Big milk carton.

Milk Carton

The milk carton is now located in Eden, North Carolina.

The new owner of the milk carton used to work at its former location. When it closed, he asked if he could have the carton, and they said yes.

Milk Carton

We live nearby. As the last tip states, the milk carton has been removed. The milk company has moved or folded and the new occupants of the building, Alamance Foods, has sadly been removed, though we do not know what happened to it.

Milk carton.

Giant Milk Carton

Not quite as "giant" as we hoped, more like "very big." It's outside of a PET Dairy building. Seen from the highway.

Disappointed!

Giant Milk Carton

A gigantic milk carton can be seen near exit 145 while traveling along I-85 in North Carolina. The huge milk carton stands in front of the Flav-O-Rich milk distributor, which is located on the frontage road parallel to I-85. The carton is labeled as a half-gallon, but I think it's much larger. I asked a guy loading a truck how many gallons the giant carton held but I received the all-too-familiar "have you taken your medication today?" look with no verbal response. Oh well. The carton is made of metal and riveted together.
