And the Award for Best Packaging Goes to…

…Napa Valley Naturals Olive Oil!

Napa Valley Naturals Olive Oil

Check out the clever pour spout that comes with the bottle:

Clever Pour Spout

I found this big bottle of oil at Brazos Natural Foods, marked down to $10.99 from $15.39.  For 24.5 ounces, that’s not a bad price!  I sort of hate the weeks when I need to buy new olive oil because it seems so expensive, so I was quite happy to find a good deal at the hippie food store.

But even better is the convenience of the pour spout!  The bottle came capped and sealed, with the pour spout attached.  Once you open the bottle, you can push the spout into place and throw away the cap.  It seems like such a small thing, a pour spout, but it means that every time I grab the olive oil, I can just pour.  Sometimes good design is an overhaul of your entire system.  And sometimes it’s as simple as a pour spout on the olive oil you bought on sale.

Has anything clever crossed your path lately?

* PPS I see now that Napa Valley Naturals not only has a website, but even better: they offer free shipping on orders of $49 or more!  That’s awesome.  Also awesome is their pomegranate balsamic vinegar—it’s my favorite vinegar in the pantry and my go-to choice for salad dressings.
