It's a jelly beverage from Japan called Daybaby. Apparently, jelly drinks are becoming quite popular there as a substitute for breakfast and often come in pouches. I found some good photos of the product.

The package I used was strawberry but I have a lemon flavored one I haven't opened yet. I took a few sips of the drink and promptly squished the rest into the sink. The consistency was pretty disgusting but the flavor was OK. If you want a really good idea of what you're in for if you try to drink one of these, check out this You Tube video of another jelly drink.
I found some here at Uwajimaya in Seattle. Pretty nice little fuel bottle, at .35oz for a 5.3oz capacity bottle with a narrowish spout. Mine was lemon - its pretty gross, like drinking half melted jello. But something kept drawing me back to it, and so only half of it went down the drain. (I also loaded up on all different crazy shaped & sized japanese cans.)

Sweet! You know that video I posted of the guy pouring the jelly drink into a cup? Yeah, that can was pretty cool. 8-) Did you see any like that at the store? Or textured cans like the one I saw posted around here somewhere?

Ok, folks. I've built a new burner based on Zelph's StarLyte. I jokingly call it my Lyte-like stove in my thoughts.
All that's left now is to attach the fuel feed pipe to the burner.

The I.V. Stove 2 Burner Assembly photo set is on Flickr.
I've also got a short video of the first burn on YouTube.

The burn was 10min 28sec with .5 US fl ozs of HEET. I used two cups of room temp water in a Heineken pot.
I don't think I achieved a rolling boil but the water was scalding hot with some air bubbles in it. I believe that if I follow Oops' suggestion of knocking a rung or two of the pot stand I'll get a rolling boil.

Here's a shot of the water after the near boil.

If you mean the round object above the Heineken pot filled with water, that would be the new burner and the Heineken lid is below the pot.
Here's another shot of the burner.

The burner is based on Zelph's awesome StarLyte.

Yep! I even bought one. They have a number of similar cans in a variety of sizes & shapes which (like that one) have flat bottoms (kind of like how tin can bottoms are, but they're aluminum).

I think I saw some textured cans but I don't remember why they didn't intrigue me enough to buy one. Usually I get one of everything. I'll take a peek next time I'm there.

If anyone's interested I'll post a picture of some of the unusual & fascinating :ugeek: containers I found.
