Tetra Brik
So this is something I've meant to write about a few times, especially since I've written so many times about grocery shopping (most recently with Hypermarkets).

See, in Dubai we buy our milk non-refridgerated.

Juice too. They both come in one liter cartons called a Tetra Brik. They're paperboard, but coated with plastic, which makes them fully airtight. That way the milk is for up to about six months without refridgeration. Once you open it, the milk's good for about a week.

It's pretty creepy to me to buy milk off of the shelf and not from the refridgerated cooler. But I guess these Sweedes know what they're doing.

I hope.

For the last thing I want is my milk recalled, along with my Diet Pepsi and my peanut butter ...
