Step 3: Use a Funnel for Easy Filling To avoid spills and mess, use a funnel to pour your beverage into the pouches. Fill them to your desired level, leaving some room at the top for sealing. Be mindful not to overfill.

Step 4: Seal the Pouches Use the resealable zipper at the top of the drink pouch and ensure the seal is tight to prevent any leaks. This step is crucial for maintaining the quality and durability of your Adult Capri Suns.

A Capri Sun wouldn’t be complete without a straw! Place the straw in the convenient straw holes for an easy way to keep the straw on hand for any adventure.

This helps ensure things stay organized and everyone knows whose drink is whose! Get creative and make these Adult Capri Suns yours!
