Just found out Canadians are like the only nation that sells milk in bags. I went to Tom Green's website after reading that Freddie Got Fingered thread here on arfcom. The live video stream started up and Tom is talking about how Canadians don't know they are the only people in the world who sell milk in bags. I had to look it up for myself.

I lived there for 8 months.

They go to Indian reservations and buy cigarettes in bags too

Maybe it's because we're close to Canada, but the Kwik Trip line of convenience stores up here sells milk in bags.

Milk in a bag doesn't make any sense.

Sorta does, in public school we had tiny bags of milk we'd drink. I thought it was just a public school thing.

Not just Canadians. When I was in high school, (almost 20 years ago), we switched from half pint cartons of milk in the cafeteria, to half pint bags of milk. We referred to them as "breast implants." It came with a small, pointed straw to puncture it, like a juice box. I have no idea if they still serve milk in a bag.

ETA: Beat by 2 minutes.

Brazil sells milk in bags (or at least they did the last time I was there).

Also sold irradiated milk in boxes, non-refrigerated.

In Soviet Russia, bags come in milk.

When I was a kid in late 1960's Iowa, the milkman would deliver our milk in a white cardboard box that held a plastic bladder with a spigot. I think they held 2 gallons. My little brother & I thought the spigot was a cool way to get milk.

Anyway, I remember in school we used to have milk in pouches. Never thought an entire COUNTRY would be that ghetto though.

Do you know WHY they come in bags in Canada?
Think about this.

They had AM milk deliveries when I live in Quebec City, Canada.
They would deliver milk on your doorstep at 5AM. It used to be in Cartons.
In the Winter (which is from November to May in Quebec), if you did not retrieve your milk before it froze in the subzero temperatures, the milk would freeze and expand, rupturing the carton. The bags do not rupture as they can leave enough room for expansion.

It's a simple matter of practicality. I remember thinking it was weird when they switched, then the light bulb came on. No more gettting up at the crack of dawn to rescue your milk before certain death on the doorstep. Simple necessity drives many things.

There is the basic difference between America and Canada. Americans see a busted milk carton and, "Fuck. Guess we need a mildly bigger carton."

Edit: I am wondering just how many Engineers I know are in the closet about being Canadian now

I can see the bags for commercial applications where you have a dispenser but for home???. Is there some kind of dispenser that people use or do they just pour it out of the bag.

Shelf stable milk, heated to higher temps during pasteurization and packaged in light/air proof containers. Same thing the military gets in dining facilities downrange.

I grew up there. I used to drink a bag of milk with my lunch.

I work for a company that makes flexable packaging. We had a contract a few years ago to supply film to a prison in Michigan that had a dairy. The prisoners would bag the milk into individual servings and distribute it to other prisons.

I haven't seen milk in bags since I was a kid, I find it weirder to see them in juice type boxes

I will stick to jugs and cartons thank you

That's how it is served at every stateside military chow hall I've ever been to.

Sorta kinda funny story:
A newly-minted pilot received his call-sign, and he was quite proud of it. "The Bomb". However, it was officially recorded as "The BOM". Bag Of Milk.

He was kinda on the chunky/sloppy side...

We must notify the World Canadian Bureau. Then they'll go on strike.

I like the bags. They even give you a free plastic pitcher to pour it from. The milk is less expensive because it doesn't come in a traditional container.
Link Posted: 6/5/2009 4:56:24 AM EST
I went to my 7yo's elementary school to have lunch with him. Their school lunches came with the little half pint of milk IN A BAG. Louisiana not being a traditionally progressive state but a very cheap one, I figured it was a cost saving measure.
Link Posted: 6/5/2009 4:59:10 AM EST
drank food service milk from bags (sysco probably) in the late 90's. In theory it keeps the milk from spoiling by keeping it away from air - in practice the nipples are unrefrigerated and smell like spoiled milk - we went to jugs.

I'm aware of that kind of milk. I just don't normally think of milk like that as boxed milk.
