Rating - Wonderful Clamshells

I always buy these from you guys. I love them. They are the most reasonably priced too, great quality, altogether, just a pretty wax melt pack they make. My customers love my products. Thanks Candle Science for helping me grow my business. Without you guys, I would have no business. Thanks again.

Rating - First time

First time I have ever used a clam shell and it was definitely worth it esp for my 6 pks I sell. I love it and my customers did too

Rating - Good Price, but quality has lowered

Great clamshells. I did lower my rating by 1 star because it seems like on my most recent order that they have changed brands/manufactures and they seem to be a slightly lower quality (thinner plastic, rough edges).

Rating - Very high quality

I had purchased clamshell tarts from another supplier..had to use a little tape to keep them closed. Not so with these high quality, sturdy clamshell tarts. once again, Candle Science impresses me with the high quality of their products. I just ordered more and am saving up to buy in bulk on these! :)

Rating - High quality

These are great! Thank you for carrying them. Great size for using up left over wax. The plastic is sturdy without being hard to open.

Rating - Thanks for adding this product to your Inventory!!!!

I use these clamshells all the time and I am very excited that you have decided to add them to your inventory. Candlescience is my favourite candle supply store and as you add more and more products to your inventory I will have less and less reason to shop elsewhere.
