What is the next size up from a case of chocolate bars?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (24129points) 1 week ago

Also how much would one save from ordering it? For individual, case lot, ect.

Perferably delivers to Canada.

I would like to be able to have a website for pursuing.

I haven’t chosen brand or type other than milk chocolate.

In most supply chains, you will go from a case, to multiple cases, to a pallet.

Depending on the size and weight of the item, you sometimes will see half-pallets, but that’s unusual.

Keep in mind that if you buy in BIG quantities (like a pallet full), the candy will dry out and become tasteless before you can eat it.

Wonder if there are high import fees for sending chocolate bars into Canada…

I’m sure the next size up is a pallet too, which would have to be delivered to your room by fork-truck, off the back of a large truck. Don’t think it will fit or be able to climb the stairs.

It’s a pallet, and up from that is a truckload.

@elbanditoroso What are some high calorie snacks that can last long enough for me to eat?

Can you still get Jersey Milk bars in Canada, or a better variety of Cadbury’s than we have in the states? If so, you don’t need to think about importing anything.

@Jeruba Yes. Wholesale Club has case of Jersey Milk, and Caramilk, @ $30—$50 a case.

I found a website called that has small to large order’s, that delivers, to Canada.

i would think that a pallet would be the next step. You’ll also need a climate controlled area to store it so they don’t get too hot & melt or turn white. Even if you sell them, it will take some time to get your business up & running.

To make a really bad pun, if the candy goes bad, it will be un-pallet-able…..

You wouldn’t need a forklift for a pallet of chocolate bars. A pallet jack will do the job of getting it off a truck as long as the truck has a loading ramp.

@jonsblond try pulling a pallet jack up a flight of stairs. . . . .

@Tropical_Willie he would have to take the individual boxes off the pallet, obviously. I work with pallets of items every day. Cases are taken off the pallet and taken to their needed location.

Going back to the original question, a case is the largest size you can purchase. Cost is determined by case, not pallet. You’ll have to decide how many cases you want. I worked receiving in grocery for three years and when we checked in pallets of items the cost was still determined by the amount of cases on each pallet.

Right on all counts @jonsblond , should have put a tilde in there.

Costco just had 30 bars on sale for 20 dollars (US dollars), sale for Halloween. That’s about the max I would think a single person might want for their house.

@RedDeerGuy1 Mmmm…I’m going to have to check out I love them and they’re so much better for me – energy and antioxidants. ooooh! Butter toffee pecans!! It’ll be hard staying away from the sweets on the site. :(
