Are Most Foods Packed At Sea Level?

Mon Oct 16, 2006 6:00 pm

Being at 5,000 feet, it just seems whenever I open up a bag of chips or a Yoplait yogurt cup, the contents want to fly out.

It's probably just the decomposition gases...!  mischievous

... and regarding how cold and wet they mostly are, I assume that they must have been packed BELOW sea level.
Still, even in the most arid desert is an airport somewhere ...

I have the same problem living in Denver. What's really fun is when you pack your tolietries in Los Angeles and open them up when you get home. I've lost 1/4 of a bottle of suncreen this way before.

The yogurt cups seem to be the worst. My wife always seems to have it squirt in her eye. Of course I always have to follow it up with an R-rated comment.  Smile

I share this problem living even higher at 8,000 ft.

I learned really quick that anything liquid being packed at lower levels to be brought back up to this altitude need to be placed in plastic bags to save the rest of the contents of the suitcase.

I give all of my toiletry bottles a good squeeze before sealing them before I return home. That solved that problem. I don't know how to solve the yogurt jizzing in your eye problem though. Pudding cups do the same as well.
