I purchased this jar for my husband for Valentines Day. I wrote several messages on it to be etched. I couldn't wait to get it. When it came, I opened it to see the love notes inscribed...I couldn't read them! They were so light -- not at all the opaque-looking white shown in the photo. Barely readable, and the jar was only 1/2 full with kisses. For this price, I expected it to be something more special, easily readable AND to have the jar FULL of kisses! So like I said, "Disappointing".
