 That was a very detailed post with far too much painful, extraneous information. I'm  not sure what you're telling us, but my heart goes out to you. You asked what we think you should do.

If anyone asks for a box you can say, "Sorry, not for samples, but if you would like to...
 Did you know that NY has a cottage food law and you can get a Home Processor permit? 
 Do you have a retail store? If so, do you give out samples?
