Here is an idea, finally some chip clips that actually work and they are called Ba'Noodle. Now I now the name is a little hard to remember and maybe they should have just went with bag noodle, but these chip clips are out of this world.
Every once in a while a new infomercial product comes out without a lot fanfare but slowly begins to get noticed. This product has actually been on the market a few months but it was not until Anthony Sullivan of Pitchmen slapped his new Sully Seal Of Approval on the side and filmed a commercial that this thing really started to take off.
For those interested in Pitchmen or Direct Response in general, it seems that Anthony Sullivan has put his weight behind a select group of products and is marketing them partly through his new As Seen On TV Sully Store. Not a bad way to go considered the Sully Seal of Approval acts much like a trust badge which consumers like to see on web sites before they buy products. It gives the consumer a sense of trust knowing that the company they are ordering from is not some shady operation and if there are any issues, then there will be someone to contact to help resolve it. At the Sully Store there is contact information for the company and this Pitchmen is not exactly hiding under a rock so perhaps the idea of putting his endorsement out in front of a group of products will help them sell better.
Regardless, the Ba'Noodle Chip Clips are now out there and they seem to be selling well. They do solve the common shortcomings of the standard Chip Clips and drastically improve upon their efficiency. Most of us felt the old clips were ingenious and our problems were solved, but they are not as air tight as we would like to think. Further, if you test their strength by turning a heavy bag of dog food over, you will quickly see one glaring limitation immediately. The true test is to fill up a supposedly air tight bag with water, clip it, then turn it over. Chances are it will leak and if it isn't water tight, it is not air tight either.
In a lot of cases whether or not you can seal your food in an air tight container is not a huge deal, but when it does matter for items that can spoil easily, attract bugs or even spread germs, you definitely are better off with something like Ba'noodles.
All you have to do is roll them down any bag and bend the sides to create air tight storage that will keep food fresher longer. Some people are hesitant to order infomercial products because of the reputation of deceptive ordering practices but in this case the process is pretty straightforward. Considering you cannot find Ba'Noodles in stores just yet it would be a good idea to understand just how much you will pay if you take advantage of the Buy One Get One Free telephone order.
The price is $10 plus $4.95 shipping and handling but the free set also has a $4.95 S&H charge. In total you will pay $19.90 for twenty Ba'noodle chip clips and that really is not a bad deal. Twenty should should be more than enough considering they are durable, dishwasher safe and completely reusable.
Look out for Ba'Noodles in stores sometime soon because I have a felling these things are going to be selling well for a long time coming.
