    Well, not, that didn’t catch on. A tear-flap on the side?

    Now, of course, we’ve advanced through the “beak” cartons that you unfolded and refolded the cardboard carefully into the “plastic spout with twist-top on a carton” space. Those new ones must drive metropolitan recycling czars NUTS!

    We still have “beak” cartons for milk here in Finland. Some juices have progressed to the twist-top level. They are excellent tinders for sauna oven, though.

    Oh we have the “cartons here in the states too… although, rather than opening the “front” like in that photo, usually it’d be the left or right “side” you’d open, then fold shut when you’re not actually pouring out any milk. Usually the 1 gallon are plastic jugs, and the smaller ones are cartons.

    The quart of half-and-half (half milk/half cream, for those out of the US) that I just bought has this type of carton, but in place of the “lift tab” that’s on this Pure Pack, there’s a twist-off screw lid.

    I much prefer the ones with the screwtop in the middle like Don is referring too. I think it’s probably considerably more expensive because it’s usually only on higher end products like organic half and half.

    On a related note, has anyone else noticed the ridiculous expiration dates on Horizon organic half and half? That’s the reason I buy it. I just bought one that doesn’t expire until Feb 2010!
