For a recent playdate, I served carrots and dip as part of lunch in a L&L container. I put the leftovers back in the fridge in the same container, while the rest of the bag of carrots that I didn't serve stayed in a Ziploc bag within the original packaging.
The other day, I pulled out my carrots while I was making a veggie tray. Note that these were all out of the same original package of carrots. This is what I found.
These are the carrots that were in the Ziploc bag. Gross, huh?
These were in the Lock and Lock container. I did absolutely nothing to them before I took this picture! (The pictures is unedited, too!)
Lock and Lock: 1
Guess which carrots got used for the veggie tray????
I knew that L&L was airtight and that they helped to keep food fresher. But this accidental experiment definitely solidified it for me!!
