Capri Sun and other juice boxes were the best part of lunchtime when you were a kid. So why not recreate those moments now that you’re an adult? Sure, you could go out and purchase yourself some juice boxes (although you may get some weird stares at the checkout aisle) or you could drink whiskey out of a pouch instead. There we go! That’s the ultimate form of adulting right there.
You have the Whisky Me subscription service to thank for the most “feel like a kid again” adult beverage around. They package whiskies from around the world in pouches and ship them right to your door. Once you’ve received the package, you can pour your whiskey into a glass or, you know, drink straight from the pouch if you please. No judgement here.
The company only ships to the UK (hence the spelling of whiskey without the “e” in the company name) at the moment, but their website hints that restriction is only “for now.” So, here’s to hoping they expand to include an American audience sometime soon.
Based on the reactions online, adults everywhere would love to get their hands on this very adult beverage. Some people are proud that they’d be less likely to drink whiskey from a pouch today than they would have been in their college years:
I’m not sure what number poor decision I would have to be on before I got to “drink whiskey from a pouch,” but it is comfortably farther down the list than it would have been in college.

But there are plenty others who like the idea of this childhood “upgrade”:

You’ve got to admit, whiskey pouches will make you all sorts of nostalgic. Cue the Capri Sun flashbacks:

If you’re bummed that you’re not in the UK right now, fret not! If you’re resourceful, you can still drink your booze from a pouch thanks to refillable pouches on Amazon.com.
These even come with straws and retail for just $8.99 for a 50-piece set.
Ready to feel like a kid again? Drinking from a pouch should do just the trick. And if you’re in the mood for more throwbacks, check out these Moscow Mule-flavored gummy bears, too. Who knew combining adult beverages with kid classics could be such fun?!
