My Kroger brand milk sealer thingy that you pull to get rid of so you can open the milk is gone. Is this some kind of new security feature? I had to take a knife a chop off each little connecter thingy and slip off the sealer just to open it. This is about the fourth or firth time that this has happened. Anyone else have this problem?

I haven't bought milk at Kroger for a couple of weeks, but if it's just a different system of sealing than they had before, it's almost certainly due to bioterrorism fears--upgrading the tamper-proof seal.

I open this thread thinking...oh, my gosh! I thought Anubis was a guy!!

Sorry to hear about your milk troubles, but glad they aren't worse.

I'm not a guy. I realized that problem after I posted this thread.

Anubis clarifies, I'm not a guy. I realized that problem after I posted this thread.

That's okay, I'm not a guy either. And I almost mentioned that the store-brand milk here comes with stickers on the lid denoting what kind of milk it is..."SKIM," "2%," and my ex-husband's all-time favorite, "HOMO MILK". I'm afraid my mental image was of him the time he took two of the milk lids and danced around topless, holding them over his nipples.

And now, of course, I'm ALMOST embarrassed enough not to post this.

And what a use of your 500th post. I only hope I think of something as good as man-nipples when I get to mine...

I've seen the tab-pull device around milk (and orange juice) lids, but the Heinen's/Giant Eagle/Reiter's/etc. milk jugs in NE Ohio have not had them for quite a while (months or years). I still see them on some fruit juice containers (although I haven't studied them in the last three weeks). I would guess it has more to do with manufacturing costs than safety.

We just grab the cap and twist hard (just as one does for bourbon), without cutting the little fasteners.

Corrvin: gee, I thought only Canadians called it homo milk. Anyway, one of these years I'm going as a giant box of it for gay pride day.

I can't think of anyone better to spend it on, M'dear.


More on topic, I went milk-hunting today.

Here in East Texas, on gallon-jugs, the only kinds of milk-caps that I could find were the old "peel-n-pop" variety.

On bottles holding a quart or less, I found both the peel-n-pops and some newfangled thingamajig which almost resembles the perforated ring found on soda bottles.

Of these last, there were two types: Thingamajig A, which has just the perforated ring without adornment, and Thingamajig A-Prime, which has the perforated ring as well as a flattened pull-tab on one side.

Not having a Kroger's in this neck of the woods, my sample group consisted of milk containers from Brookshire's, Wal-Mart, and H.E.B.

As always, YMMV (except with regard to Wal-Mart milk...never drink that.)


I will leave the social side of this issue to Corrvin, as she is better equipped than I to determine the milk-cap varieties preferred by naked, dancing men, as affected by such factors as amount of body hair, percentage of body fat, intoxication levels, and current medications.
