    Default plano containers for gulp alive

    Has anyone tried the new Plano screw top containers for their gulp alive? Harold said he uses the plastic bowls from his local Chinese restaurant in a previous thread, but since we all don't have that availability, I'm still looking for something that does not leak or get eaten by the juice...

    Does the gulp eat thru ziplock bags. I always thought about soaking my platics in it. Rob

    I once placed some "normal" plastics in with some Gulp alive worms, neither the non-gulp or the gulp worms were usable after two days.

    That was 2 years ago, so take it for what it's worth.

    I use the following container found at Wal-Mart for my Gulp Alive. I just got it for the Gulp but we have used them in the kitchen for the last 3 years without a problem. It's watertite and has 4 locking side clips. It is similar to tupperware so if ya drop it it bounces. They make a varity of sizes and cost between $3 to $6.

    I'm so glad you posted a picture. You mentioned these last year and I never knew what you were referring to.

    Now, if I could just figure out the screw-top soup bowl that Kearney-area Chinese restaurants use...

    What's wrong with the containers they come in? They seem ok to me. Is there something I should know? I have yet to buy any, but this year is the year.

    Also, just to verify, don't put any other sort of plastics in the Gulp juice?

    They almost all leak if they tip over after opening in the original container. Not only a waste of an expense, but smells pretty....strong.

    Regular Gulp doesn't seem to cause any problems in the Gulp Alive
    Sauce. Other plastics break down or turn into something else not useable.

    The general consensus is that once the seal under the lid has been broken, the lids leak.

    10/4 people, thanks for the advice. I'll be sure to get some tupperware, I don't think I can stand my nice looking tackle bag to smell to high heaven.

    Thank you all for the help!! I looked at some of those containers in Wal-Mart with the 'clips' on the sides and almost bought some the other day. Kind of sounds like I might have to go that route.

    And as far as being in a Bed, Bath, and Beyond, guess I've been married too long, been in too many stores I would not have normally gone into, and 'gotten' to buy too much 'stuff' to care much about who shops where. Besides, when I'm in one of 'those' stores, I'm not looking for plastic containers....

    "General Concensus"??

    Methimks that 9 out of 10 Dentists (that fish with GULP! ALIVE) surveyed would agree that ALL the bigger GULP! containers leak after being opened!

    Thought I would bump this up to the top. I have the small jars and I found they all leak. Not a good thing to find in my tackle bag. Fortunately, they were in my waterproof pocket so the stink hasn't spread, just in the pocket. Has anyone found a good container for the small jars? I thought I found a 1 cup container tonight at Walmart, but they didn't work out. The Sterilite has a good one, but it's 3 cups and that's too big to store the little jars. The search is on!

    Over on the Shanty, someone mentioned using a wrap of plumber's tape on the threads of the little jars to keep them from leaking. I haven't tried it yet, plan on it.

    I haven't had a problem with the small containers but I keep them upright. I wonder if glass food jars (mayo, baby food, etc) would work??

    I never thought of that, I bet it would work perfectly though. Might have to see if I can pick some up at Wallyworld.

    I try to keep them upright, but a couple of them tipped over apparently sometime during the summer. I may try to rig up a holder for them so they are more stable, going to give the plumber's tape a shot first. Would the plumber's tape wear down after opening & closing the jar several times?

    If you are talking about teflon tape, you are probably going to have to replace it often during the season. I think it would probably work better for long term storage as long as the juice doesn't dissolve it.

    Again I opt for free,...whenever I can.
    The little (plastic) jars that bullion comes in work fine, do not deteriorate and do not leak. I got tired of digging through those Gulp jars that leak anyway and dumped all five of my gulp baits into one jar.

    What the heck,...You gotta stick your fingers in it anyway.

    A small jar like that works great for wax worms too. I got tired of crushing those little tubs in my pocket. A hot needle will poke some holes in the lid.

    I'm not a big fan of having anything glass on the ice.
