Nice Stuph! 

If I had the first clue how to 'post pix' I'd accommodate yer request; but, sadly I haven't.   I do however, have some decent bottles in the bunker. 

Nearly all the "unicorns" have been opened and poured... mostly shared, I'll add.    I find the very best way to experience those is to share 'em.

Another great thread!!!!!  You have a pretty nice stash, there.  Maybe, you could retitle the thread: Show us your stash!  I love the juice.  Here's my bottle pics!!!!!  Only 1 LE, but I'm always huntin'!!!!!!

It was when I first opened it.  Almost undrinkable.  So I closed it right back up and stuck it way back in the fridge on the bottom shelf and didn't touch it again for 6 months.  It's now nectar of the gods...

You should try decanting it, I have notice this helps with Simply Grapefruit, also a few minutes airtime.  If that doesn't help I recommend  a blend with Simply Lime.

You should have stocked up when it was GMO stated.  Its just not the same since they went Non-GMO.  Personally I drove around to every metro Kroger and snatched up all the GMO stated Simply Orange I could as soon as the rumors started circulating that they were removing the GMO statement because they're a big corporation and they act all corporationy.

Sweeeeet!!!!!  Nice pick-up, E!

 

Check out my herd of orange cap Elmer's!  Some crazy good juice, here.  Those School Glues are a 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and the epic 4th grade bottles.  I preferred the 3rd grade myself, in a SBSBS vertical, though.  All were much better that that "spray" Elmer Craft Glue.  Very over-rated, and over priced for what it is.  

And, your eyes aren't deceiving you.  That's the legendary dusty "red" cap Birthday Express Private Selection bottle.  It's NDP juice, but undoubtedly Elmer juice, IMOH (BE won't say, claiming they signed a non-disclosure agreement ...). Picked up that bad boy in a small store in Elmyra.  It lives up to the hype though, I'll tell you.  Still pours with a sweet, thick viscosity, but never clumping.  They just don't make them like that anymore.

I wish!!!!!  Unfortunately, this is just the 2015 Ariel the Mermaid LE.  I've heard the 2017 blows it away.  Not as heavy on that briny note.  The '15 is still good juice, though...

By the way, can anybody point me in the direction on how to decipher AquaBall cap codes?  I can figure out the "Best By" info, but not the info above that...

I love this thread the best! By the way I think I'm not an expert but I think I saw a Reddit thread on those Aquaball Laser Codes but I can never figure out how to navigate that site.

Hey, I found this rare bottle:D in the back of the cabinet and thought maybe a few of the veterans above could help me identify it.  I'm willing to send samples if interested.
