io# troubling trends in dairy packaging

over the past 8 weeks i have had great trouble in properly and effectively opening the cardboard structures that milk (both chocolate and regular) come in.

beverages from cardboard boxes are distasteful enough but stringy, wet cardboard that you can feel on your lips is more gross than tantalizing.

either i am slowly getting stupider in terms of opening dairy packaging or the packaging has become sub par and disappointing.

I like the cardboard packaging.

I usually pour my milk into a glass

Cardboard is better than the plastic because light is bad for milk.

It's also much cuter. Look at the milk carton in the Blur video.

I wouldn't put it past the dairy industry to cut costs by introducing inferior packaging.

On the other hand, it could just be you koby.

And I have no way of verifying that.

Nevermind the fact that there is NO light in a closed refrigerator..but we don't need to get into a whole seinfeld episode now do we.

i drank some fruit punch out of a cardboard container. however, some of it went down the wrong pipe and now i keep coughing occasionally.

the fruit punch was good though. i don't like grape juice but it combined with pineapple, apple, and something else made it taste good.
