Debbie Meyer Greenbags

Does food really keep up to three times longer in these Green bags?


Review: Debbie Meyer Greenbags

Published 19:10 pm

u've seen the commercial and were intrigued. Simple green bags into which you place raw produce that lasts two or three times longer than your average storage bag. They are called Debbie Meyer Greenbags and are advertised As Seen on TV. But you need not order from that toll free number; highly dubious, I picked up a package of this product at the local Winn Dixie. On the cover is a photo of bananas that have spent five days in Debbie Meyer Greenbags compared to bananas that were kept in regular storage. The Greenbag bananas looked yellow and fresh whereas the bananas kept in regular storage are black and mushy.

Okay, here's the skinny. I tried the banana test. Along with apples, onions and potatoes. To be honest, the potatoes did not do too well. After a few days there were those sprouts and eyes that we all know too well. The onions were going pretty strong until I made the bush league mistake of putting a cut onion back on the bag. That's not recommended, my friends. But about those bananas. Can I assume that we have all been in the situation where bananas go pretty rotten after a just few days?

Maybe it's the humidity of the Florida panhandle. I don't know, but keeping bananas edible for more than a few days has always been a task nearly as difficult as getting someone in the Bush White House to crack open a history book. I remember about ten years ago there was this invention from which you would hang bananas that was supposed to get them to keep longer. Tried it. Was less than impressed. Then I read that if you keep bananas enclosed in a paper bag they would last longer than if kept in either a plastic bag or allowed to range free. Did not work up to my expectation. But what about these Debbie Meyer Greenbags? How did my banana experiment go?

After a week the bananas are still fresh and edible. On the other hand, they do have a black spot around the tip and do not look bright and yellow as advertised on the bag or in the commercial. Of course, that could well be attributed to the fact that I did not make sure to squeeze all the air out of the bag that I could. I'm not sure if that is a requirement or not, but I assume it would be advised. And, let's keep in mind always that my air conditioner was not exactly working at peak capacity during that week. (Things are much better now, I'm so very glad to say.)

And, lastly, I do live in what I like to refer as the armpit of the world, a place where short sleeves are nearly always a requirement for celebrating Christmas Day and this experiment took place the first week of May. So it is entirely possible that where you live a group of bananas placed into a Debbie Meyer Greenbag might actually do exactly as advertised. Over the long term, I have no idea how well these Greenbags actually work, but they appear to be an improvement over Ziploc style bags over the short term.

Yes, we do have bananas. We do have bananas today that are worth eating and that were bought over a week ago.
