Victim of Packaging

November 30, 2007

I confess that I am a victim of packaging.  I just can’t resist beautifully-designed boxes, tins, and bags.  You see above a super close up of a tiny package of Chelsea candy, a variety of Japanese toffee.  The box, a beautiful crimson, was spangled with foil stars that matched the foil wrapping the individual toffees.  And inside the box was this sweet little message–a completely unexpected touch that raised an already superb package to an even higher level.

    I would have fallen for it, too…

    It’s so very good that the nearest Uyajimaya is in Portland . . . there’s so much irresistable candy, not to mention the craft books, the bento supplies, and the general fun stuff. Little packages like this add up so quickly, and I find them so irresistable.
