    Re: Sample bottles

    I hope so! Several will be filled up tonight.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I also have ordered a few rounds of the French squares. They go fast!

    They sure do go fast! I never order enough...maybe I should just stop sending so many samples to my friends!

    Glad to see I'm not the only nut case out here,(my wife thought I was for ordering them) I also ordered from them,but I ordered the 1.6 oz. sauce btls, they are perfect,just like the old mini's, I went a bit further and made small labels for all of them,(50) my intent was to btl my collection, for future tasting and comparing, I also gave a few out for x-mas.I need more. I also dipped them in wax, but after reading a few posts it is recommended that you use parafilm? rather than wax, I wonder why?

    Re: Sample bottles

    I had an in-person meeting w/ a fellow SBer come up with not enough time to order bottles on-line. My wife suggested the dollar store. Yesterday, I stopped at Dollar Tree and got multiple 3-packs, each for $1--I think they're designed for shampoo, etc. Yesterday, I washed em, filled em up, and shook em. They're working well so far. Not sure if they're mail- or plane-worthy, but they seem great in a pinch for a face-to-face meeting.

    That's pretty cool. I like the labels.

    Yeah, a little spritz in the face is refreshing!
