I have some cookies that I'd like to ship. Is there a specific shrink wrap that you've got to use? Does it make your cookies taste a specific way? I got a shrink wrap bag that I bought in the craft section at Walmart, but I'm unsure. Should I wrap the cookie in saran wrap first and then the shrink wrap? Sorry for so many questions...just trying to figure this out. It's my first time shipping cookies! icon_smile.gif

Clear food grade polyolefin shrink wrap:

Royal 80 gauge shrink bags, food grade and non-food grade:

Food grade shrink wrap is more expensive than non-food grade so yours is probably for use with craft items (unless it's marked food grade).

If I were you, I would wrap in Saran Wrap and then the shrink wrap. icon_smile.gif

Thank you Jan! As Usual you are a wealth of knowledge! Glad I double checked before doing it, and I will definitely invest in food safe shrink wrap! icon_smile.gif
