Like me, but smaller!
No one believes me when I tell them this, so I’m telling the entire world and daring someone to prove me wrong:
No one in the world makes 1″ pale pink truffle cups or 1″ pale yellow truffle cups.
My lemon truffles, in their sad little white cups, are weeping, I tell you. They keep asking to be put in a yellow cup, like a proper lemon truffle should be. And the almond truffles, they would like a pale pink cup that reflects their faintly pink inner flesh. Why must the world deny these poor truffles their rightful clothing?
I consider myself a pretty good Googler, but I’ve been Googling and calling every candy packaging company in the country for a good 4 years now, and I am telling you the truth here, people: there is a worldwide pink and yellow candy cup shortage! What are Obama and McKinney’s stances on this most pressing issue, I wonder? A President who promised to end this shameful deficit of appropriate candy cups would have my vote, for sure.
If you can prove me wrong and find me a good source for cups, I will gladly send you FIVE BOXES OF FREE TRUFFLES, flavor assortments of your choice (8-truffle boxes). This is a $75 value!
-I don’t want foil cups. I can find those. I use them, but I don’t love them.
-They have to be 1″ (I believe the truffle cup industry calls these #4 size).
–They have to be in stock and available to order. I have found several sites that show them, but they have been out of stock for years.
-Don’t even try to play me by sending me links to Valentine’s Day heart cups!
-I know all about the tulip cups. They are cute, and yellow, but you and I both know they are not a truffle cup. They are too big, anyway.
-Don’t even suggest that I make my own unless you have an easy way all worked out that will take less than a minute to make a zillion!
I’ll even get you started with a few search terms to use: candy cups, truffle cups, candy packaging, baking cups.
Go forth and Google!
