Default Ever ferment weird things just because they're around?

After a long few days of camping, my wife and I happened to get left with a box of Capri-sun juice boxes and a can of frozen pina colada mix (both of which we'll never use). I was racking my cider a few days ago and just when I was about to rinse all of the spent yeast out of the carboy... a thought popped in my head. I'll let you know how my capri-sun/pina-colada/white labs english cider yeast creation turns out

12 juice box pouches and one standard-size can of concentrate. It's a little under a gallon total. There's plenty of yeast in there so who knows? If it turns out good (or at least drinkable), I was planning on playing off of moon-shine and just calling it sunshine

I wonder if there are preservatives in either of those that would prevent fermentation.

Fermentation is definately underway. It actually looks kind of funny seeing a mini krausen foam head in a one-gallon jug of capri-sun

I have a strawberry rhubarb concoction going right now. Kind of a knock off of a hard lemonade. I had no other yeast in the house so I used bread yeast. Definitly fermenting, and smells pretty good. I plan on bottling and carbonating as soon as it stops bubbling in the air lock. Have to see how it tastes. I plan to sweeten with splenda before i bottle.

The best part is it cost me nothing. Had plenty of berries and rhubarb at the house.

if it flops, i can always give it to my 23 yr old brother in law. he'll drink anything that will get him drunk

I'm still scared to make my "Aztec Beer", though I've got all the ingredients.

Dark Agave + Corn + 2-row + Cocoa Nibs + Ceylon Cinnamon = ?

Wait, that's not the one where you get a group of people together, and you each cew the ingredients and spit the masticated stuff into a container, and let the mouth bugs ferment it, is it?
