Let me ask you a question.

Why do you send someone a Mishloach Manot box? Besides the custom of buying food gifts for Purim, we give someone we care about a gift he could enjoy. But why not give them something meaningful they will remember for a long time?

That is where this wonderful chocolate photo gift box comes in.

  1. Your photos & memories
  2. Delicious chocolate treats & snacks

There’s no better combination I can think off…

Now you’re probably thinking: “WTF? A pizza box? Are you crazy?”

Well, maybe a little… But stay with me.

Imagine someone handing you a nice little Mishloach Manot gift basket, and you giving a pizza box in return. Little do they know that this isn’t just a regular pizza box…

Once they’ll open the pizza box, they’ll discover a gourmet candy pizza with a milk chocolate crust, popcorn “cheese”, pretzel and chocolate candy pieces (M&M’s style) topping with chocolate drizzled on top.

Now tell me who wouldn’t want to get this delicious kosher treat in a (pizza) box. I’m warning you though, this can get “viral” pretty quick, and soon enough people will ask you where you got it and how you even thought about it. When you do, send em’ to me.
