For instance CapriSun now comes with a TWIST OFF CAP.


Such BullShit.

I destroyed SO MANY of those old pouches trying to get the straw into that damn hole.


Kids truly have it easy nowadays.

If you were able to figure out those Capri Sun pouches you were hot shit on the playground compared to those who couldn't.

Or maybe the town I lived in was pretty dumb.

Side note:

You could always puncture the bottom of the capri-sun and drink it upside down



Edit: a wizard beat me...

what idiot slides it 45 degrees like that? You just need to slide it at a slight angle, almost flush, for it to go through.

I remember when I was young one of my sisters friends was over. She was thirsty, so we grabbed her a capri, and she asked if it was good. We said ya...... she slurped some up and instantly gagged and said it was gross. Me and my sister were shocked... how could she hate capri sun?!?! I took a taste.... the whole package had turned to vinegar.


Also... this is the proper method.

I seem to recall that I always felt robbed when I got Capri Suns in my lunch because they had less liquid than a Hi-C.

The best thing about Capri Sun when I was growing up was that the slim straws fit perfectly into the larger straws that came with our milk. So we would jam the wrapper from the milk straw into the Capri Sun straw and then slide that into the milk straw making the perfect cafeteria blow gun.

this is far from the proper method, what do you do when you want to put it down for a minute?

I never understood how this happened because I always opened it by squeezing the bottom to inflate and give a better angle top, and then poke the straw in with thumb over the opening to maintain pressure and prevent squirting :/ Then again I also never understood why people open ketchup packets by tearing out the entire side when it was so much easier to just tear off the corner like the dotted line tells you to...

On a side note, I think many kids are permanently dehydrated to some level as I remember always being thirsty since these were so tiny. I never had enough money to get another drink and the water fountain was a death sentence.

I seem to recall having more problem with the Hi-C cartoons because the straws were weak and would bend.



The CapriSun straw was strong as hell, like a little spear.

Fuck Capri Suns and there... what, 6 ounces?

I always squeezed the pouch and then inserted the straw with my finger over the top. Or sometimes I'd just put my mouth over the end of the straw so it squirted right in there. From there it was about 1 to 2 seconds of draining that little bastard was emtpy.

In Sweden I noticed they dub every single fucking teen/kids show these days. When I was a kid we had to know how to read.

I can't imagine how horrible Eerie Indiana would have been as a kid if it was dubbed over here ):

They make it easier because the stuff inside wasn't worth the hassle to obtain by normal means.


Bringing this back would solve this generations juice related problems.

I used to drink Capri Sun by the boatload, and never punctured a single one. Come at me.

Sucks to hear about your poor hand-eye coordination though.
