COOL HUNTING

The Condiment Packet Museum

As a design object, to-go condiment packaging's fussy "tear-here" notches and single-use wastefulness leave a lot to be desired—not to mention our general dislike of condiments themselves. But we do have a soft spot for the cheap pleasure of looking at obsessively-compiled and well-presented inventories of compact consumer goods, like the Condiment Packet Museum. Categorized by condiment and including over 900 different specimens, the curator finds the packets in restaurants, poaches them from other people's kitchens, and welcomes submissions.
