I am the proud parent of a college Freshman who is going 6 hours away to school. I want to mail him "goodies". In your expert opinions what type of container has worked the best for keeping the cookies fresh. In advance, thank you so much for responding....

I used to send cookies/brownies to my niece all the time. I put the cookies in a Gladware container. This was wrapped in bubble wrap and put in a sturdy mailing box. She always got fresh, unbroken goodies. I even sent her a "Birthday party in a box" for her bd her freshman year. It included a single layer frosted cake, party decorations, plates, cups, etc.! It was a big hit. Metal tins also work well.

I use my food saver and stop it before it breaks the cookies, brownies, cakes, etc. For cupcakes, send the icing separately in a zipper bag with a mark for where to cut the bag for no mess piping. If you don't have one, it would be a good investment over four years of college.
