    Have a question. Whatever happened to the little wine cooler type individuals they had in the late 80’s. I got my hands on a couple 6 pks when I had my 1st child in Aspen, Co.
    My mother searched all over Arkansas and found the only 2 she could come up with. Because they didn’t supply them in Colorado, that I could find anyway. By the time I moved back to Arkansas, couldn’t get them their either.
    Does anyone know? Thanks.
