Packaging Whore: Roman Honey

Look what Alice brought back for me all the way from glorious Roma-- a huge glass jar of organic, orange-flavored honey!!! It's so heckaheavy, she's out of her mind for even thinking of lugging this back to SF in her luggage. Her devotion for me is like no other.

Alice is just as much, if not more of a Packaging Whore as I am. She admitted that she saw this honey in Campo dei Fiori, loved the label design, and bought it. Sigh. We are such SUCKERS.

But come on, can you blame her? It's just so damn cute! See the honeycomb design on the cap? LOVEIT.

Alice said that the guy at the honey stall in Campo gave her a complete run-down about his honeys in English. My Italiano is a bit rusty, but I am assuming that he is Osvaldo, as the label says "Osvaldo er biologgico."

Bear with me, but I'm reading that this is organic, made by native bees from Umbria (the neighboring region to Roma).

Handwritten to consume before 2012.

Remember when @totallymatt brought me back a jar of cornichons from Paris? That one was also a Packaging Whore highlight. All great packaging comes from abroad- why is that?? Get your food packaging together, USA!

LOVE YOU ALICE! Thanks for such a wonderful gift, from one Packaging Whore to another.
