Hungry? Have Some Packaging!

by Eric Carlson, CPP - Chainalytics
Intego, who develops and sells desktop internet security and privacy software for Macintosh is shipping their products in packages made from organically-grown, edible materials. Using rice- and soy-based packaging, and vegetable-based inks, all of Intego’s boxes are derived from organic raw materials, and are edible.

Intego’s boxes come in two flavors: the company’s VirusBarrier X6 box will be bacon-flavored, and its Internet Security Barrier X6 box will be roast chicken-flavored. In addition, each box will include packets of low-fat, low-salt, naturally-flavored salad dressing: French dressing for VirusBarrier X6, and blue-cheese dressing for Internet Security Barrier X6. Standard license boxes, good for protecting up to two Macs, will contain two packets of salad dressing; family pack boxes, which protect up to five Macs, will contain five packets.

In addition, nutritional information for the box and salad dressing is printed on the sides of the boxes.

Just to note- only those boxes bearing a logo saying “eat me!” are edible.

  1. I think this proves that people will eat almost anything that is bacon flavored!
