You Can Now Enjoy Your Whiskey In A Capri Sun-Like Pouch

As as kid, we’d inhale those Capri Sun pouches after school or pretty much anytime we could get our hands on one. As an adult, however, seeing hard liquor like whiskey served in a similar pouch makes us cautiously excited.

Whisky Me is an alcoholic subscription service that allows you to try some of the world’s best whiskies without ever setting foot outside, reports BroBible. At $10 a month, 1.7 ounces of liquor is thrown into a pouch (not unlike the ones Capri Sun came in) and shipped to your doorstep.

The only major difference between the alcoholic pouches and the ones from our childhood is a twist-off top. Looks like the days of penetrating those pouches with a flimsy straw are gone.

Unfortunately, this service is only available in the United Kingdom for the time being. Fingers crossed we’ll see it expand to the US sometime soon. In the meantime, we’ll just stick to pouring our alcohol in a glass like a boring grownup.

Hands-Free Pouch Holds Your Pizza In Case Of Emergency

Pizza-Pouch-01
Have you ever been stuck a a convention, or some kind of event where food wasn’t accessible until you sat through a boring presentation? Don’t worry, there’s a pouch that’ll solve your problem. A Pizza Pouch.

Exactly what it sounds like, this triangular pouch acts as a miniature container for your slice of pie. Now, whenever you’re craving a quick-fix, all you have to do is reach down into your pouch and pull out a pizza.

Easy lunch.

The pouch comes attached to a lanyard you can pretty much take wherever you go. You can purchase it at online retailer Stupidiotic for $8. We might have to grab a couple of this. Maybe enough to fit an entire pie around our necks.

Swanky Beer ‘Briefcase’ Carries 4-Pack in Capri Sun Pouches

sixpack1

If you ever have the urge to carry beer around like some kind of blood smuggler, look no further than the Leuven. Created by Korean designer Wonchan Lee, it’s a minimalist, eco-friendly alternative to traditional cardboard or plastic ringed six packs, that allows you to carry four vacuum-sealed PET bags of beer in a way that probably seems way more futuristic than it actually is.

More a frame than a briefcase, the Leuven concept was developed to create a contrasting aesthetic between the clear pouches and black container, and explore new possibilities for beverage package design. In other words, just ’cause it looks cool.

“Differentiation is probably the most important factor in packaging these days as packaging is often the only way to appeal and compete with other products on the shelf,” Lee wrote in his product description, “it has to stand out among others.”

Still, it’s hip, it’s minimalist, it’s green, and if it ever comes to market, it’ll probably also be wildly overpriced. Why wouldn’t we be in?

Capri Sun’s New ‘Clear Bottom’ Pouches Help You Spot Mold Before You Drink

caprisun

Capri Sun, the everykid’s go-to spirit in the metallic blue pouch, also happens to be free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. And while this would normally be a good thing, it also means the drink is notoriously susceptible to mold. Thanks to a nifty new packaging update, however, both kids and parents will be able to see the contents of the space-age juice bags before they come anywhere near their or their children’s precious mouths.

Beginning this month, Capri Sun is introducing a new clear-bottomed juice pack, along with a new tagline that lets folks know they can “See the goodness before it’s gulped.” According to Ad Age, the update came after about a year of development and plenty of concern from parents on social media over the safety of their children’s juice drinks.

“The level to which things are accentuated in social media, it really changed the way we wanted to engage with moms,” Greg Guidotti, a senior director at Kraft Foods, told Ad Age, “We’ve spent a lot of time speaking to the consumer-response groups. We want to offer empathy and offer it with transparency.”

Of course the mold, which develops from the normal process of fermentation due to Capri Sun’s preservative-free formula, is said to present little to no health risks if consumed. Still, better safe (and not totally grossed out) than sorry.

Ready to Drink Frozen Smirnoff and Parrot Bay Pouches Totally Look Like Alcoholic Capri Sun

This intro goes out to all the incoming college freshmen: if (and when) you start to feel small and scared and nostalgic for the playground, Diageo USA has just created the perfect way to get recess-wasted with new Freeze and Squeeze Parrot Bay & Smirnoff Frozen Drink Pouches.

That’s right, it’s alcohol. In a pouch. Get your vodka gummies out.

Full disclosure: these bad boys were actually designed to provide a quick and easy way for party hosts to serve mixed drinks without having to mix anything, and therefore don’t come with any actual straws or straw holes. But there’s nothing stopping you from popping one in yourself (except maybe your date of birth, but hey, that’s what Bigs and RAs are for). So just grab a few, freeze them overnight and get yo’ illegal classroom-drank on the next day—all without ever using a blender or fake ID.

New Diageo Freeze and Squeeze packs come in six flavors, the Parrot Bays being a bit more “traditional” in their range (i.e., Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri, Frozen Mango Daiquiri and Frozen Piña Colada), and the Smirnoffs more innocently disguised as summertime-childhood fare with flavors like Frozen Strawberry Lemonade, Frozen Blue Raspberry Lemonade and Frozen Cherry Limeade.

Granted, as cool as these alcoholic “juice bags” are, they’re definitely not the first of their kind, having been released about a year after cocktail brand Daily’s introduced their own Frozen Drink Pouches around mid-2011. But that doesn’t make them any less fun. Or potentially dangerous.

Both Parrot Bay and Smirnoff Freeze and Squeeze Pouches are 5% ABV and are available in single 10 oz. sizes for $1.99.

A Bagel, With Cream Cheese, and You Can Put Your Money In It

If you’re in need of pouches that look like food you customarily eat for breakfast, let me introduce you to this Bagel Pocket Pouch. This 3-D photo printed pouch looks like a real bagel, with cream cheese, but it maintains two pockets in one convenient magnetic closure.

The individual zippered pouches fit small accessories such as a phone, pens, lip gloss, money and credit cards. Measuring 6.6 x 6.6 x 2.5-inches, this isn’t a male wallet replacer (unless you find a way to dangle this from your waist), but this might be a fun way for you females to hide belongings in your purse.

You should be more wary of strangers taking a bite into it than having your money stolen. Everyone I know keeps a bagel in their purse. Is that weird?

($9.49 @ Amazon)

Photo Realistic Hamburger Pouch

Realism is the strongest feature of this rather awesome burger pouch. The entire unit is made of photo-print polyester with two separate zippered compartments that snap together. When put together, the burger measures 2.5″ x 4.5″ x 4.5″. Don’t put it in your mouth though, it’s definitely not edible…or is it funny or attractive. Okay, it’s kind of funny. ($14 @ FredFlare)
