I want to know what the fuck is up with cookie packaging technology. The chips ahoy/ chips deluxe/ others cookie packaging involving a plastic tray holding all the cookies with clever partitions to keep the cookies in each row from touching eachother FUCKING SUCKS! Jesus christ. You manage to get the damn packaging open while avoiding the inevitable ripping the wrapping in half, and you pull the cookies out, eat a few, and try to push it back in AND GODDAMMIT YOU CAN'T GET IT BACK THE FUCK IN!! It keeps getting stuck and it's friggin' impossible. On top of that, the packaging hardly protects the precious cookie cargo inside from the elements on the outside. I think with the advancements over the past 20 years (computers going from the size of a room to a 14 inch tower which still does exponentially more equations per second, car technology, audio and video tech, etc.) you think they'd be able to make a better fucking cookie box. Ok, i'm done.

Planned obsolescence my friend. They made it illegal on appliances, so they moved onto cookies, corporate bastards.

They must figure that we will tear apart the cookie-container and will have to either:

A. Suffer stale cookies

B. Buy some new non-month-old cookies that don't taste like coffee grounds.

Either way we, the consumer, get screwed.

As always. Name a time when the friggin owners of companies decided to be generous and give the consumers what they wanted.

And for the record, I'm not counting "sticky tabs" or those gay metal twisty tie things as advances.

No dude, they're much better now. Chips-a-Hoy actually come stale from the stores so you don't even have to age them.

This is very true, those things really suck! It sucks even more when you get to the very last row of cookies and are forced to take the WHOLE damn thing out of the bag, and then forced to shove the thing back into the bag, which usually ends with failure. Might as well just make your own damn cookies...

I've discovered that when you get to the last two rows, it is best to put the tray back in backwards (or try). I also have found that putting them back in the package serves but one purpose: To placate our innate need for packaging for our food products. It really doesn't do anything for them, yet we still try constantly.

I'm sorry Vacc, I ... I just don't know what I was thinking. I think I was overwhelmed by all this ranting or something to that effect.
