They changed my juice box lid!


One of life's little trauma is when something you took for granted is suprisingly taken away. That happened this week. Ocean Spray redesigned their 1-litre cranberry juice box lids. The old boxes had a lid that hinged at the back. It could be opened all 180 degrees and the mouth placed directly over the opening. One could get a quick refreshing hit of cranberry juice without dirtying a glass.

Now, as you can see, the lid is hinged in the middle. It means that if I place my mouth over the opening, I close the lid and either dribble cranberry juice down the front of my shirt or can't get juice out.

I want my old lid back!
