To follow up on a post from Jan. about interesting packaging, I want to show you

that ice cream pints come in buckets, including the handle

and the influence of the wave of immigrants from Russia in the '80's. This is a chocolate bar that we bought for the picture on the package. Russia is not known for its chocolate for good reason.

Other things I wish I had taken pictures of:

  • for some reason, travel packs of tissue in almost every hotel we stayed in–in Israel–were from Turkey
  • and labeled in Turkish and dish soap comes in containers shaped like swans.
