Okay so Im seriously in love with the idea of handing out 1/2 pints of white milk and cookies as favors. Problem is…I can’t seem to locate these precious little cartons of white goodness!!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might be able to buy some either in person (in W Central Florida) or online?? I’ve tried Sams and Costco and googling and have come up empty. Well Sams carries cases, but not in my area!! Ugh!

They sell little bottles in grocery stores. You could put your own label on them. You might have to try a food service company like Cisco or Aramark for those little milk cartons.

What about checking with a school district? They may be able to tell you their supplier.

I know that Sysco and US Foods both carry them as I’ve dealt with both at my job. I would say contact your Reception venue and find out if they will order them for you. Chances are, they’ll be super cheap ordering through a big distributor and then they’ll already be at your reception venue. Side note, depending on how many people you’re having, remember that if you purchase them individually, you’ll have to find a way to keep them cold.

I would maybe contact a supplier directly… but schools are a great place to check first.
If not, maybe Costco?

I’ve checked online with my local school district but they didn’t have a list of suppliers (not that I figured they would) but I’ll be emailing their purchasing dept. tomorrow, although Im almost 110% positive they deal with Sysco. I think checking to see if my venue could order them is a great idea, bc I can’t order online from either distributor. Says order through my local rep! Sheesh seems like a lot of work for a lil bit of milk!! LoL
Thanks for the input ladies!! 🙂
