This has been done MANY times before. I think at least 10% of first-semester Graphic Design students have done a package like this.

I bought my mom a pack of very expensive flowering teabags (not this particular brand) and they did NOT look like the pictures on the packaging. They showed dainty flowers floating on top of the tea - what you got was what looked like a giant drowned spider on a string #floweringteamyass

#10 Milk Carton Changes Color When It Gets Closer To The Expiry Date

Really bad idea. Imagine these cartons in stores, all altered with varying sizes of this "warning" colour. It is a spoilage indicator, and even 10% of it on a carton is enough to make customers cringe and walk away from it.
