Berry Hill egregious taco packaging saga continued (with photos)

August 20, 2008

So I’m a green freak, but Berry Hill’s (360 & Westlake Dr in Austin) breakfast taco packaging is over the top by any standards. They make McDonald’s DLT burger box look like a Prius next to this Hummer of a to-go order. One would hope that tacos protected by tin foil and Styrofoam and accompanied by a whole utensil set and chips would be a culinary masterpiece.  Sorry, they’re not even that good. If you want great breakfast tacos then go to Texas Honey Ham on Bee Cave. Those tacos are AWESOME and appropriately packaged.

That is a lot of packaging for 5 tacos!

That is a lot of packaging for 6 tacos!

Looks like a lot of food, but it is?

The picture below is not a packaging rant because I’m not sure which way makes sense. Ideally, the plastic box would be reusable. We could buy the appropriately packaged cheese and restore it in the convenient box. The strange part is that the price is identical. I would expect that the more durable package costs something extra.  This confirms that retail pricing is not logical – people buy on impression and instinct.

More questionable packaging?  Same amount of cheese, but lots more plastic.
