I haven't even HEARD of these things till just now, let alone seen them.  Apparently they have a new design for the gallon of milk, that's stackable, and more compact, which supposedly cuts back on shipping costs, space requirements and such.

Here's a picture of it.


I don't know if they're in my area yet... if only Wal-Mart or CostCo have them, then I definitely haven't seen them (no CostCos around here, and I don't get my dairy stuff from Wal-Mart)

Some customers are complaining about the new design though, saying it's hard to pour without spilling.  I don't know if this is truly the case or if some people are just griping because they hate change.  Although, as someone else has commented, someone will probably invent a screw-on pouring spout for the new jugs soon.

Anyway, if you want to read the article, you can go here...http://www.dailytech.com/Cheaper+Stackable+Green+Milk+Jugs+Cause+a+Stir/article12245.htm

Since I never go to Wal-Mart and the nearest Costco is 200 miles away I reckon I'll never see them. I don't know why we don't go back to the old cardboard milk cartons, bio-degradable and eco friendly. Unlike the plastic ones which last forever and are made from petroleum. Hell what was wrong with the glass ones? Tiny little paper cap and recycle the rest.

Haven't seen them and we get milk from Jewel-Osco so I probably wont in the near future.

We have them here.

They are a little weird to use -- they spill a lot easier because of the flat top, no spout to use.

Our milk comes in bags.  I've been told it is one more Canadian oddity. Cartons and jugs are available, but most milk is sold in 1.3 litre bags (which is approximately a quart: they come by 3's in a larger bag).  Just pop a bag into the handy pitcher, clip a corner and pour.  Waste material is minimal and is fully recyclable.  Easy to store too.  Jugs can be a pain.

Not in my book; I've always liked a good set of jugs.

 Lookingup Walked into that one. For some reason I never expect the Menard.
But now that you mention it: if you are wearing them, they are a pain; even if they are not plastic. So there.

They sell those bags of milk at our local Kwik Trip stores in Minnesota.  Bought one once and the kids were b***hin' about it, the cat bit a hole in it;  Went back to plastic...um...containers.

I saw those jugs on TV and they do look rather cumbersome, but they're doing it save the materials that go into milk crates.

It does look like one of those space savings things that WalMart has been doing. They only sell liquid laundry detergent in the ultra version so that it comes in smaller bottles.  It cuts down on the amount of plastic being used and saves shelf space.

I have a gripe with them about dog food. I buy 40lb bags and they redesigned the bags to be square which makes it a real pain in the ass to pour.

Bags?  Wow.. didn't know that.  But does have the danger of being punctured during shipping leading to a hugeass mass? 

And how do you carry them?  Do they got a handle on top or something?

Just curious...
