Remember that time you bit into a Jelly Belly thinking it was “lemon,” only to discover it was actually “buttered popcorn?”  It’s a tough reminder of how helpful labels on food & drinks can be.  

As a host, adding a piece of identification to edibles can increase guests’ enjoyment by communicating the flavors of a dish… and it’s also a great way to add a decorative punch to a buffet.  Labels made with high quality paper, bold color, & graphic pattern add that little “something extra…”

    I like any label that says “spiked”! :)

    It’s really funny how we use to eat the wrong one thinking it was the right flavor. Labels really help and it also suggest sweetness especially when handwritten.
