White or Black boxes?

This past weekend we were given black turn in boxes at Snow Shoe. I had never even seen this at a comp. The KCBS reps wanted an opionion on them so I thought before contacting them, I would ask you folks. Here is some turn in boxes both in white and black. DONT judge the food persay, just how the box with the food in it looks. Let me know what which one you like.

I like the look, but what the heck is the point? Who are they trying to please with the new look?

It seems the black boxes "frame" the food better IMO...when will they make a final decision?

I like the traditional white boxes, I guess I'm more used to seeing White.

It looks like my brother took the pictures, He always takes the picture from the lid side. Your appearance looks great even from the "wrong" angle.

Never seen one of those blaqck plates.... They sale them at Williams-Sonoma? 8-[

I actually have a few black plates, but only use them for certain things.
White plates are concidered to be the best 'frame' for food by the restaurant industry.

But... The black with the garnish in the pictures made the food not look as washed out looking as the food in the white containers did.
