This week is Brand Loyalty Edition of Works For Me Wednesdays (WFMW), which means we are to write about a brand we cannot do without.
I can’t believe I’m endorsing this brand but here goes… it’s Tupperware for me. Yes people I’m a closet Tupperware user. Why all the hush-hush? Well I’ve always associated Tupperware with being very “auntie” (a term we sometimes use to refer to middle aged, frumpy, nosy or just old fashioned housewives over here in Singapore… hope I didn’t offend anyone!) This is because more often than not they are sold by housewives. In addition the designs of Tupperware containers are hmm… how shall I say it? Not “happening”? And boy they don’t come cheap.
However to my surprise they are indeed wonderful containers despite how they look (indeed never judge a book by their cover… in this case the containers by their appearance). I discovered a few years back that Tupperware are the only truly air tight containers that can keep my biscuits, cereal and chips crisp and crunchy for a long time. With the high level of humidity in this country I live in, such food go soft and limp within hours of being out in the open. In other containers they last at most a few days but with wonder Tupperware, they stay almost as good as fresh for weeks! (I swear I don’t sell Tupperware for a living!)
I’ve tried Lock N Lock containers but they couldn’t withstand the humidity here. I should know I’ve lost some yumdelicious chocolate biscuits because of them! So now I only trust Tupperware with my (umm… I mean MY FAMILY’s) precious stash of goodies (and other food stuff). They’ve also introduced more “up-to-date” designs as well. To top it off Tupperwares’ guaranteed for life! If any part of it wears out, I can always exchange it for a new one so they’re worth every cent I spend on them.
(Jeeps… where did all that come from?! Maybe I SHOULD sell Tupperware to earn some pocket money…)
P/S: For those of you who live here in Singapore I’ve another recommendation. I only use Kwong Cheong Thye – Superior Dark Soya Sauce to cook all my Chinese braised stuff. Other brands just don’t taste the same!
