 Which do you prefer to buy and why: the tarts in the bag or the tarts in the plastic cups?

Funny you should ask :) I was just deciding to buy some tarts and saw some in the little plastic cups as well as in the bag.

My preference - loose in the bag. I don't want to have to mess with little cups and waste. Besides that I like to melt the same scent in a couple of rooms so my house has a consistent fragrance throughout and piddling with little cups is not my idea of fun.

Hope this helps.


P.S. Haven't chatted in a while. Hope you are well.

Hi Patti,

The tarts in the bag with a homespun tie is a bit warmer touch than the plastic cups.

I have never bought the tarts in the plastic cups in the prim country stores or craft shows.

Have a fun Autumn Day !

In the bag. I just bought some in the plastic cups and had a hard time getting the tart out so I let it melt a little and then tried to pop it out and wax squirted all over!

Hi Patti!
In the bag. Plastic cups make me think "Dollar Store" for some reason. I think the bag makes a much better presentation. Actually, anything in a cellophane bag tied with homespun,makes me want to buy it!

Hi Patti-
I'm with the rest of them...tarts in the bag! Are you going to be selling them on your website? I Live to far away to come to your shop, Lol!
Have a wonderful weekend!

I am going to agree with the majority here, bagged is better. I also agree that those cups look dollar store like and makes me think of condiments and not tarts. I think in the bag with a nice homespun tie and tag is perfect!

Another vote for bagged here! I have both, and I prefer the bag because I don't like trying to get the tart out of the plastic cup.

I recycle both the cups and the plastic bag. But with the cups, it does seem more wasteful because the cups take longer to break down in the landfill than a bag does. (I think about stuff like this because I know not everyone recycles.)

I also agree with the dollar store comments. It may be convenient and cheaper to make them in cups, but I prefer handmade touches when I buy things. If I want cheap I can buy the clam-shell melts walmart now sells by Better Homes. (I've bought some to try and I don't like them. I also think they take away from homemade sellers!)

Anyway, Happy October! I hope you have a nice weekend. :)

Definitely bag - cup version isn't available where I get my tarts from, but they just don't look convenient - I've also bought ones in bigger cake form where you break chunks off - didn't like that either because I was always guessing at what size chunk to break off and it was messy! Happy weekend! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

In a bag with a homespun tie is better. I agree that the plastic cups look like something one would get in a $ store

Ditto on all of the above. =]

In the bag, I like the homespun touch with the rag tie too.
