Pink Boxes

I've been asked this Imponderable in the past, but for some reason, I've received the following mystery three times in a month: Why are bakery boxes usually pink? I'd be curious to know if the last time you went to a bakery and bought enough stuff to be packed in a box -- what color was the box?

Or if any of you have a lead on the origins of the pink boxes, I'd love to hear from you. You can click the "Email" button to the left. Thanks!
