Interactive cup noodle package for Nissin mimics famous painting

In a nod to a famous painting from the 1600s, “The Milkmaid” by Dutch artist Johannes Vermeer, Nissin recently took to Twitter to unveil specialized packaging for its U.F.O. Yakisoba instant noodle variety that doubles as an interactive art piece. In the painting, a domestic kitchen maid is depicted carefully draining milk from a tall pitcher into a squat container. For the cup noodle packaging—aptly called The Yakisobamaid—the lid design features a print of the painting. The print is placed in such a way that when water is strained through the lid, it appears as if the Yakisobamaid is pouring it. According to Hybebeast, many users on social media are hoping that Nissin will make the packaging available in the near future.

Metal can design makes it easier to empty tuna onto plates

The Apri Gira Facile (translated as “Easy Flip”) packaging offers a more efficient way of enjoying canned tuna. Introduced by Italy-based Nostromo, a subsidiary of Spanish multinational Grupo Calvo, the Easy Flip metal can eliminates the need for using a fork when emptying tuna onto a serving dish, thanks to the absence of an inner rim. With its easier serving capabilities, the can also uses less oil inside compared with standard tuna cans. “We know that 3 out of every 4 consumers do not add the oil that comes from the cans to their plate, and at least 37% of them say they throw it down the drain,” said Mariví Sánchez, Grupo Calvo’s director of sustainability and communications. Accordingly, the Apri Gira Facile reduces food waste and offers an improved environmental footprint. And finally, the can features a flexible aluminum lid, ensuring easy and safe opening.

Kid-friendly silicone storage container allows for mess-free snacking

For children who are prone to licking their fingers after enjoying a messy snack, the Monchi provides a cleaner and more hygienic on-the-go eating experience. Tailored for children ages 3 and up, the silicone-based food box features a lid with integrated finger grips, enabling children to grab their food without coming in direct contact with it. As a result, fingers stay clean and messes are avoided. Created by students at the NUS Division of Industrial Design (NUSDID) in Singapore, Monchi also provides a fun experience thanks to the character-inspired design of the lid. When not in use, the BPA-free container can be collapsed and easily packed away.
