I cannot rightly remember when the quart sized milk jug made the jump from glass bottles/cartons to the plastic we all see so often today. I never second-guessed its design or presence, but according to Becker’s it was kind of a big deal. When they first arrived, did shoppers walk blindly past these new containers time and again, shaking their heads and saying, “where are the quarts of milk???” Finally in tears they track down the dairy guy who takes them over to these new space-age containers and their tears of impotence turn to sobs of joy as they finally realize that not only will they have milk, but that the much promised future has finally arrived.
