Bacon and Wine on the Move

There is a growing trend on my favorite foodie tech blog, Cooking Gadgets. I don’t know why, but there seems to be a high demand for gadgets that help you manage a wine glass and a plate. They recently had a post highlighting three of these things. If you can’t manage holding a little plate and a glass of wine at the same time, maybe it’s time you put the wine glass down.

The latest product to hit this fast growing market is the Clip on Wine Holder. It simply clips onto any plate and presto you have a wine holding plate. Your drunken wino friends will be amazed. You will no longer have that embarrassing, “Wait I have to put my plate down” moment again when meeting someone new at a party.

From my fellow non-wine drinking readers (I’d rather drink a nice Belgian beer) here is a product for you (us). It’s called the Wrap N’ Mat, it’s an alternative to those plastic sandwich bags we all use. This thing is perfect for those BLTs you pack everyday for lunch. I also like the name, it reminds me of the time when my friend Matt tried to rap.

Simply fold around sandwiches, veggie sticks, cookies and other goodies, fold the cotton wrapper closed, secure with the Velcro closure, and food stays put. To top it off, these smart reusable sandwich wrappers unfold into placemats! The FDA approved food grade PEVA lining easily wipes clean after every use and is certified by the manufacturer to be totally lead-free.

I think the last sentence in the description is really strange. I mean, if a product is made to store food, I would hope it would be safe to assume its lead–free. But then again, I am sure parents thought the same thing about toys for kids.
