Because in their economy, anything pre-packaged into individual bags by the factory has got to be more savory, more delicious, more valuable than those big family size boxes.
But let's run a little financial report on those individual snack packs, shall we?
Okay, okay, I'll leave you alone. You love those little snack packs and I'm going to ruin your mojo.
So let's just put it this way...in a house with eight children, it is not economically feasible to provide each Octamom kid with an individual snack pack for our snack sessions that run throughout the day.
As in, we would be out of house and home in short order if we tried to keep these ravenous hoards in little bits of colorfully printed foil envelopes of Goldfish.
Hence, this system.
I'm sure some of you had already been using this method at your homes...I'm just a little slow on the uptake. But the kids are thrilled to have their own individual bags...because things just taste better out of your own little baggie.
