Default Sweet find! Grenade shaped bottles

hey guys, i was perusing the local big lot's store (warehousey discount chain) and found my way in their energy drink selection and spotted bomba energy contained in a glass bottle - the cap that comes on it is not your standard crown but regardless, I tested and they will take standard bottle caps



not my picture (the bottles i got have do not hve the top glass "bomba" imprint, but clean pineapple grenade goodness) but these 8.2?oz bottles are sweeeeeet and so easy to clean - i bought out their remaining stock (30 or so) @ 0.60 cents each, and found out by googling that they should be available chainwide. Perfect for a high gravity brew that you want a small serving of, and you can easily make a simple label to band around it and make it even classier. Thought I would give you lot a heads up because after i found them i kinda geeked out at the design potential.
Hope this helps someone

If you can stand drinking the stuff, the ol' Green Grenade would work fine for bottling too. You wouldn't be able to use a standard cap though, these bad boys are wide mouth for easy chugging.

Holy crap llama! Digging up questionable memories of my past. Do they still make that skunky swill? LOL

Bottling in something shaped like a grenade (and called _bomba_) seems to be tempting the fates....
