The spice of life

We're not talking about fancy artwork or pretty colors, but about content -- and not in the package but on the package. Many shoppers scan the "nutrition facts" before purchasing a product, but it's only after reaching home that we sometimes study a package for its literary qualities.

We have "Oscars" and "Tonys" and countless other awards for excellence, what about a "Packy" for classy package prose? If a contest were held today, one Georgia product would be a fierce competitor.

Maybe you've noticed the eye-catching cartons of Geraldine's Bodacious Cheese Straws at your favorite supermarket. You can find them at Publix stores and Cub Foods in Buckhead. On the front of each colorful carton is a silhouette of Geraldine with a quote from "Geraldine herself" about the particular straws within (there are at least six varieties). All are extremely tasteworthy and a great accompaniment as you read the clever accounts of the Bodacious family history on each back panel: Tales of festivity and redemption; the kitchen "accident" that resulted in Geraldine's Bodacious Chocolate Latte Bites; the dispute with Pearl, her best friend, and how she evened the score by serving Chipotle Cheese Straws to Pearl's garden club. Enjoy!
