The concept of a chocolate truffle box is not very old. The official start of such boxes started in the 1960s within the US. This was the late introduction of chocolate truffles in Western culture. According to historical data, chocolate truffles originated from France. For centuries, the French people have been in absolute love with this dessert. Chocolate Truffle Boxes have become the ideal packaging for all those who are into the Bakery Business. You know, there’s something magical about chocolate. No matter what shape you mold it into, it will always taste delicious and look delicious. But still, there is one significant variant of chocolate that we all love immensely.
Yes, the chocolate truffles.
What exactly are Chocolate Truffle Boxes?
No truffles we are discussing are not the special ones that are variants of edible mushrooms. We are talking about chocolate truffles, which we all love to eat. Probably the most popular one among the chocolate truffles is the French truffles. These are exported worldwide.
Talking about the overall appearance of a truffle, it is a chocolate ball made up of thick chocolate that can be either dark chocolate or white chocolate. Sounds delicious already? They truly are. Our survey reports show that people love these chocolate truffles—time for you to target this market.
Chocolate truffle boxes and their storage
Now we are talking about the real deal. A chocolate truffle box has a huge impact on the overall sales and distribution of the truffles. Remember, guys, and you need to grab the consumer’s attention with the boxes. That’s the only way of boosting your business.
Also, you need to preserve your chocolate truffles appropriately. If you don’t do so, the shelf life of the truffles will be greatly affected, and you will sell practically nothing. Also, try to add some detailing like handout cards or ribbons to the boxes. It helps to build brand awareness.
Can you freeze the box?
According to our survey reports, most of the truffle boxes used to distribute truffles within the market are not good for long-term refrigeration. You can still use them to refrigerate and preserve truffles for a few hours. But not longer than that. To refrigerate truffles, there are two approaches you can take.
The first is to open the truffle packaging and put them all in a plastic container. The plastic container can then be put in the refrigerator, which can preserve the truffles for a very long time. If you want to store truffles individually, you need to wrap them up in plastic wraps and freeze them.
Now, there are two ways to use chocolate truffles as a gift. The first one is buying chocolate truffles from the market. Some brands put some serious effort into the box detailing. You can go with their packaging as well. All you need to do is to put a nice note with it.
The second of doing so is to make truffles at home. This will allow you to introduce a lot of personalization within the truffle recipe. Plus, you can customize the truffle boxes as well this way.
Here are some good designs you should go with when customizing such packaging.
That’s the simplest of the box designs. You can go for chocolate truffles. These custom truffle boxes are super simple in design and can be easily assembled. That’s why the majority of the customized truffle boxes are of this type.
Basic boxes are made up of plain cardboard. In other words, you simply need to fold the pieces into the shape of a box. There will be no imprinting, no detailing of any sort. You can add all that yourself in the end.
Bakery boxes are suitable for occasions where you have to gift chocolate truffles to a large family or a group of friends. For example, you are famous for your chocolate truffle recipe. Now, you plan to make some truffles for your kid’s birthday party. In that case, a sectioned box will be a perfect choice.
The sectioned boxes come with an addition of internal sections. The overall design of the box is almost the same as the basic boxes. The additional accessory you get is the sectioned partitions. You can also move the sections around to make place for bigger truffles.
Now, these boxes are included in the category of laminated and, you know, a bit more decorated boxes. Layered boxes are the ones used for customization most by general consumers. This is because of their already appealing and colorful appearance.
As the name indicates, the layered boxes come with an extra layer of lamination that protects individual truffles. This way, your truffles won’t collide with one another, damaging the shape of the truffles. It’s also a great approach to prevent the bottom melting of the box because of the hot chocolate truffles. Layered boxes are ideal for food packaging.
Last but not least, this is the best box approach you can go with when we talk about chocolate truffles. You see, guys, you never know exactly will the customized boxes be fitting in the truffles perfectly. To avoid all that hassle, you can simply go with large-sized custom boxes.
The large-sized boxes come with a very large room space. Plus, they are quite cheap to make compared to other popular truffle boxes. You can choose the building material for the truffle boxes yourself as well. Make sure that lamination is added to prevent a meltdown of truffles.
We all love chocolate truffles. Plus, considering the overall impact of chocolate truffles on the global market, there is a huge market where you can get a name for your brand. But as a beginner, how can you do that successfully? We have an idea for you; focus on the recipe and chocolate truffle boxes!
