I’m just wondering when it might be deemed “necessary” to poison your friends!!!

when you need to serve a cup of revenge? just kidding! lol!
seriously speaking, if you package these up in ‘non-descriptive’ cups, you can a have a present ready to give to anyone at any time — no more forgetting to stop and shop! if you package carefully, they will sit just fine for a while;-)
