Label for more than freezer use.
Yes, these labels do work well for freezer use. We buy large packages of meat and re-wrap the meat in foil. Rather than have a whole slew of unnamed foil packages running around in the freezer we use these. We can put the type of meat and the date we froze it so we can rotate our meats correctly and prevent any freezer burn.
But that is not our only use for them. We have a handicapped daughter who goes to a day hab facility and they will heat lunch for her. We label her containers with the directions for microwaving whatever we put in her lunch each day. The workers at the day hab love the fact that they do not have to guess how to heat the food for her.
We also label containers that we want sent back home with her name and return to home. This way we don't end up having to buy more containers all the time.
Our other use is label our dishes when we are doing Pot Luck dinners or church dinners to make sure we get the right dishes back.

Simply Don't Work
I have read that these labels work on foil and I have tried everything and they don't stick at all. I have tried when the meat/poultry is wrapped and just cold and also have it has been in the freezer and they don't adhere to the packaging. I went into the freezer and I had no idea whether the package was chops or cutlers as all the labels were separated and were everywhere. If you could blow on them and the label can come off to me that is not the kind of adhesive I need to withstand the cold in the freezer. I am not talking about putting them on glass jars or zip lock bags, but reynolds wrap. These labels should be test for very cold temperatures, not like a file folder label. I have purchased others and they don't work either. I don't know who these people are who comment that these labels work; it can't be my freezer and it's not brain surgery. this should contain heavy duty adhesive. I am very unhappy because I can't find anything out there that does the trick.

I have bought these freezer labels twice now and find them excellent for identifying refrigerator and freezer containers. Best to remove labels BEFORE getting them wet, though. Otherwise the glue is a mess.

I love the convenience of having these on hand - no more UFOs (unidentified frozen objects) - but my handwriting is large so I would benefit more from a larger label that also included a space for heating instructions.
