Lifejuice and the Tale of the Poor Quality Control

Hi there gang, how's tricks? Today I had an interesting experience with my Fang. It all began with Lifejuice who had a promotion on groupon promoting some kind of goodie bag with numerous bottles of fresh juices.

Upon receipt, Fang opened it with glee to see a neatly packaged goodie bag with six bottles of fruit juices and a jar of salad arranged neatly in a free cooler bag.



Or so we thought.








After a few minutes of praises and general satisfaction of the package in the car, Fang began to notice leaking coming from within the bag. It began to slowly leak all her person and on to the car seat. Eventually the whole car started smelling pineapple-like.

Being in a car, this meant clear inspection of what went wrong is impossible. Luckily my workplace was nearby and we decided to drop by and see what is wrong and clean up this mess.

We got out the car and removed everything, it became clear that something was leaking. We temporarily put some tissues to absorb whatever it was that was leaking.

Side note; the juice actually also leaked through the bottom of the cooler bag. Can you imagine? A cooler bag? Leaking?

Eventually we found the culprit. It was bottle number 5 (bottom cap in the pic) that was leaking. Because of a poorly constructed bottle cap lid thing.

Comparing the level of juice with the other bottles, it looks like quite a substantial amount leaked out of pesky bottle number 5 (Green Tox).

We then tried bottle number 5 together since it's already "open". Thinking we've tightened the bottle cap properly this time, we shook well as the label instructed only to have it leak some more

Well at least the juice doesn't taste terrible. So we have that going for us. Which is nice.

Emergency flood control efforts.

Overall good effort in the juice and packaging but please have the quality control team check your products before you ship them out for 'promotions'.
