Capri Sun is a gateway juice.

Fermentation is not mold.  Probably both things are going on.

Stop using preservatives! Err, I mean start using preservatives!

PRUUUUNOOOOOO!!!!

Commercially available at last!

A survey on children in a national blind taste test describe Capri Sun as, "The best drink we have ever tasted!"

Made without perservatives? I never drank Capri sun much before but now I think I'll stock up.

Yes bad things happen to food. I am reminded of those people who freak out over feathers found in their chicken. food is still largely what it was 50 years ago, we haven't moved on to fully synthetic substances yet.

Same shiat happens with vitamin water. Look people; if you want preservative free beverages be prepared to deal with the nasties which can thrive in the absence of such compounds!

Don't want to ingest preservatives, and don't want to risk ingesting mold from industrially-packaged juice in a mylar pouch, which has been sitting for an indeterminate period of time in a warehouse or on a supermarket shelf?

Feel free to juice your own fresh fruits.

Blind, in that drinking it makes them go blind.

Feathers?  In chicken?!?  You've got to be kidding.  It's almost like you think chicken comes from some kind of bird...

Hairy palms or drinking Capri Sun, whatever does it first.

but that infringes on my rights to convenience and laziness.  there's no way i can get all that done during a commercial break.  plus, the rocket of juice that shoots out when you finally get that straw in there is pretty entertaining to see.

I drank one that was fermenting back in the day. It didn't taste that bad. It smelled and tasted exactly like stale beer.

4 stars would drink again.

My dad is from the generation of "waste not, want not"  I remember bread getting a little mold on it and him wanting to give it to us kids.
"it's penicillin" he would say.  Thank god our mom was there to keep him from dispensing home grown "pharmaceuticals"

Well, I can't do anything about your laziness, but I have a pink, juice-shooting rocket that might entertain you...

The whole point of this is that you should not stock up. You need to keep low inventories so it doesn't ferment/grow mold like in the article.

Basically treat it like you would milk.

Would you come over and explain that to my wife? She thinks a sale on any perishable item is reason to stock up ... and throw away most of it a week later.

xanadian: Fermentation is not mold.  Probably both things are going on.


Could mold even survive in a fermented alcoholic beverage?

So, lets say I want to make some capri-sun wine.

What would be a good yeast to use?

Pasteur Red?

My kids drink these a lot and while this story doesn't concern me that much, I might stick to the brand that comes in the clear pouch from now on.

Judging from the beers I've seen on frat house windowsills? Yes. More likely it will become vinegar first though.

I can't help but notice that none of those blurbs stated anything about these moms checking the expiration dates on the food they were giving their little preciouses.

I once knew a woman who, before a big storm that was predicted to knock out power over a wide area, was oh so proud of herself being being prepared.  She bought as much frozen and perishable food as her fridge could hold, and she loudly told everyone she could that anyone who wasn't prepared was stupid.

we've stopped using caprisun at the school i work for for this reason, they also would rupture rather easily so the smell of fermenting fruit was common and annoying. Not to mention all of the damn fruit flies that it would attract in the warmer months.

Same thing happened to me about 20 years ago.

I recently tried a different kind of bread than I usually buy. I went to make a sandwich about a week later and there was mold all over the entire loaf.

And I thought I was going to save money but ended up throwing most of it away. It's back to the expensive brand of bread for me.

Never had a fermented Capri Sun as a kid, but I did occasionally get a bottle of apple cider that had started to carbonate itself.  Them shiats were goood.

Capri Sun should label the stuff "kombucha-style probiotic fruit beverage" and market it to hipsters.

Capri Sun: Now with more punch!
 
2013-02-06 11:44:29 PM
WAAAAAAAAAAAAH: It has no preservatives and goes bad when its opened!
WAAAAAAAAAAAAH: It has to many preservatives and never goes bad!

Gross. Still probably tastes better than Sunny D.
