Packaging all over the world
Whenever we go abroad we always make sure we check out the local supermarket. We've been collecting packaging from all over for a long time and I really enjoy wandering the aisles trying to find something nicely designed or just plain quirky. Here are some of our finds: fake snow spray from Japan (which involved my husband spraying all of it's contents into a plastic bag so it wouldn't explode in our luggage on the flight home - we nearly passed out from all the fumes filling up the hotel room), cute macaroni from Sweden and a toilet roll from Bali. There's also a lot of un-pc packaging out there too, the Darkie toothpaste was a gift brought back from Vietnam in the 1970's and when we went to Thailand a couple of years ago we found the updated version. It's now called Darlie and the man in the logo is no longer a specific colour. The Raga Muffins box (American brand but bought in Sweden) is questionable too but I think it's quite funny.
