Chocolate Boxes - want to share an order?

Hope this isn't too off topic or inappropriate.

To get to the point, I would like to find someone that wants to "share" an order of chocolate boxes. The order I am considering is 250 one-piece boxes from U-Line (www.uline.com) for ~$60USD. These boxes fold up easily and hold 1/2LB of candy. I don't want/need 250 but buying them at $1 each from the local art supply store is more than I am willing to pay for something I plan to use often.

The great thing about this company is that I filled out an inquiry form on line and said that I made chocolate candy as a hobby and am interested in a couple of different candy boxes they offer and would they please send me a sample of each. Well, within minutes I had an email indicating that samples would be shipped out that day UPS. Great service! Very helpful. I received four samples of different boxes - 1/2 LB and 1LB fold-up and two-piece. I like the smaller fold up as it will be plenty big and it was easy to put together.

OK, let me know if you are interested. I can send you pictures if you want.

Best,

Michael

Hi Michael:

You might also try Mod-Pac, they have a lot of good stock packaging and pretty small minimum orders.

BTW, I'm also from Solana Beach! Small world isn't it?

The Revere Group packs candy boxes in groups of 25 or 50.

but they do require a minimum purchase...which might put the opening poster in the same situation as with u-line

Oh, good to know. I've only bought a few things from them, both times stopping by their showroom in Seattle, they are probably a little more lenient when you are there in person paying cash or just looking for samples.

Hello all,

I found another place that will sell "Candy Tuck Top Boxes" for only $0.17 USD each in small quantities of 100 and is in LA, close to me so shipping will be relatively inexpensive. They are at papermart.com. They do not send out samples but they are really cheap so even the boxes don't work out I won't be out that much $$$

Thanks for all the info and replies! Once I get an order I will post a reply on quality, ease of assembly, etc.

Happy Chocolating!

Michael

      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers

      I couldn't think of a better way to word that! 
       
      I'm experimenting with adding a very small amount of cocoa butter decoration onto bars I'm making and am not sure whether I should heat the moulds up with a hair dryer as I would for completely bare moulds or just abandoning this step. I would avoid blowing directly onto where the cocoa butter is as much as possible. Thoughts?
