What are your favorite product improvements of late?

Asked by breedmitch (12141points) July 15th, 2008

So, maybe I’m a little corny, but I love it when a product we’ve all known and loved for years gets an update. A few years back, the single serving packages of Saltines (like what comes with chili at a diner) got a re-design. Well, the package did. The seam down the back was relocated from the middle of the package to just along the edge, making opening your crackers a tidy, efficient procedure.
3M has a new line of bandages that I’m ga-ga for. They blow mom’s old Band-Aids (even their new similar product) out of the water.

What are some other product improvements you have noticed?

Wow. You pay so much more attention to that sort of stuff than I do.

Yeah, I’m a little crazy.

I hate the redesign of product packaging. I rely on the way the package looks to grab it quickly. With new logos and such, it adds to my shopping time.

I’m with Syz; I am soo not that observant.

I don’t know how I lived without soda fridge-packs. Or soup-can pop-off lids!

I love the resealable stock that comes in rectangular cardboard boxes. So nice for small households.

I love how Mayonaise isn’t in an annoying jar anymore, but in those handy squeeze out bottles. Also I like how the splenda packets come in different forms.

@TheHaight And have nice sayings on them!

TheHaight's avatar

Yes! The nice sayings too. : )

I think canned food having ring-pulls added was a great bonus, though my local supermarket still doesn’t add them to all the cheap tins I buy…

I also like how Innocent Smoothies cartons say ‘Stop Looking at my Bottom’ on the underneath!

I like the zipper re-sealable shreaded cheese they have now.
