    I saw a documentary about box wine, it turns out that wine already comes in a massive bag of wine in a truck and then bottled, so boxed wine just skips the bottling step

    Correction on Ben about the Watermelon seeds. You CAN eat them raw and they are very nutrient dense raw. They're one of the most nutritious seeds. But the calorie count is super powerful.

    And all my Asian ancestors just collectively face-palmed. Shells my friends, shells= NOT EDIBLE! Not gonna lie, I love chewing on the shells for the flavor but you eat them like any other nut: THE INSIDE. We actually do use these (unflavored) for birdseed mix (SHELLED). So maybe it's the international shipping (?) but that price is kinda hefty for something kids get handed a decent-sized packet for snack in school. That bag over here would be maybe $3 US.

    I actually fancied that Watermelon wine, until I went to their website, 1st thing 1st, it's a German company so webpage was in a language I couldn't read, (I know I could translate it but I was being lazy). But when I found the online shop on their website, it turns out you can only buy a 6 pack of bottles for €83.40, and they don't deliver to UK right now so it was pointless anyway...

    I take serious issue with the idea that the plastic wine bottle saves CO2 emissions from a glass one. Glass bottles are highly and easily recyclable unlike plastics which can (currently) only be recycled into lesser plastic forms. PET is typically recycled into lesser products like polyester. Recycling PET and producing another form of PET is cost-prohibitive, and is typically not done today. I like the idea of easily shipped wine. Unfortunately for this trendy wine company, cases of wine are already very convenient and easy to ship. This may fit a good niche for small shipping quantities, but daily wine drinkers would help the environment more to purchase cases and half-cases of wine before purchasing this plastic wine product.

    Fun to watch and another great upload! That said, sorry to say this but plastic is not more environmentally friendly than glass... that's just marketing. It might be cheaper to make and square glass bottles have their own engineering issues but even PET is not that recyclable. PET bottles have several layers of different materials and only a part of those is recyclable. When I mean recycling, I mean taking a bottle and making a new bottle, not some lower quality and value item and that not the case with PET. Glass is 100% Recyclable even if it demands more power resources and is reusable without any transformation. And sorry, wine or beer in a plastic bottle is not that great of an idea.

    Foodies, Some call them posh. Some call them utterly useless. I think they look exquisite - but the use of them seems very unpractical. You guys might enjoy cooking and building a dish the fits inside of these masterpieces as well as (and even more so) the drinking of some refined alcoholic liquids out of them. Could you give (some of) the different glass designs by Martin Jacobsen a test run and comment on their use?

    The flat plastic wine bottles will never work for regular retail. Not only is customer acceptance of wine in anything but a glass bottle extremely low but also shelf space is way too precious for retailers to stock wider bottles en masse.

    The flat wine bottle doesnt solve a problem, we already have wine in cartons which are even more efficient in transportation while the neck of such a plastic bottle is still a useless style gimmick taking up a lot of space in packaging by creating empty spaces. ... the only problem with those things are pretentious people dismissing alternative packaging even tho the overwhelming majority couldnt tell a difference in taste and quality if they havent seen in what the food/drink came in. The plastic flat wine bottle might be a good effort to turn a few of those pretentious idiots and producers to actually get away from glass bottles for the majority of wines we drink everyday. But the fact that we need such a silly step in between towards really efficient eco packaging is a shame in itself.
