Squeeze or dip…

Hate, is a strong word – but it seems to be the only way to describe my feelings on the sachet.  Sachets are the bane of my life – everyone likes condiments whether it be ketchup, mayonnaise, or mustard. These things are like food enhancing drugs that you want to spread liberally over any and every meal you eat. But the last thing you want, when your ravenous and literally want to drown your processed burgers, nuggets and cardboard chips in the good stuff, is to spend five minuets struggling, ripping, and teeth biting at some pathetic plastic rectangle sachet which will only yield a pea size amount of the gear… if your lucky.

Through my experience, sachets seem to be designed for maximum annoyance. It’s pretty much impossible to open the thing without getting the contents all over your fingers… some i find may even be pressure packed to explode all over your clothes. Most of the time your foods gone cold by the time you’ve opened 5 sachets to dip it in…

Alas the evolution is here! The revolutionized ketchup sachet (courtesy of Heinz) is finally making an appearance. This is easy to use and extremely convenient. It holds THREE times more than normal sachets, heck bring me a bottle, a jug, a huge bowl would be great… But i’ll settle for this. And this has the nifty feature of being able to squeeze the contents, or simply peel back the lid and dip!  Even better, you can buy multi packs of these at the super market – An essential necessity for anyones handbag surely?

So what are you? A dipper or a squeezer?

    On top of this being awesome, innovative and by far the best idea known to mankind, the packaging is sleek! Kudos to the designer.

    Brilliant points – I loathe having to stop eating to fiddle with the sachet. And because I can be clumsy I always end up dropping things and spreading the tomato sauce all over the wrong bits of me and the room too. Nicola
