Broken: Milkbones package

half_openJohn Moorman, Jr. writes:

This box of Milkbones is clearly marked "Easy Open Tear Stip!" However, when one tears it open, the panels underneath the flap are completly glued shut, thereby negating any claim of its being easy to open. As far as I can tell, this isn't a defect of just one box - it has happened ever since they switched to the new kind of Milkbones box. (Also, I have noticed much the same problem on boxes of oatmeal cream pies - they also flap open to another layer of box.)


wtf is a Stip? =P

Hmmm... could be an acronym for:

Scientific and Technical Information Program

Secondary Turbo Inlet Pressure

Secure Telecommunications Implementation Plan

Sensor Technology Insertion Program

Shipboard Tactical Intelligence Processing

Short Term Interest Performance

Short-Term Incentive Plan

Small Terminal Interoperability Platform

Stable Platform and Housing Technology Infusion Project

Stand-In Processing

State Transportation Improvement Plan

State Transportation Improvement Program

Statewide Transportation Improvement Program

Strategic-Tactical Interface Prototype

Or... it could just be a typo that no-one found. I'd go for the typo one.

Almost every box that I am about to open and think "I'm not gonna be able to close this back"...does just like those Milk Bones.

It's a conspiracy for stuff to go stale.

Yes every box of milkbones is glued to death. How about the bugs??? any comments on them???

Yep! The box construction is more important than the contents. I noticed the milkbones are over baked to rock hard. You would think the MilkBones makers were hardening metal. LOL... They could post a label on the side of the box listing the hardness of a milkbone, much like the hardness of a quality made knife using harden metal...RC 54, AUS 8, 440, ATS-34, etc. Anyone into custom made knives would understand this. All others do not have a need to understand how over cooked MilkBones have become, until their doggie cracks their tooth on one. Yes, I agree with John concerning the overglued cardboard strip and flaps, just like the overcooked milkbone inside the box. The makers just don't understand, do they. I-D-I-O-T-S they are.
