Confection Boxes

13 posts in this topic

Does anyone know of places I can get boxes for chocolates/confections, without having them custom made? I'm not looking for your average box, maybe something with a little more creativity behind them. Thanks!

Have you examined Kroese? He has some very nice boxes. Check out the thread where I used one of his more unusual boxes:

http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?showto...91602&hl=kroese

and here is his website:

http://www.kroese-exclusief.com/

You have to sign up in order to see the catalog, but it is free and worth the bother. Ordering is also easy and shipment prompt.

Now those boxes are more on track with what I'm looking for. I trued to create an account, but how long does it take for your account to be active? How long does it usually take to get your boxes shipped here in the States? By the way, thanks.

Rogier (the President of the company) will give you an account as soon as he knows you want one. (He's amazingly helpful. And, shipping to the US is about one to two weeks. I cannot recommend his product more...it's FANTASTIC.

Believe it or not, I just picked up some at Cost Plus over the weekend. They aren't fancy, just come in gold, silver and red. If you're interested, I found them by the kitchen section of the store.

Re opening an account with Kroese, I applied on line a couple of days ago and he phoned me back within two hours to ask a few questions and activate the account. He was really helpful asking what sort of product I was working with and what I was currently using.

I wish I had known about them before (saw their name here on egullet last week) I ordered my first set of boxes from a supplier here in the UK. Kroese boxes are much more eye appealing. I have to use what I have bought first but will definitley use them as soon I can justify buying more boxes.

For those looking for Kroese on the web these days, he contacted me today to let us know that his English-language website is now www.kroese-exclusive-packaging.com.

Thanks Chris - it's been a while since I looked at their site.  Lots of nice stuff and the website is much easier to navigate than before.

    • Alcohol Infused Cough Drops
      By LizD518
      I saw a recipe on facebook today for making your own cough drops.  It was a basic hard candy recipe of sugar (and water) with a little honey, lemon, ground ginger & clove - cooked to hard crack, made into droplets on a silpat or parchment and left to cool/harden, then tossed in powdered sugar.  I'd like to doctor it up a bit and could use a little help.  Would it be possible to add a little whiskey into the mix?  Also, if I wanted to steep fresh ginger / clove / etc, what would be the best way to do so?  I was thinking using the water - even though it will all boil off I could steep the flavorings in that before adding it to the sugar.  Finally, what would be the best way to store them so they don't start to soften?  
    • UHT cream, Invert sugar and ganache shelf life
      By martin0642
      Hi all - i've been trying to find out how using UHT cream and Invert sugar can help with shelf life of ganache (for dipped or molded chocolates). I understand the principles by which invert sugar helps and obviously, having a sterilised cream can make a difference.
       
      What i'm struggling with is being able to work out roughly how much the use of these ingredients would extend shelf life. Another week? Two? I understand the recipe makes a difference but for arguments sake, lets say a 2:1 Milk chocolate to cream ration with 30% (by weight of cream)  glucose syrup added and....20% (by weight of cream) invert sugar added.
       
      ANy pointers?
    • Storing Molded Chocolates
      By RuthWells
      I know the gold standard for storing molded chocolate bon bons is to vacuum-pack lightly, then freeze.  Any suggestions for an overly-enthusiastic home chocolatier with an abundance of inventory and no vacuum sealer?  My local coffe shop is selling my wares, but not as quickly as I've been producing them!
    • Lumette, handcrafted confections by Ewald Notter
      By pastrygirl
      Does anyone here know what the story is with Lumette?  I was just at a chocolate event and a local caterer was featuring these chocolates.  I doubt that Ewald Notter is working for a caterer in Seattle, so is this a wholesale line he's doing?  The website seems to be just a landing page for now.  Just curious, it was odd to see the name at a local event.
