    Given how many games and other media have been made about such things... yeah, I'd say it's within imagination of how cool it'd be.

    Locally for me, there is Promised Land Dairy which is doing the same thing.

    While I do appreciate the attempt to be more "natural" and "organic" there are plenty of ways to get red coloring naturally and organically, without having to resort to using synthetic chemical dyes.

    ...also, I don't like Promised Land Dairy's strawberry milk. It has way too much of a citrusy acidic bite to it, which is totally out of place in milk, which is supposed to be sweet and smooth.

    A fool thinks he knows everything.

    Another fool thinks he knows nothing.

    True wisdom lies beyond both delusions.

It won't be as pink as doing it with artificial colours, but I'm sure we can find more of the strawberry pink chemical somewhere.
    Given that they switched from artificial ingredients, I'm willing to wager that genuine strawberry colouring is quite far out of the price range for this brand. I'm even willing to bet that their natural flavours aren't actually taken from strawberries, but rather cheaper plants which just happen to contain the same esters as strawberries do.

    I've had raw milk and I do not regret being alive. In fact, unless the cow is sick, raw milk should not contain any significant amount of germs. That said, you need to drink raw milk fresh, because unpasteurised milk doesn't really have a shelf life.

    Actually, one of the major inventions in milk carton history is Swedish, and you'll find that milk cartons are quite common in mainland Europe as well. In fact, I'd say the Nordic countries have the US beat when it comes to relative milk carton usage. Ours is pretty much 100% of the total range of milk packaging.

    You didn't really have to, though. Expiry dates aren't hard caps, and unless your refrigerator is bad, yours should last for a few more days. It will acquire a taste which I'm not too fond of first, though.

    Actually, the process of making cheese consumes most of the lactose, so most lactose intolerant people can consume moderate amounts of cheese with no ill effects.

    Milk cartons used to be quite common in the UK, too, but they seem to have been replaced with plastic bottles in the last few years. Wonder if the manufacturers will switch back to cartons given all the bad publicity surrounding plastics these days?

    Romans using slave labour over steam power
    The majority of prosthetics development
    All those generals who decided to win their battles instead of having their soldiers fight in time with the Cancan
    Electronic computers over mechanical computers (they didn't get out awesomed for quite a while)
    Sieges
    Egyptian Pharoahs switching from pyramids to underground tombs

    Need I go on?

    Generally in history when something awesome has been done that's either because a) it's actually practical, or b) so much money has been sunk into it already that it's impractical to use a practical option.

    Mecha are cool, but they're so unrealistic that Gundam's agile mecha are less ridiculous than Battletech's walking tanks. It's at the point where unless they're heavy use of boosters to ease movement and the limbs are more about positioning weapons and boosters than actually moving the mecha then I'll just remember how hard it is to build a walking robot.

    Yes, and when you come back calling me a liar, I'll call you a wuss. Not that I'd touch that Stilton myself, cheese just tastes like sour, spoiled milk to me.

    Wuss


    And I'm now feeling down because I can't find a cuddle buddy or anybody that I can do things I consider intimate* with.

    Anybody got advice for getting my mind off this sort of stuff?

    * like cuddling, because touch is an intimate thing even if clothes are on! Oh, and other stuff, I guess.

    My favorite rum, which I thought was discontinued years ago (largely due to the clerks at the liquor stores telling me it was discontinued, and the website not listing any place that has it), showed up at a liquor store close to downtown. I bought 'em out. Tonight is a good night.

    Thanks!

    Fun fact, the brand's website still claims it's not available for sale anywhere near me. I don't know what forgotten crate they found those bottles in, but I'm set for a good long while now.
