustic Wedding favors - try Dell Cove Spice Co.'s BBQ dry rub wedding favors and dip mixes for your personalized guest gifts. All natural, no MSG or chemical fillers, our hand-crafted spice blends are packaged in food-grade clear cones.

Depending on the weight of the spices, each favor comes with up to 3 ounces of spices. The cones are 1.5 inch square at the top, and 6 inches in length.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a minimum of 10 favors and you can order as many listings as you need!

We use organic spices when available. You can choose one of our popular lines, or we can customize a blend for you. Our current seasoning blends are:

- Blackened Cajun Seasoning: Another staple in our kitchen, this has all of the heat of the Deep South - without the burn. If you haven't had this on steak and grilled shrimp, you haven't lived.

- Classic Steak Seasoning: our take on the classic, with three different types of peppers, coriander, coarse grain Himalayan sea salt and other spices. Makes a terrific crust on a thick steak.

- Italian Tuscany BBQ Rub: an organic blend of basil, oregano, roasted red peppers and garlic and other spices. Our go-to blend for chicken and pork.

- Jamaican Jerk Chicken: a blend of heat and sweet that will have you loving the flavor and heat of Scotch bonnet chiles. Created with a mix of organic spices, our jerk rub can be used as a dry spice rub on your chicken or turned into a wet BBQ paste.

- French Provencal Spice Rub: a spice rub that's great on seafood, chicken or vegetables, with a mix of savory, lavender, rosemary and other spices.

- Herbed Olive Oil Bread Dip: a taste of Tuscany that is sure to impress, our spice mix is a blend of organic Italian spices and Sel de Mer. Add balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, and enjoy!

- Lemon Pepper: A blend of fresh cracked Tellicherry pepper, sea salt and citrus zests that have been ground super fine. Terrific on grilled fish.

- Louisiana Shrimp Boil: a mouth-watering blend of cayenne pepper, basil, oregano, coarse ground French Sel de Mer and some secret ingredients that will have them coming back for a second helping.

- Memphis Ribs Rub: For those who like their ribs "dry," and enjoy a slow-smoked process, this is the rub for you.

- Parmesan Peppered Olive Oil Bread Dip: a dip with some bite that has become a hit among our family and friends, this mix is made with a blend of parmesan cheese powder and organic basil, thyme, sea salt, peppers and other spices. Dip thick, crusty Italian bread into olive out, then into our spice dip mix and savor.

- Rosemary & Roasted Garlic Olive Oil Bread Dip: a savory delight that turns regular olive oil into a fantastic bread dip. Our dip blend is a mix of organic rosemary, roasted garlic-infused sea salt, organic basil, onion flakes and other spices. Add to olive oil, stir and serve!

- Rustic Wedding Spice Blend (also known as our Beer-Can Chicken Spice Rub): our spice blend for making beer-can chicken - plus recipe – has just enough heat and a few extra (secret) culinary touches.

- Southwest Chipotle Meat Rub and Dip Mix: a spicy blend of chipotle peppers, onion, garlic and spices to provide authentic southwest flavor.

- Spiced Grilled Fruit Rub: a sweet and savory mix of demerara sugar, all spice, cinnamon and other spices that, when is heavenly when you brush it on fruit and pop the fruit on the BBQ grill. Not too sweet, not too spicy - just the best of both!

- Tour of India: savory layers of turmeric, bay leaves, coriander, peppers, ginger and other organic spices - and directions for how to toast and grind the spices, to make your own curry powder.

Each favor comes with one favor filled with one of our spice mixes; a gift tag with a customized design on front; an ingredient list; and a suggested recipe on the back.

Multiple layers of spices - and other decorations, such as feathers, flowers and other elements - are available in custom orders at an additional fee. Local pick-up in Chicago only.

Add the number of favors you need to your cart, select your spice blend and check out. Then, contact us via Etsy convo or by email at dellcovespice [!at] gmail.com and let's talk. We will need the following information to create your favors:

* Event colors
* Recipe type for the tag (beef, chicken, pork or vegetarian for rubs; olive oil bread dip or cream-based dip for the dip mixes)
* Details of what you want the tag to say
* An email address you check frequently, where we will send you the proof of your tag

Once the favor tag design is approved by you, we will print out the tags and begin making your spice blend to order.

ALLERGIES: Some of these blends include milk products and our kitchen does have tree nut and legume products in it. Please convo us if you have food allergy concerns.

MULTIPLE SPICE BLENDS: Often, clients opt to offer a variety of different spice mixes as favors. We are happy to accommodate such requests. Please note: There is a minimum of 10 favors per spice variety.

PRODUCTION SCHEDULE: Please plan accordingly. Our production schedule ranges from 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the time of year. The more time we have to work on your favors, the less stress for you. And on the plus side? You can order these favors in advance and they will store beautifully.

RUSH ORDERS: We do offer rush services for an additional 25% fee on the price of the favors. Please note that expedited shipping will also cost more.

DISCOUNTS: Given current food prices and expense of the ingredients we use, our price breaks begin at 200 favors. We need at least that many favors in one order, in order to get a price break from the farmers and spice companies we work with to get ingredients, as well as the printer we use for the tags. At orders of that size and larger, we offer a variety of discounts. Please contact us to get more details!

LAYERED SPICE FAVORS: Given how much jostling can happen with shipping favors, the layered spice favors are only available for local pick-up in Chicago. Please contact us to make arrangements for local pick-up or delivery.

Please note: Favors are one of a kind. Your order may or may not end up looking like the photographs, as each order is unique.

Frequently asked questions about dellcovespices

Many of our product listings allow customers to personalize their order by picking from a long list of flavors or seasoning varieties. If you say you want to pick your flavors - but don't give us that information - we will attempt to contact you via Etsy's convo system and through the email address listed on the invoice. If we don't hear back from you within 7 calendar days after the order was placed, we will cancel and refund you that portion of your order.
If you need your order shipped out the same day - and we have the ability and ingredients to fill your order - we're happy to do so. We charge a flat $25 rush fee per rush order.

Additional fees apply if you would like expedited shipping via USPS Express Mail or Federal Express. Please contact us about setting up a custom listing for this service.
Our Christmas rush starts in early November and continues through late December. During this period, we do our best to get products out as quickly as possible. However, it can take TWO (2) weeks or more for orders to be filled.

During these rush times, we regularly update our shop announcement and Facebook page - http://www.facebook.com/dellcovespices - for shipping updates.
1. Verify the shipping address on your invoice is correct.
2. Look around the delivery location for a notice of attempted delivery. (Is there a sheet of paper on your door or inside your mailbox?)
3. Look around the delivery location for your package. (Was the package left near your back door? In the front bushes?)
4. Check with neighbors and others at the delivery location, to see if someone else accepted the delivery. (This does happen. Shocking, but true!)
5. Contact your local post office, to see if they are holding the package. (The post office may not have been able to delivery the order for some reason.)
6. Wait 48 hours. Why? Packages can show as delivered via USPS, but still actually be in transit.
7. Contact us so we can help!
You will need to go to your local post office branch to pick up your package. If you don't pick up your package from the post office, then USPS will return the order to us after a period of time. If your package is returned to us with a return authorization, then we will assume you have refused delivery. If it was a food product(s) you ordered, the product(s) will be destroyed due to concerns over food safety.
We are happy to replace your order if a package arrives extremely damaged, free of charge. Just take photos of the damaged package, email them to us at dellcovespice [!at] gmail.com and let us know what happened. We want you and your taste buds to be happy with your purchase!
Returns are accepted if the product(s) is in its original packaging and has not been used, opened or damaged - and comes with proof of purchase, such as a copy of your invoice that we sent with your order. Buyers are responsible for shipping charges to return the product(s) to us. Custom orders, such as wedding favors, are non-refundable purchases.

We must receive the product(s) within 21 calendar days after the package has been delivered, according to the delivery tracker. After that point, due to the nature of food products, we cannot accept returns.
Contact us by email - at dellcovespice [!at] gmail.com - to make arrangements for a return, as return authorizations are required. Returns are void if the product arrives back to us damaged. (We suggest shipping products back via USPS Priority Mail - postal insurance comes automatically!)

Finally, mail the package to:
Dell Cove Spice Co.
Attn: David Beets
4302-A N. Pulaski Road
Chicago, IL 60641

Once we have received your return, and inspected the products, we will email you to let you know your return has arrived.

You have two options for a refund:
Option #1: Refund the amount of the original purchase, minus the original shipping fee.
Option #2: Store credit for the full amount of the original order.
Wholesale orders are always welcome and we love working with brick and mortar shops! Please send us an email at dellcovespice@gmail.com with your business information and any questions, and we look forward to working with you.
