What type of packaging do you prefer?

I'm working with my co-packer and he's giving me different ideas and pricing. I wanna see what "You" the consumer prefers.

I voted for the 1lb shaker. I only cook one or two butts at a time, CWC has the right idea for what he does.

Wolfe rub requires "A whole lot a shakin goin on". The holes are a little bit larger in the lb shaker and that would be good for me.

The plastic bags are tough to store. I prefer the shaker bottles.

Great input guys, this is what I need! I want to make the general public happy with the convenience as well as the rub. The co-packer is really pressing these Deli Style containers on me and it kinda makes sense. He's a professional chef and is giving me his personal input as well as input from his peers about the convenience of both using and storing the Deli Style containers. Them and the bags are much cheaper for me to have packaged vs. shaker bottles, so I'm keeping that in mind as well with my decision. Cheaper cost to me, equals cheaper costs to the consumer, another plus!

Please keep the input coming, I really appreciate it!

I voted for the 1 lb deli container. You have to stay price competitive. You might also want to offer bags.

The bags are by far the cheapest way to go, but......... I'm worried people will shy away because they gotta find something to put it in. The CP said the same thing. But I look at the success of other Rub Co's that only sell it by the bag, and realize if people like the product they don't care what it comes in.
