How to pour milk 101

I dunno....I went to school to learn to read. I took classes to learn to drive a car, and ride my motorcycle. I don't know that I should need a class to pour my milk without spilling it. So, what do you think? Will you buy the new milk jug? Will you be able to pour it? Read the New York Times article about the new milk jug they're trying to get us to buy. I understand the reasoning, but it seems they need to make some other changes. Besides, my kid just figured out how to pour milk, and now I gotta teach her all over!

By the way, according to my husband the meat wholesaler, whenever you see a dramatic change in packaging, you can also expect to see a change in the volume the package holds. He said the next time you guy buy a pound of bacon, or a package of brats, bring it home and weigh it. They can decrease the amount by as much as 4.5 ounces without changing the label, and yet the price is going UP. It all adds up after awhile!

Sounds like a great idea to me. It's mind-boggling to think they're going to save 100,000 gallons of water at one dairy by not having to wash milk crates.

It kind of reminds me of the glass bottles I used to buy. I seem to remembering leaving the bottle on the counter to pour when it was full.

Yes, this is how the milk looks at Costco, so I didn't buy it because it was too different! LOL

We get these from Costco, too, and I can't pour it without spilling it!

Same here. I got the jugs home from Costco and spilled everywhere. I hate them!
