Shipping cookies, I am not happy with USPS - Page 2

post #16 of 18
I went to UPS to ship cookies and told the girl to put a fragile sticker on the package. She told me that it is best not to because the people that put them on the truck with handle these packages really rough because it says fragile. They do this for laughs. I did not think this was funny. I carefully packed 60 cookies for a baby shower and 22 of them were broken. I was so mad and embarressed. Good thing I sent xtra and the person that received them did say I packed them really well and she did not see any other way I could have packed them. I get the best results when they are not in the individual bags and I use a tin can to put them in and use newspaper etc. around the can.

I would just order some cookies from a reputable company and see how they arrive to you. Examine the packaging and take note of what they charge. Good Luck

My cookies arrived with two broken. The two broken had a fragile design (tennis racket). I added some extra. I kind of expect that would happen. I packed them box in the box, with bubble wrap around, and each cookie was wrapped as well. In every shipment some of my cookies happened to broke. I will try UPS next time and will see if this is matter of my packing, or handling the shipment of the carrier.??
