The tea rests inside a molded plastic spoon with a filter and foil overwrap. The perforated overwrap also acts to bundle the spoons in a 20-count carton.
Users separate the spoon at the perforation, remove the foil seal and place the tea-filled spoon in a hot cup of water for steeping.
Eurobubblies, Santa Monica, Calif., distributes the imported tea in the United States. The product comes in four varieties: Green Tea with Mint, Verbena Herbal, Pure Ceylon and Earl Grey.
Suggested retail price is from $4.99 to $5.99.
Eggology Inc. hopes to change that. The Canoga Park, Calif.-based company markets Eggology On-the-Go 100% Egg Whites in a 4-ounce plastic cup.
The oval-shaped cup carries a full-body shrink label. A transparent lid allows consumers to see the clear liquid inside.
To prepare, consumers shake the cup and remove the top portion of the perforated label. They then place the container in a microwave and heat for 95 seconds. Consumers can eat the scrambled eggs right from the container or place it on a plate.
Eggology markets the refrigerated cups individually and in a 4-count paperboard sleeve.
