Veggies: For these frozen Brussel sprouts—a healthy side dish that has gain popularity in recent years—the typical center-fin sealed layflat bag features crisply printed graphics that do the bare minimum for product ID on the front and info/instructions on the back.

The convenience of this stiff 2-lb. bag of French Style Green Beans is that they have been washed and are ready to cook—a large window on the front panel makes it easy to see that. The seam of this familiar center-seam layflat bag also pulls apart easily with a tug.
Cooks can easily open this mushroom soup in a Tetra Pak shelf-stable Recart aseptic pack because of its perforated top that, like the gravy carton you saw earlier, allows easy dispensing without a tool.
Paperboard canisters with easy-peel lidding hold pieces of Fried Onions. Color photography on the glue-applied paper label illustrates the main use of the product this time of year.
