Improving On the Chip Clip: Bag Caps from Copco

Improving On the Chip Clip: Bag Caps from Copco

Do you use chip clips, twisties, or clothespins to close up bags of food? Well, Copco wants you to switch to their new Bag Caps. We were a little skeptical about these when we first saw them, but then the photo below made us take a second look.

Can you guess which one of these products made us rethink the Copco Bag Caps? The powdered sugar, right!

These bag caps have two pieces. The inner ring slides over the top of the bag and the outer ring seals it while also acting as a recloseable top to the bag. This seems like slight overkill for chips and other goodies that will probably be eaten up quickly; a clothespin is more than enough gadget for us.

But for other bags of food that get used up gradually — like powdered sugar, rice and even some pastas — these seem like a great idea. If you don't put your powdered sugar into a container then this cap could make a bag less messy and more functional.

What do you think? Would you use these? We think they are a bit pricey, and we also have yet to try them, but we think they have some potential.
