Apparently the supplier read the reviews about packaging
on January 9, 2012
I received my 70 cup sampler pack, but had low expectations about the packaging and concern about the expiration date on the cups. Looks like whoever makes these packs read up on the reviews. My cups arrived in a beautiful box with a flip top and each cup nestled in its own little 'cell'. Beautifully packaged and absolutely ideal for gifting.
The 70 cups were unique, although there was more decaf than I need at least there werent 15 different french roasts and 15 different hazelnuts! I sampled about 10 expiration dates and they were all in the future, from 2-5 months away. I have heard about some problems with many k-cup manufacturers giving incentives to their production folks for how many they turned out, but someone forgot the sales incentive because they made way more than have sold, so many places allegedly have expired or nearly expired cups. Glad to see that wasnt a problem here. I found at least six coffee's I havent tried yet (and I've had a LOT of different k-cups) but wanted to before buying a big box of them.
Very pleased with the purchase.
Edit: I've pretty much given up on Crazy Cups variety boxes at this point. While I was happy with them at first when I wrote the original review, my last order for a summer variety had christmas cups in it, and the most recent 70 pack was about half decaf and the grove square powdered cups. Guys, most people don't drink any decaf, let alone in these volumes and the powdered stuff not only clogs the nozzles on the brewer, you can get a packaged powdered coffee/hot cocoa/whatever for a lot less money and the quality is better in the packages. Most of the powdered cups have nasty oils in them and fake sweeteners. Ick.
So since these guys aren't focused on delivering a quality product, at these prices I can just buy a bunch of regular variety packs without the decaf and powdered cups and get a better price per cup.
