Food: Combination
Bachelor Bags   (+4, -1)  [vote for, against]
A load of a meal

This product is for the lazy, one-stop single guy type in all of us. Another evening home all alone again? No REAL dinner plans? Batchelor Bags are pre-packaged food items with similar cook times. In the mood for chicken nuggets and fires? How about steak fingers and tater tots? The bag consists of a wide-mouth opening for contortionless hand clearance for the easy, do-it-yourself handful portioning system. In addition, there should be heavy duty locking-strips on both ends, so bag orientation is non critical. Simply preheat oven, or set the home fryer to "stun" and toss in a handful of edible goodness. Come back in a few minutes, let cool and enjoy! Bags come in super family-size only, so each bag should last for a few meals depending on how much you prefer to eat at a sitting.

Never heard Cliff Richard ... It seems as though I've stumbled upon quite the mystery ... he's a singer?

So are we throwing the whole bag into the oven/microwave and eating out of it like a bag of Doritos? No plates, no silverware necessary. Just sit in front of the PS2 and reach in? I like that.

Locking strips may be unnecessary, I know a few bachelors who would eat an industrial sized batchelor bag in one evening.

is he a singer? well, yes, kinda. more an institution - he used to be *our Elvis* I am not quite sure how you would describe him today!

Bachelors Super Noodles are the only bachelor bags for me. Admittedly you do have to take them out of the bag and add a precisely-measured volume of hot water, but they have some secret highly addictive ingredient (possibly crack cocaine).

//chicken nuggets and fires//

I'm giving it a bun for that reason alone, sadly I can't give this idea two.

Fried bat tenders?

What a breath of fresh air. I didn't believe there was anyone in the world who hadn't heard of the Cliff-ster, especially in the run-up to Christmas. My faith in humanity is restored.

Futurama had a product somewhat similar to this called "Bachelor Chow". There's a billboard for it visible during the opening credits.

My college dining hall served something like this. They were called "Salona Shakers" (although I really have no idea why). Basically it was a foil bag of breaded/fried stuff. You could get chicken strips and waffle fries, breaded shrimp and onion rings, tater tots and onion rings, etc. Then, I guess the "shaker" part came from being able to open the bag and shake a desired seasoning powder on the food and then shake it all up.

I'm more interested in this slef fellow who seems to have replaced the elf. Is he up for hire?
