A: I could, but I prefer not to as the taste is definitely not as good as when they are fresh.

A: This depends on how packed my schedule is and how many you are purchasing. I consider 8+ dozen a large order.
Q: How many flavors can I get in a dozen?

Q: Why can't you give me 12 flavors in a dozen, etc?
