I’m not sure why this annoys me as much as it does but it really does. (I know I’ve ranted about this already) Who the hell thought this up?? Just what we need: More impediments to opening the jar, more plastic added to the environment and more instructions on how to live our lives (from a pickle company).
You cannot break this plastic with your finger, you must use a scissors or knife. So add more equipment to have to use, and with which to potentially harm yourself, to the list of reasons this is a bad idea.
The bottom picture is a European jam jar. I’m good with it. It’s paper.
