Hannaford is raising the bar when it comes to making shopping for Summer convenient. This year, the supermarket chain has developed a new type of grocery bag that is blue in color. This bag is specifically used for putting your frozen and refrigerated food items. I discovered the benefits of this during my Mother's Day cookout shopping.

Mike Norton is a Hannaford spokesperson and he told us why they decided to go with this new bag.

Especially in the Summer it's important to get cold food items to the proper storage as quick as possible and these bags help make it a little easier for customers to determine what needs to be brought in the house first. It's an easy way to help shoppers stay organized.

This simple solution does wonders for the shopping experience and I can't believe it hasn't been thought of before. I know this is one trend that will probably catch on. What's next? Insulated bags to help keep the food items cold? You never know!
