Watching a little tennis, reading a little web.
NYT takes a look at snack packs.
I don’t do the snack pack thing. I’m cheap. I do okay portioning out snacks on my own, though honestly, those are foods I tend to avoid now-a-days. We don’t do chips too often. It’s nuts instead. The only cookies I eat are Kashi’s Dark Chocolate Chip Oatmeal, which are more like a granola bar than a cookie. (But still, a 130 calorie cookie.) They get repackaged into plastic baggies for freshness. What I’d like to see more of is resealable packaging. If you buy a bag of chips, say, and only eat one portion a day, a week later when you eat that last portion, those chip are not going to be worth eating. Still a large bag with seven portions, only six of which you’ll eat is cheaper than a box of six “snack packs.” And less packaging waste too!

An interesting passing note in the article:
