Wha-Wha-Wha-Whhhaaaaaa...Have you seen the commercial on TV? It ranks right up there with Orange Glo and ShamWow. The Debbie Meyer Green Bags, in all their glory. All of your produce will supposedly stay fresh up to 10 times longer (10 times!). And let's not forget that these little miracles are 1) made in the US and 2) reusable. IF these bags do what they claim, my life could be irrevocably changed. You see, one of my biggest issues with buying, cooking, eating fresh foods is they always go bad and I end up throwing out obscene amounts of food. I decide to make a salad, so I buy the head of lettuce, celery, peppers, cukes, etc., yet only use a portion of them. Well, of course the next day, no one in my family wants salad AGAIN, so everything sits in my fridge, wilting and turning blue, until garbage day, when it all gets tossed out.
I'd like to say that I am cynical about all these products advertised on TV, but I'm not. I always have a nagging "What if they really work?" in the back of my mind. Take, for instance, the Pro Activ Skin Care set. Those kids really do seem happy with their clear skin. And, it was mentioned in my Bible (the annual Best Beauty Buys issue of InStyle Magazine). AND, those pretty doctors do seem to know their stuff.
So, anyway, I was doing my weekly hunting and gathering at Target, when these little pups caught my eye. I could not let this opportunity pass me by. So I am now the proud owner of a box of 20 (reusable and made in the US) bags. I cracked it open and immediately put this intriguing product to the test. I am happy to report that my bananas are resting comfortably in their ethylene-eating cocoon. Check back tomorrow to see how they are doing.
