IT'S ABOUT F*CKING TIME


It's about f*cking time they got rid of that stupid bag that was spilling sugar the second you pocked it up. Then trying to pour sugar into a measuring cup was another waste of sugar and if you didn't put it in a ziplock bag or transfer it to sealable container, then the next time you go to use it, you have a big brick of sugar. Now if Gold Medal flour would do the same thing.

The lightweight, unbreakable, recyclable plastic of our 4 lb. canister offers the ultimate in convenience. It’s easy to handle, and includes an airtight, easy-to-open lid. That means scooping out sugar is simple, and you won’t have to worry about excess spills or messes.

  2. I don't keep sugar at home but I hear you on the flour. I pour mine into a clear air-tight Rubbermaid container I picked up as part of a set at Big Lots for $10.

  4. Since last year we can buy sugar in cartons, with a screw-on/off tab. Really handy and no loss of product or sugar loafs after some time.
    Have a look at the product http://www.vangilse.nl/

    Today the Netherlands, tomorrow the world! Hahahahaa

  7. Good thing. Even better would be if you could take your empty container back to the store and re-fill it from the bulk sugar dispenser! Progress comes in little leaps. :)

  8. Same for corn starch and baking powder - thank you, Jebus!

  9. Ingenuous. In fact, just the other day, at the grocery store, they had to make an announcement for someone had place a torn bag of sugar in their carriage and was traipsing traces of sugar all throughout the store.

  10. Clearly your post struck a chord with your readers... I prefer to order out so I have no idea what you are referring to ;-)

  12. re wcs comment about bulk containers at the store: sounds good, until someone scoops up a load of cocaine, or an old dirty sock. Unfortunately, Little House on the Prairie days are long gone. Sigh....

  13. We don't have humidity out here so things like sugar and flour don't become solid after a few weeks. However it is nice to have a plastic container for easy access. I usually store most of my bakeing crap in my Tupperware. Yes, I'm old fashioned.

  14. No problems here with sugar going hard like a brick. Bill goes through a five pound of sugar every two weeks or so, straight out of the bag. But I do appreciate these little improvements that make our lives easier. One BIG problem I have is getting into packages. Maybe its me but it seems the old I get the harder it is to get into boxes, bags and plastic jugs. Sorry about all the references to 'hard'. THAT doesn't get hard around here eitherl

  15. As much as I hate plastic, this does seem like a better solution. Which reminds me... I need sugar.

    Or-- you could get sealable glass containers and PUT the sugar and flour into them and recycle the bag.

    I'm just sayin'

  16. Unless the container is going to be made out of an easy to recycle plastic(1 or 2)or a veggie plastic, I'd give this one a thumbs down. At least paper can be recycled in almost all municipal recycling centers or composted in your back yard.

  17. Now if only Splenda would come in one of these...
