DailyDirt: Keeping Your Food Safe And Sound

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Nature has devised some convenient ways to protect foods until we're ready to eat them -- bananas have nice yellow peels, grapes come in handy bunches, etc. People have also devised a few interesting packages for food (not just Pringles cans), but there's always some room for improvement. Here are just a few examples of some ways to store food/drinks in interesting ways. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!)

    A dry ice bottle would be a bit more exciting.

    Warm weather folks

    Clearly, the ice-bottle idea is from warm-weather folks who have never got stuck licking anything icy and inappropriate.

    "Coca Cola is experimenting with a Coke bottle made of ice, but it's only being sold in Colombia. "

    Are you sure that white Colombian substance is ice?

    Real Coca-cola anyone?

    I'd rather keep my eggs separated. They're less likely to crack that way.

    Breakage Rates?

    While in principal it would be nice to reduce waste and packaging costs from egg-cartons one important aspect of packaging is protecting its contents. The rubber band will likely weaken in cold and decay over time and temperature fluctuation. Granted if the eggs near-always go before the rubber then it is a non-issue.

    The more fragile it is the more breakages occur. The more expensive it is the less acceptable this becomes fiscally. For example, look at the toughness of cardboard boxes used to contain liquor. They are a boon to anyone moving.
