1. 10 More Foods I Bought at the 99¢ Only Store With Delightfully Anachronistic Package Design That I Need You To Be Aware Of

    This Cal Maid Frozen Concentrate for Lemonade looks like it’s from… 1979.
    Proof of Its Modernity: White plastic pull-tab to open can.
    Where You’d Expect to See It: Encased in two solid inches of ice in the basement freezer of the home owned by the hoarding couple Dad acts as caretaker for, who live in the city and haven’t stepped foot in the house for 28 years.
    Buy It Because: Summer’s almost here and you’re going to need to start picking up supplies for that lemonade stand.  This year I know you’ll turn a profit!
    • The name “Cal Maid” in its simple red and white logo on a largely yellow can with a photo of lemons along the end combine to make this package look like something designed ages ago.  But the lemonade inside?  Fresh and deeeeelicious!
