Scott Peiffer and Mike Menendez, creative director and senior designer for Sandals Resorts In-House Design Department sent us these images of their new line of Caribbean sauces for the resorts. With the packaging, the designers wanted to embody the true character of the Caribbean by conveying its rich diversity, food and personality. The sauces will be sold in Sandals gift shops and, possibly, US markets. The sauces fall under a new division of Sandals Resorts called "Sandals Lifestyle", which is slowly beginning to launch in and around the company. They anticipate more food products in the future.

True Delights are the foodie's version of a snack bar. Aimed at adult consumers, they are positioned as "indulgent wholesome snacks." Quaker teamed up with DuPuis for the packaging design. Here's how DuPuis approached the project:

• Its fresh, natural ingredients
• Its true wholesome decadence
The resulting package system is simple, and successful, using sophisticated imagery and deep, rich colors to stand out on the shelf—and apart from the competition. In fact, testing showed better than average find-times, lower instances of misidentification, as well as strong taste and quality perceptions.
