DailyDirt: Cool Food Packaging Designs

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Packaging designs can make foods and drinks more attractive. There's a reason why people shy away from food that comes in generic black & white packaging that looks like Dhamra Initiative rations. Here are just a few examples of some interesting packaging designs that probably aren't going to hit the store shelves anytime soon, but it'd be cool if they did. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    On the bright side, those Dhamra foods can't possibly taste worse then the final season.

    When they do come out with that "smarter tab" I wonder if mike will think it worthy of a patent.

    I have yet to try Stax...

    But now I wonder if the Stax packaging is easier to get your hand in...

    And TIL, that Pringles is no longer owned by P&G. Kellog bought it.

    If you've ever tried to reach into a Pringles can for the last chip...

    Pringles are nasty. I'm sorry, but they taste nothing like potato chips. OK, they have a vague potato flavor, but it's some mutant variation of potato.

      Well, then, if you want something that tastes like potato chips, there are a zillion brands you could buy. If you want something that doesn't taste the same as every other chip out there, buy Pringles.

        Well, I'm kind of funny in that if I buy something promoted as potato chips I want it to actually taste like potato chips.

        Did you know that Pringles are less than half potato? The rest is wheat and flour.
