Clamshell Bakery Containers???

Does anyone know where I could buy a bunch of those plastic clamshell containers bakeries use to put their cookies in?

I am making 30 something dozen cookies and I want nice durable packaging for them. I do not want to use bakery boxes, I've done this before and one dozen cookies just looks too small in them. PLastic treat bags are not proffessional enough looking for what I need them for.

I really need to get my hands on those clamshell things!! Help!!

You might find them at Costco or Sams.

My sister, who is like Mrs. Christmas Kringle, used to get her plastic boxes at CostCo. I think she now uses an online place called Plastic Container City. Both places sell them in huge quantities though. :/

Maybe a baker's supply store in your area? Or you may call up your local supermarket and see if you can simply purchase the number you need from their bakery.

Find a store or restaurant that uses what you want to use and ask to buy some from them.
