There has been an annoying box in the back of my car for a long time. A bunch of this and that and some garbage. On a recent trip, I needed that space, so I put the box inside. This morning I fished through the box to recycle most of it and to put the rest away.

I found a bottle of snapple with about 10% left and the lid tightly screwed on. The recycling here requires bottles to be rinsed and the caps go in the garbage. When I popped the cap there was a huge PSHHHHHT! And the smell of wine or beer or something.

If you had been brave enough to take the next step you could have been a millionaire. Or incredibly sick.

Now that I think of it, there are more sick children then millionaire ones, so probably a good move.

"Made from the best stuff on earth"

I didn't know what snapple is :
"There are several people who collect Snapple caps". How do you call them ?

I think that's called "Snapple Cider".

The funny thing is that it has that dread HFCS in it. Not the best stuff on earth.
