Throwback Thursday: Thanksgiving -- Like Packaging -- Requires the Right Blend

November 27, 2014


Happy Thanksgiving! We hope that you’re finding time to relax with friends or family this week. To celebrate this festive Turkey Day, we’re throwing back to last year’s Thanksgiving blog. Be safe and enjoy yourself this holiday!

At Ernest Packaging Solutions, we love to mix it up … with packaging materials, that is. The expert engineers in our Innovation Lab craft custom solutions that protect our customers’ packages. It’s finding the right mix of strength, weight and design that makes our solutions work, and that keeps our customers coming back.

In the Thanksgiving season, as our minds turn to family, football and food, we wanted to reflect on what makes this holiday the best. Thanksgiving has always been about bringing things together, like the pilgrims and the Native Americans, pumpkin pie and whipped cream, politics and drunken uncles. It’s the  blend that makes it so special.

So we wanted to share three of Ernest Packaging Solutions’ favorite “mashed up” Thanksgiving dishes with you:

Yes, the turducken. This chicken-duck-turkey beauty is the ultimate top-of-the-food-chain fist bump. The way that the stuffing protects and hugs each juicy layer is really a packaging clinic. Visit the Home Cooking website for a turducken recipe and wow your family this Thanksgiving.

Cosmopolitan Cranberry Sauce
Cosmopolitan Cranberry Sauce is the divine combination of an old Thanksgiving favorite – cranberry sauce – with a dash of spirits. What’s not to like? This combo goes together almost as well as “bubble” and “wrap”! Find the recipe at Creative Culinary.

Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Pie
Never again will you have to choose between pies at Thanksgiving – you can have the best of both worlds with this recipe from Taste of Home.

If you went all-in this Thanksgiving and tried a turducken, or any of these recipes, send Ernest Packaging Solutions a pic of your creation on Twitter (@ErnestPackaging) or tell us about it on Facebook.

At Ernest Packaging Solutions we’re not afraid to mash things up! We’ll do whatever it takes to figure out the most successful packaging blend of materials for our customers – our solutions are always uniquely customized. So when it comes to finding the right mix for your next packaging needs, contact Ernest Packaging Solutions – you’ll be THANKful you did.
