they are kind of inconvenient to pour out of and super inconvenient to drink straight from but like I get why they do it and it's good milk. It's cheaper and lasts for loving ever, I can't go back to non costco milk.

Never. Those milk jugs suck donkey dick and they are one of the only things at costco that sucks. Costco either needs to sell a screw on spout that will prevent the spills or use a normal jug again.

Yeah if those jugs crumple in just the right way (which isn't all that hard to achieve) they will leak like crazy.

But here's the question. You put that poo poo in your cart, and then in your car for a 10 minute drive back to your house. Then, into you fridge. Where are you putting your milk in such jeopardy that it leaks so much? I'm not a packaging engineer but it surprises me that goons are putting their milk through a gauntlet of danger to get it home.

Returned 3 week old bananas that were still green and hard. Return clerk was PISSED that Dole would provide me with such unworthy goods.

She then helped me commit credit card fraud as she gave me cash when they were purchased on my Mastercard.. Double cash back for them naners, sup.

I think it was just easier to give me $1.59 (just enough for a dog, coincidentally) than to look up the transaction, but I choose to believe it was righteous fury.

If you want to go the extra mile, buy the 2-pack gallon of milk and cook 1 gallon into yogurt and drink the other. I can down 2 gallons as a single person this way (for under $4 wowee zowee)

No, it's the flat top jug that leaks whenever you pour. It is because of the design on the jug, not its physical strength.

Trip from the car into the house is when the milk is most in peril in my experience. Maybe we'll have to do like the Canadians and put our milks in pitchers.

Pretty sure my Costco has milk in regular jugs, sold in 2 packs in cardboard. I've never seen the flat top design.


Making greek yogurt with a gallon of nonfat milk is awesome, doesn't take too much effort but does eat up alot of fridge space. Heating/cooling in instant pot takes like an hour, 7 hours in instant pot doing its thing, 8 hours in fridge cooling, few hours straining in fridge. Its way cheaper than buying greek yogurt on its own and with some protein powder mixed in its tasty too.

This whole discussion prompted me to call my local grocer and find out that a gallon of milk at the cheapest non-Aldi grocery store is $2.89.

We only buy organic milk, and we buy it by the half gallon at Aldi but it's a bit more expensive, like $2.50 for a half gallon.

I don't know what a non-organic Aldi gallon runs around here, because they won't let you call the individual stores directly.

I could pay 50-100% more for food that's over 5x more likely to be recalled as a health hazard because the definition of organic mostly revolves around using outdated fertilizers and pesticides, but I don't.

I buy the cheapest, shittiest milk I can get my grubby hands on since I mix it with protein powders made of powdered dog turds or temper it before making it yogurt anyways. Don't really drink milk on its own.

I'm imagining a dril-like scenario where people are going in debt because they keep buying organic. I'd hope a double doctor could afford to do whatever they want.

I've been buying Costco milk since I got my membership back in 2009 and I've never once had an issue or come anywhere close to spillage from the jug when I pour it. I have no idea what is wrong with all of you, but clearly Big Non-Costco Milk has gotten to you.

I don't go out of my way to eat organic or anything but if it's the only option I'll buy it, it's fine and good usually. :shrug:

The terrible milk jugs are the only thing at our house of worship that I will speak ill of. But I understand why they are that way, to make it easier to stack on pallets.
