Gazpacho in a milk carton - idea for Trader Joe's or... whoever will do it

I know a lot of Chowhounders will say yuck... but I was in France recently and we went on a picnic and someone brought along gazpacho in a carton. We had gazpacho shots! It was wonderful and refreshing. Unfortunately gazpacho this side of the atlantic is usually not that great. Usually it is too chunky and on the bitter side. It could be the European cucumber with a thinner skin. I don't know why. I think it might be because the Spanish add a bit of bread crumbs or maybe it is bread to the blended gazpacho and it makes it less bitter and really savory. You buy it in the refrigerator section. I think if someone could copy this on this side of the Atlantic that it would be a big success. But it has to be refrigerated and fresh.

I will try to find out what brand it was.
