Clearly, you've been making too many purchases at AES. Good on you!

Wonder what the chocolate threshold is. Actually...I don't want to know.

Jan Wuesten also adds little sacks of Haribo to the parcels. After receiving a box with 12 chokes, I had to skip lunch

I got AES mints last year, in a little tube-shaped tin box.

I am beginning to feel a bit left out. Last year I bought several hundred dollars worth of tubes and transformers, and....no mints. This year, I bought less, but I bought 400 tube sockets and 100 coupling caps from their distribution house, CE distribution, no chocolate.

It is possible that someone might have thought about the 5 to 8 day shipping time and the typical temperature here and realized that the candy would not have survived the trip. NAH these are the same people that put a power transformer and a bunch of tubes in the same box seperated with a little brown paper. Some tubes didn't survive the trip either.
