It’s interesting how packaging can affect the way we consume products and perceive how they taste. Just adding some coloring to foods can make them seem to taste completely different. But changing the color of the packaging might have a similar effect? Here are some interesting packaging changes for some common beverages.
- Boxed wine has gained some acceptance with wine drinkers, but will a slightly smaller version of boxed wine sell well? Taking it to the next logical step, there should be “juice box” size wine boxes coming out, too. Who wants to sip wine through a tiny straw? [url]
- Some folks seem to hate plastic water bottles, so now there’s a paper milk carton without milk, filled with water. Looks like ultra-skim milk — 0% milk. [url]

- Coca-Cola has stopped making its ‘White Christmas Cans’ after a month of selling them because consumers don’t like the new look of the can — and some people think it tastes different. The white cans also look a bit too much like Diet Coke, so some drinkers are getting a few more calories than they expected. [url]
