I said No No No dear, your girlfriend isn’t going to think too kindly of you for cheaping out here.
He replied – Ma, you just aren’t hip – it’s the newest latest thing from Shark Tank.
So I looked it up and lo and behold, Zipz was the single best deal landed by an investor on Shark Tank.
The concept is the patented container into which you can extend your own product line. created by guys from the financial world who got their heads together to design the very creative plastic glass.
Zipz state-of-the-art packaging is the answer to the single-serve wine and ready to drink (RTD) cocktail category. Revolutionizing the industry, and winning some of the top awards in the U.S. packaging world, Zipz first major innovation was in the wine category. Combining innovation with sexiness Zipz Packaging created an elegant, portable wine glass made from high-quality PET plastic that looks and feels like classic glassware, with a rescrewable top that pulls double duty as a highly protective coaster. The flexibility this brings to the life of wine drinkers is astonishing.
Today Zipz offers a complete line of wine and cocktail options for our customers. Our filling line is located at G3 Enterprises in Modesto, CA. Partnering with one of the worlds great packaging and filling companies assures us that every glass filled is at the highest possible quality. Our oxygen levels at bottling are below any Single Serve PET solution available anywhere in the world. If you want the BEST, this is it!!
I can totally see its use at a picnic or at a lawn concert, like at Caramoor, or a Fourth of July fest on the beach where you don’t want to lug bottles of wine, glasses, and a corkscrew. At a dinner party? Not so much. For a certain age group, I think so.
The reviews of the wine itself however are so far meh but I guess that problem can be resolved when more wine brands branch out into these portable containers. After all, isn’t boxed wine, once singularly used by winos on the streets, now fashionable?
So kudos to these inventors. Am I going to rush out and buy some? Not likely, but I might try one, Mom Tax for using space in my fridge!
