    Sample bags - how many pieces..

    Post  Michelle H on Wed Feb 22, 2012 9:20 am

    Seeing as someone asked I thought I would answer. Smile

    As I mentioned elsewhere, the sample bags are done on weight so there may not always be the same number in each. The answers are approximate cos I don't have them in front of me. Smile

    Black magic - 7 or 8??
    Baby baby 12-13
    Black velvet - over 20

    Berrycream dreams - 8
    Berry mix 12-14
    Brown babies 12-14
    Choc berries 12-14
    Chewy Louie - 12?
    Clingers 12?
    Chocolate cashews - 10-14
    Choc wigglies - 10-12
    Coconut magic - 14 -18
    Dark berry bites over 20
    Eskimos - 9-10
    Maltilicious - 12-14
    Milk poppers - 15-18
    Milk black forest - 25+
    Marble drops - 0ver 30
    Milk coffee beans - over 20
    Milk choc pretzels - 8 -12
    Milky stumpies - over 20
    Milkmans specials 11
    Monkey bites - 13
    Pink perfection - 18-20
    Pineapple paradise - 10
    Rainbow gems - 10+
    Strawberry dreams - 12
    Spearmint specials - 12
    Tropical magic - 10
    White heaven - 12-14
    White berrycream - 8
    White poppers - 15+
    White berry bites - over 20
    superspots - 5-6
    choc orange suckers - 8-10
    caramoo's - 8-10
    stripey squares - 5-8
    mandarin madness - 6-10 (depends on the supplier)
    very cherry bites - 6-8
    nutty delight - 8-12 depends on size, can be more like coconut magic
    pink heaven - 6
    supersoft black/supersoft red - 4-6 (are being deleted from sampling I think)

    If anyone wants to correct me with any, feel free. Smile

    i always take 5 samples for them to try. i normally choose with amount of people attending but if the hosts asks for a certain on then i will take that with me and usually it is something that is not a sample product but i have never charged my hosts for any samples. i wasn't sure we were allowed to do that. thanks for letting us know that info Michelle. I am off to do a party now and using all full size bags as there is 30 people attending (we will see how many actually turn up), but hoping it is a good party for my first one back this year.

    Not sure if we are supposed to charge for extra samples but Megan knows I do it and hasn't said anything! lol The $3 is pretty much how much we pay anyway so it isn't selling for profit. Especially when I usually only charge the $3 once even if I use 2 bags.

    I'm not happy with the sample bags at the moment. None of them are labelled and its impossable to tell what product is in what bag, I hate having to cut into samples to work out what is what. confused

    The sample bags have never been labelled. They only do it when two products look alike. ie the black forest jellies and the coffee beans.

    Just compare the shape with full size bags or order specific things and write on the bag what it is. I do with clingers because some times they can look a bit like baby baby.

    If at a party, make a joke of it. I did once with the baby baby/clingers. Said it was one or could be the other (host didn't mind want samples were used) and everyone got a laugh out of it. Smile

    I tend to put labels on my samples when I get them. One to make sure I know what they are and Two I put a date to ensure i am rotating my stock.

    Is there a flyer with a list of all the samples, as I didn't realise the list was so long and have only given my first 3 hostess a choice of 21 varieties. I have only just found all the other samples on the Purchase order. Embarassed

    No there is not a list. I copied it from the PO and put it in a word doc. I also took off products I didn't want to offer such as super spots (only 5 to a bag and it is a boring freckle), pink heaven (5 in bag and doesn't travel well), rainbow gems - it is only a smartie! choc orange suckers - again, just a giant jaffa. Wink

    As i said in another thread, I have a party menu which says to pick out five samples and to email/call me at least 2 weeks before the party. That way I have time to play a regular order, otherwise I would have to do express and it works out far to costly with the $20 postage.

    If they aren't too fussed I just ask what they don't like and then take along around 10 bags and let them pick their 5 on the day. (when I joined we were required to offer 5 samples so I still do, even though the new rule is 4-6)
