What is limited edition Mario Milk in Star World?

March 10 is recognized in geek circles as “Mario Day” due to the abbreviation for March (Mar) and the number “10” sounding a lot like the heroic plumber’s name. Similar to May 4 being “Star Wars Day” because it sounds like that the strengththe day itself is just an excuse to have fun and share your love for an iconic fictional character.

But if you’re one of those people who think outside the box to make some extra money, you could use the day as an excuse to sell a limited-edition item that fans would get a good laugh out of. All you need is a gallon of milk with an expiration date of March 10th and you can gift it as “Limited Edition Mario Milk” for…wait, $1,000???

Where the hell did this milk station come from? !

The first post I could find about this so called limited edition milk is on Reddit back in 2018. The post highlights the $240 sell post, but as we can see from Twitter user Curio Kujo (who’s @/CursedMario, lol, what a perfect handle for this situation) there has, at least, three more attempts to sell milk as a collectible due to the March 10 date. While it’s easy to stare in awe at that $1,000 sale price, I can’t help but laugh at the $100 milk because of the added incentive to sell it at the “best deal.” .

Now you might be wondering why, oh why, would anyone think that makes sense. I will tell you why. It’s because of Mario’s history with milk. You see, there was a time when Mario struggled to take a leap in Super Mario 64—Whomp’s Fortress, to be precise. The solution? Drink milk. It helps you grow better than any mushroom.

Clearly, these sellers were just tapping into the nostalgia of an old milk ad. There is no way to do this in a desperate attempt to scam some people with their coins. What, are we just supposed to go to the grocery store and buy milk that does NOT have the MAR 10 stamp on it?

It’s the most Friday thing I’ve ever seen and I love it.

Alright, here’s something you can actually do to celebrate Mario Day

From what I can gather, Nintendo has been celebrating Mario Day since 2016. From silly videos like the one posted above to partnering with Google to include Mario in Google Maps, the company is always doing a little something on March 10th. This year is no exception, so here are a few things to celebrate Mario that don’t include stale milk.

  1. Several Mario games are currently on sale until March 13!
  2. New expansions and Lego characters have been announced for later this year, including my daughter Princess Peach!
  3. Super Nintendo World was announced here in the United States with its grand opening in Universal Studios Hollywood in 2023!

And of course lots of cool art, cosplay and photo editing throughout the fandom.

No spoiled milk is needed to enjoy Mario, but hey, I’m not your Mama Peach, Bowser Jr., so do what you want.
