It’s a longstanding Christmas Eve tradition to leave out cookies and milk for Santa. But what happens if kids pour a big glass of milk for Santa before they go to bed around 9 p.m. – but then he doesn’t arrive until well after midnight? It’s not going to taste fresh, and might even be not safe to drink.
A better idea is to leave out a shelf safe milk box with those cookies. It’s Grade A, real milk that doesn't require refrigeration until it’s opened (no preservatives added). Single-serving milk boxes – similar to juice boxes – can be stored in the pantry for up to six months without refrigeration.
Santa can take the convenient carton with him to sip in the sleigh as he heads on to the next house…without worrying about spilling!
