Pretty Product Packaging

Have you ever purchased something just for the packaging? I know I'm not the only guilty one. I was in Trader Joe's the other day and as I passed the bags of chips, pretzels and popcorn, I stopped dead in my tracks for this.

I picked it up and said to Jenna.."I have to get this!" I'm not a huge fan of packaged popcorn, but the packaging was too stinkin cute to pass up! And honestly, I would not have picked it up had it not been for the pink and cream striped bag with the old timey graphics! The back side was even cuter but I must have deleted it. :( It really was the best kettle corn I've ever tasted, and now I wish I had bought two. I think it said there was 7 servings in that bag, but I'm pretty sure they are mistaken. It was more like 4. Looks like we'll be making another trip out to Trader Joe's this weekend.

*Edit* After I had posted this, I was looking through my picture folder and came across this photo from last year. A pink Snickers bar. I'm glad I took the picture because I never saw one after that. And in case you're wondering if the pink made me buy it...no, it did not sway me. Okay...maybe just a little, but I would have picked it up in the drab brown just as quickly. :)

Tee Hee! That IS a really pretty popcorn bag! I wish we had Trader Joe's here in NY - My Aunt brought us Trader Joe's Coffee from North Carolina at Christmas and we LOVED it!:)

I'm with ya on the Snickers...I won't buy any new merch unless the packaging is my stores taste...but I gotta tell ya, my daughter is buying this new line of food product for the store and the packaging is a hoot...I'll give ya a hint on the coffee, called Wake the F--k up Coffee...all their products have the funkiest of labels and it's SELLING...go figger...

Hey, wanted to stop in and say hi!
Yeah, those serving sizes are accurate . . . if you eat like a bird that is!
