Gillian Kyle Creamola Foam bag


If you are Scottish and of a certain age, you are likely to recognise the design Gillian Kyle has used on her new bag, featuring the packaging for the Creamola Foam drink. 

For those less in the know, Creamola foam was a soft drink manufactured, as it says on the bag, in the form of soluble crystals. It was made in Glasgow and sold from the fifties until 1998 when Nestlé ceased production of the drink. If you're eager to try some, there's apparently now an independent company who manufacture a similar drink but until you track them down, this bag is a tasty substitute. The charming packaging of the crystals has been foil printed in fuchsia onto a plain cotton tote. 

If you've got a sweet tooth for all things Scottish, Kyle was the artist behind the Tunnock's Tea Cake tote bag we featured a little while back.

You can get the back for £17.50.

Kit wallpaper featuring retro food packaging from Studio Nommo

Nommo wallpaper

If you believe you are what you eat, how about extending this motto to the rest of your home? Should you want to, the Kit wallpaper from Studio Nommo allows you to cover your walls with retro-style illustrations of packaging and create a Pop Art food fantasy look that surely even Warhol would be proud of.

The paper is based on a design by Andreas Samuelsson and features everything from boxes of Ritz crackers to Nintendo NES controllers. The design is fun and unusual but, even in this otherwise minimal marketing room shot, looks pretty full on! 

If you're brave enough to want to try this look out, the paper costs 130 Euros a roll.

Camembert cheese plates


Lovers of a particular brand of French fromage may remember the Camembert cheese clock from way back. More cheesy designs available here with the Camembert cheese plates

The set draws on the archives of Camembert and their history of distinctive labels and adverts. The designs look like they've come from various periods with my favourite being the art nouveau influenced label shown at the bottom. 

The designs are printed onto porcelain and, measuring just over 20cm across, you'll be pleased to hear they can hold a lot of cheese! A set of four costs £22.95.
