Help & FAQ


When should I order by to receive my package by Christmas?

Order with priority shipping by Tuesday, Dec. 19 to receive by Christmas. 

We'll continue shipping orders out until Friday, Dec. 22 and all orders made after Dec. 22 will be shipped out in the new year.

When can I expect to receive my Rooted Fare package? 

During the holiday season, we ship out almost every day.

Non-holiday times, we generally ship orders out every Tuesday and Friday, as we make our spread in small-batches (and with love) to make sure we achieve the best flavor + quality possible! You can expect to receive your package in 2-5 days after the order ships, but shipping has become more unpredictable, so please expect shipping delays.

Who made the recipe?

Co-founder Ashley created this one-of-a-kind spread based on her grandma's award-winning recipe for glutinous rice balls filled with a sweet, luscious black sesame filling. We loved the OG but we like to think we've created something even more delicious that be put on anything and enjoyed anywhere.

Rooted Fare

How are Rooted Fare products different from other spread brands out there?

What sets us apart is we're proudly Chinese American. We're a food brand that hopes to inspire all people, especially 2nd generation Chinese Americans, to embrace the messiness and joy of figuring out how and where we belong.

We are not trying to make food exactly like grandpa's and mom's, we're making something that we can call ours, which tastes both familiar and new. Learn more on our Mission page.
