Exporting Potables from Canada to the US

I am looking at exporting a French non-alcoholic beverage from Canada to the US. The person who is interested in buying it from me is a small business person, too, and I doubt she has experience importing.
My sticking-point is that the couriers won`t give me a full quote, i.e. they say they can`t tell me what the taxes and duty will be. I have called various government agencies and customs brokers, hopefully I will get some replies, but not yet.
Anyone have experience with this? She has not committed to buy, so I feel I am doing a lot of work with potentially no gain. Not sure if I want to spend another day being on hold, etc, with no payoff.
