Today I went to the grocery store and one of the items I needed was half & half. I usually buy the store brand (which comes in a tall cardboard carton), but I saw this instead. This is a quart milk jug. One that looks like a baby version of the gallon milk jug. You can’t see, but it even has the little handle around back, just like the big ones.
And you say, “Yeah. So?” First off, this may be a common container some places, but our local dairies don’t seem to use it. Today’s the first time I’d noticed it and I go to the grocery store all the time. It’s kind of neat.
The reason it’s neat is that I have little girls who are of an age to still play with a toy kitchen set. This quart milk jug is the perfect size to use as an accessory for that. So, once I’ve used up the half & half, my girls are getting a new toy milk jug. They’ve already asked me if they could have it, in fact.
Just a little mommy moment I thought I’d share.
Oh, the image came from the Roberts Dairy website, since that’s the brand I bought. It’s not my photo.
