This one goes out to the collective brain trust of the bagged salad industry…

Leave it to a bunch of salad tossers to bring to market a product that screws the consumer upon opening

It’s 2014, we landed men on the moon fifty years ago and a remote control car on Mars two years ago – why on God’s green Earth is there not a zip lock on bagged lettuce from the grocery store at this point?  I can speak as both a single guy as well as a married husband & father of a family of less than six that I enjoy a nice salad with dinner; but I don’t always see the value in mixing up a gigantic bowl of which only a fraction will be consumed and thus the bagged options available at any grocery store do have an appeal.  My beef is that these pre-packaged pockets of produce are an all or nothing investment.  Heaven forbid you try and save some for a second sitting someday, bag clip or not, when you go to re-open the package the contents are more soup than salad.  It’s time the industry comes around on investing the additional .02 cents per package into some sort of a zip lock freshness retainer on the bag to conserve the tossed greens within.  It’s not as though this is a new concept or employing space-aged technology.  It’s mind blogging that I even need to write this at this moment in our evolution as a society.  Get your shit together salad baggers (and for that matter your cereal brethren might want to take note as well).
