Okay, panties is typically a topic I'd steer clear of on this site. And, to be candid, I know next nothing about them. I think they are good for straining things. I've used them for that before. But my childhood is full of memories not of the panties themselves, but the containers they came in. I hadn't thought about Leggs in a long, long time until Rachel and I were in a Target recently and passed the panty display. And I noticed the brand was no longer in the familiar white egg, but in non-descript little boxes. Now, I realize the eggs haven't been sold for years, but when did they stop? My mom would buy Leggs brand hose and my brother and I would use those plastic white eggs as makeshift "space ships" for our Star Wars action figures. I think we'd put half a Legg egg on our face as a "fake nose." I'm sure we had other uses for them, but as space ships is my biggest memory (I think we were inspired by the round, egg-like spaceship that Mork in Mork and Mindy came out of). So, how many of you remember these? And when did the egg discontinue?
I understand they probably discontinued for environmental reasons, the packaging, I guess, wasn't very eco-friendly, but the packaging certainly was a stroke of marketing genius!
