Sometime ago I came across a supplier of cardboard boxes with a polystyrene insert that took a standard 1lb jar for posting

Anybody seen these?, as I have lost the info.

Nothing to do with packaging but in my experience hexagonal jars are much stronger than the standard one pound round ones. Mechanically, this probably shouldn't be so but having dropped several full jars over the years the ones which break are always the round ones. I suspect the glass is thinner.

YUP the hex jars are great, I packed several hundred for a relative in Switzerland and he posted them to clients and had no breakages that I know of.

It was a rectangular package with two recesses for the honey.

Canna remember the source though.
