Better Chevre Packaging

Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door. It rolls off the tongue much better than "make goat cheese easier to squeeze out of the tube and the world with beat a path to your creamery." But I still need to commend Alabama's Belle Chevre for their inventive packaging. Opening a package of goat cheese is about as messy as trying to unroll a flytrap. Gooey, crumbly goat cheese never comes out of its skin-tight vacuum seal looking anywhere near as pretty as when you bought it.
Yet this is so simple--just Grip&Tear! And the plastic used to seal the goat cheese actually seems thick and durable, which should keep the seal from blowing prematurely. Technically, I should be thanking Sealed Air, which is the company that makes Grip&Tear, but I've never seen it before and can't think of something that so desperately needs an industry-wide overhaul as fresh goat cheese packaging. So kudos to Belle Chevre for raising the bar! And for making delicious, delicious cheese.
