Boxes for Chocolates

4 posts in this topic

I have seen Nakazawa (available in the U.S. from Unger Co. in Cleveland) mentioned as a good source for boxes for chocolates, and they certainly have some very nice looking ones. Unfortunately 200 appears to be the smallest lot in which these are sold, and I am looking for smaller amounts of various sizes. Can anyone suggest other sources?

There are lots of places that sell smaller quantities: US Box, Box and WRap, Bags and Bows, Nashville Wrapes, Glerup Revere.

As Cassie says, lots of places that sell smaller quantities. Unfortunately, the price per box seems to go way up when you purchase in small quantities. Purchasing from package nakazawa seems to be the first price break point, next price break point appears to be when you by a few thousand and go the custom set up box route.

Here are a few other places that sell smaller quantities:

- www.sweetpackaging.com

- www.aspecialtybox.com

- www.modpac.com

      OK, I know this is sweating the small stuff, but I'm wondering what you see ...
      Is this rabbit
      holding an egg, or is the oval a fuzzy underbelly?

      At least in Europe comercial chocolate tablets are getting thinner. Usually 6mm thick and of course bigger in area.
      But I don't manage to find that kind of molds at manufacturer's sites (80 or 100g). Or at least choice is very limited.
      Why? Maybe too thin for manual unmolding? Or they just use bigger molds and fill partially?

      I have a box of truffle shells that were not stored properly and have bloomed. If I fill and dip them in tempered chocolate, will the newly dipped chocolate bloom due to the layer underneath it, or will the outer layer seal the under layer and keep them looking nice?

      Good morning!
      Long story short: I am doing a spin off the coconut/chocolate/almond candy (almond joy), and trying to create a specific shape out of the almond.  My hands are cramped after a couple dozen failed attempts whittling roasted almonds, so now I'd like to try a different approach, and instead, create some kind of sub-candy or cookie with roasted almonds that I can put into a mold or use a mini cookie cutter.  I'm fairly new to sweets, my knowledge in this area is pretty slim.  Some ideas so far, I don't like any, but it might help turn some gears:
      1. dusting almond over a stencil, but that's not enough almond nor crunchy enough
      2. almond brittle, but that's too hard and sweet, I'd like it more of a soft crunch, and bringing the almond flavor forward
      3. meringue with almonds (sort of macaron-ish), however, weather has been humid and raining here, and I'm ending up with a gooey mess instead of that soft crunch
      In addition to having almond-forward taste and soft crunch texture, it'd be fun to explore something modernish - I have a accumulated a few tools and ingredients not customarily found in homes.
      There are dietary considerations I will have to account for, however, no need to worry about that now, I am just looking for ideas and a place to take it from there
      Thank you for your time in reading!
