Two Faced Nut Job

Nut Jars That Open On Both Sides

There you are slowly inhaling a jar of deluxe nuts, when you realize that peanuts and cashews -- read filler -- have largely displaced pecans and what nut (sic)

Sure you can shake the can for a while to surface the tasty morsels, but how much simpler would it be to simply close the jar, flip it over, and get instant access to the treasures below.

       Dammit - lured into another product: packaging: jar suggestion by the ruby-lipped hussy in the doorway. Curses.

       Makes it easier to find all the hazelnuts and throw them away all at once. Hurraaaay.

       oh dear, googling for 2 faced nut job will never be the same again...   

       ...no, I don't understand that either <grin>

       With opposing threads on each end. When the nuts are long gone, a pipe, as big as your nut hunger, can be made.

       Cool idea. Save some lids and this is bakeable with a can opener.

       Sorry, already half-baked by Al Jafee in MAD Magazine, 1979 [link].

       It certainly seems pre-baked by the ever excellent mad magazine. This does happen, and credit where credit is due is given, but the idea should remain and not be assigned an mfd, as without it, someone else will inevitably think of it and post it again in time.

       Also, this idea is not quite the same thing.
