There are three bottles in my kitchen that I love. Every time I use them I’m grateful for them. You must be dying to know what they are…okay, I’ll tell you.
Trader Joe’s Real Maple Syrup 32 oz. bottle
This is the best maple syrup bottle ever. There’s a lip around the edge that catches the dribbling syrup, and then a hole in that lip for the syrup to drip back down into the bottle. Why aren’t ALL bottles made like this? Seriously, it’s genius. I buy my real maple syrup wherever I find it lease expensive (most often TJ’s or Costco) and then just keep reusing this bottle.
Trader Joe’s Clover Honey 24 oz bottle
I’ve never met a honey container I liked. EVER. Until this one. The plastic bottle is actually pliable enough to squeeze, so you don’t have to stand there all day waiting for the viscous honey to drip down. The cap gets a little messy like most dispensers, but it works well (I think better than most). I buy my honey at Costco and pour it into this bottle.
Upside down ketchup bottles
I love upside down ketchup bottles. I know Heinz makes them. Maybe other companies do too? Regardless, the idea is a revelation. You don’t have to wait for the thick ketchup to work it’s way down, and you don’t get that water squirting out first, turning your hot dog bun into bread pudding. Love it.
Yes, these are the things that make me happy. I suppose that’s why I have a food blog.
