As I walk down the aisles of the grocery store, every now and then I see a package that will make me smile. Rarely does the package actually smile at me. Designed by David Brier, the brand and packaging for Botanical Bakery out of Napa Valley is fun, quirky and full of personality.

Creating the lips out of a leaf was the perfect match, since the lips, like lipstick, can change with each flavor as the lips announce the flavors to the customer. The grinning leaf lips with the tag line Natural. Delectable. Unapologetic. is a match made in heaven.

And while I have not tasted the contents of the smiling package, the colors and typography lead me to believe my smile would remain well beyond the first bite.
