Confections packaging


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks -

 

I'm knee-deep in shipping holiday bonbon packages, and have gotten the feedback that the individual pieces are turning over during the shipping process. Not great!  I know the high-end retailers have custom boxes and trays made, I get mine from gogo pak and make my own sleeves for the boxes. I use this box, a pad, a piece of paper and sticker to secure them,  and this tray, which I now see has a little room at the top, for the movement. Does anyone have any tips to prevent this, or have any ideas as to where to find inexpensive yet attractive packaging where this would not happen?

 

Thanks so much!

Jen

I have had the same issue, so I add waxed paper (or similar flexible paper or bubble wrap will work) between the top of the chocolates and the pad.  Chocolates are sturdier than they look, so I make sure I fill up the space as much as possible so that there is as little wiggle room for them as possible.

aspecialtybox.com has bon-bon trays with a clear protective cover that fits right over the top of the bon bons.  I've used them in the past for the spheres, but not all that practical if you're doing different shapes.  Worth checking out though.

A 'balanced diet' means chocolate in BOTH hands. :biggrin:

@jim D. Thanks so much for that tip!  It works like a charm!  I'm trying to figure out a way to make it look attractive, but it definitely fixes the issue. Thanks!

 

You could get colored tissue paper, which might look a bit better.  As you said you include a pad, which I do as well, I assume people will realize the extra paper is for protective reasons only and probably throw it away.
