B Is For Boxed Wine

B is for Boxed Wine. Yep...I'm a fan. I know plenty of people who won't touch the stuff but if it was so friggen awful, it wouldn't exist. I always have a box (or two) in the fridge...right next to the juice boxes. Which reminds me..the Franzia company hasn't returned my e-mail where I suggested they have a spot on the top of the box for a large straw. How rude.

I started drinking boxed wine when my recycling bin got a little to heavy for me to drag out...actually that's a big fat lie....I started drinking it because I'm cheap. I very rarely pay more than $4.00 a bottle for wine...unless I'm really craving ChocoVine (yummy)....but it was a pain in the ass to load all the those bottles in the fridge....so my hubby took a look at the boxed wine and suggested that I try it....so I did and I have been happily sucking it down ever since.

I personally think the whole idea of having wine in box is a fantastic idea....you can't knock it over and spill it. I have yet to hear of it being used as a weapon....but I have seen someone take a bottle to someones head...ouch. Oh and when it's empty you can hide treats in it so the rest of the family doesn't eat them....hahahahaha!

I may not be able to get all my friends to jump on the boxed wine bandwagon....but I don't give a rat's ass....that's just more for Momma. Peace Out.

  1. I live near Bordeaux France and we have been able to get boxes or "cubi" of wine that were pretty decent - I'm cheap too ;) But the thing is, then we always have readily available wine to drink...all the time. So I didn't buy any for 9 moth stretch, if you get the picture. But now baby is 2 months old, so....
    Good luck A to Z-ing!

  2. Maybe I should consider trying it again...but I gotta admit, I'm a wine snob. I don't pay more than $15, but I blame my parents. They are part of a freakin' wine club and have matured my palette to the point they should be buying my wine. Yes, I just passed the buck. The hiding of treats in the wine box...brilliant, my friend, brilliant.

    1. If you do try it again...try Little Black Box! If you don't like it at least you can hide stuff from the kids ;)

  3. I too love the boxed wine. I can shove in my fridge almost anywhere... it will slide right on top of that pizza box. It's perfect :-)

    1. Right?! Or....I have balanced the egg carton on top of the box ;)

  4. My husband's grandparents always had a box of Franzia for their big family Christmas Eve celebration. The one year I brought actual bottles of wine, I was accused of being "uppity." Back to the Franzia and Boone's Farm, I guess.
