This is Highly recommended, a column dedicated to what people in the food industry are obsessed with eating, drinking and buying right now.
If a box 100 paper bags made of paper When I showed up at my door, I remembered buying it. I had them pinned to an order from Webstaurantstore when I was stocking myself with boring necessities like Delicatessen containers, Squeeze bottles, and a snow-ready doormat. All of these things are great – buy them, use them, use them again, etc. But these bags of popcorn make me a lot happier on a daily basis, and they are cheaper than an impulse buy from Us Weekly at the checkout.
First, take a look at these bags. I believe classic bags of popcorn are among the best-designed grocery packages (those big tubs at AMC that were used to advertise movies don’t count). The appearance has remained unchanged for decades. The graphics are simple but make the most of their small space. There’s buzz and streak! They tell you what you are going to get. Let me point out further evidence that popcorn containers are a fine art Andy Warhol’s Popcorn Box Quadrantwhich I prefer very much to his tangy Campbells soup cans.
I will never forget the prettiest bag of popcorn I came across in a Houston car rental office. (This is exactly the kind of place beauty hides. Are you looking for that?) It was red and orange with “Fresh,” “Pop,” and “Corn” on separate lines and a row of white popcorns dancing below. You can buy 1000 of these bags for $ 20 herewhat i should be aware of is a large amount.
The bags that I boughtThey are red and brown, however, with bold vertical stripes and five dancing grains at the bottom. They’re 1 ounce, enough for three to four handfuls of popcorn. They read: “Pop Corn, Hot n ‘Fresh.” $ 3.99 for 100 grease resistant bags. The ratings, both of them, are glowing.
I mostly used them to give away Cookies and homemade nut mixes to friends, family and the postman. During the holidays I “wrapped” small presents in them. You could fill your popcorn bags with real popcorn and take a walk around the neighborhood. If you’re sporty, you can pack your homemade ones Date cocoa energy bites Tuck it into the back of your cycling jersey / ski pants and you no longer have to worry about the oil staining your spandex. Fill a bag with breadcrumbs, feed some local pigeons – this is your carnival now. Keep tampons in your purse. Send your rental check in one (in a larger envelope) to surprise and delight your landlord. I don’t know, get creative!
I have so many bags of popcorn.
