I just don't understand why they exist. Is there something wrong with milk bottles/cartons? Have I been unable to reach peak milk pouring efficiency all this time? Surely some Canadian RPSers have an answer to this, or at least an apology to offer.

I'd guess that it uses a lot less packaging - maybe biodegradable plastic for the bags? You'd only need one jug, so it would save you money in the long run. That's my guess. I bought one a couple of months ago; worked pretty well.

I saw a milkbag in the fridege in our house once and was profoundly confused for at least an hour afterwards. Thankfully I've since recovered from this traumatic experience. The fact it was fully skimmed milk made it all the worst. How anyone prefers that junk is beyond me.

The jugs can be recycled, the cardboard cartons can be recycled and the bags can be recycled. Doesn't really matter what you make it out of if it's going to end up in a land fill because no one is going to recycle - frankly I'd rather the landfills be filled with the cardboard kind. My guess is the bags are simply cheaper to make, and they can make more money because obviously the price isn't going down.

In the states, I've noticed all sorts of crap like a 5 LB bag of flour is now really 4.5, but costs the same. Ditto that sort of strategy for sugar, coffee, oil, etc.

271It was like that here. 20 years ago.

How come some rich countries such as UK or Norway have so lousy, bad tasted milk? It's like the farmer never cleaned the cows tits, and makes the milk watery and taste like grass and poo. Lasts one afternoon outside the fridge and two days inside.

Pasteurization, seriously. Milk tastes cleaner and can last months outside the fridge, in summer, in Spain. It's 15 year old tech, cheap enough for everyone here to have it.

They've recently started selling high-pasteurised (not sure about the translation there but it's heated to a higher temperature for longer..) milk here and I thought it smelled a bit strange (not bad, just strange) which put me off a bit. The low-pasteurised milk that's standard doesn't really smell anything and I don't see why you'd need milk to keep for more than a week or so in any case.

In related news, did you know they've made great strides in dried milk recently? (The powder you add water to). It used to taste awful like 10 years ago, but now it tastes almost like normal 2%! if you aren't paying too close of attention you might even be fooled for a minute or two

We keep some in our pantry for those times you run out of milk and are just too tired to drive 5 minutes to the milk shop

Being at uni and only using a certain amount of milk I've always wanted a 3 pint full of milk, you see a 4 pint is to much and goes off after awhile, a 2 pint is definitely to little, i get through it in about 3 days. a 3 pinter would be that good sweet spot in the middle, but no one does them!

Does any other country do 3 pints? If so i will have to emigrate.

PS. You have to love a forum that can have a thread about the misogynistic connotations of the term 'cocksucking' and a thread where people post pictures of milk containers peacefully coexist.

One liter is three standard 33cl cups (A third!) or four small 25cl (A quarter!) ones. A bowl is half a liter. You can easily calculate with precision when you have to think about buying more: when you poured a glass from an open brick that still weighs.

What I don't understand is why I can't take my empty milk container back to the supermarket for reuse? It's still got plenty of life in it! Plastic bag milk schemes are piffling. short-sighted and trite. They typically come paired with some solid plastic jug that you use in concert. So eventually the jug will get thrown out, added to all the plastic milk bags. Just like that cardboard nonsense - the super thick wax/whatever coating to make it water tight means that cartons of milk are nigh on unrecyclable. Posh soup comes in the same container and it's bollocks - neither fresher nor better for the environment than a sodding tin can.

And skimmed milk is total bullshit. Notice how few people that drink skimmed milk are slim? Fucking cud munching spoon feeders.

Worst thing in England though is just how fucking little we pay for milk. I mean it's basically stealing from farmers. And it will force in the kind of intensive milking industry that I believe America has. I keep buying pointlessly expensive milk just to make a point (it also happens to be creamier and nicer).

Where the hell did that unexpected milk rant come from? Have fun deciphering the genuine points from the self-aware over the top comedy anger!

Epidemiological studies show that dairy still increases risk of all kinds of disease, even if you don't get ill from it immediately. I would recommend almond or even hazelnut milk to anyone concerned with the health risks(immediate or otherwise) associated with dairy. It's delicious, and you can get it in vanilla, chocolate, or plain. It's also typically fortified with tons of vitamins and minerals essential to any healthy diet. Makes cereal so much better.

@Heliocentric

Try that vanilla latte with vanilla soy. You will never go back; I guarantee it.

@Skalpadda

Epidemiological studies show that dairy still increases risk of all kinds of disease, even if you don't get ill from it immediately.

And there have been plenty of studies showing positive effects as well, like lesser risk of some forms of cancer and diabetes, not to mention it contains a lot of nutrients that are hard to get otherwise, unless you really enjoy eating broccoli and spinach every day.

I've worked for a couple of years as a chef at a preschool (kindergarten? Not sure what word you use in the UK) so while I'm certainly not an expert in any way I'm not coming from a position of complete ignorance. I haven't seen anything indicating that normal consumption of milk (1-3 glasses per day) has negative effects you need to worry about unless you're lactose intolerant, allergic or one of the weird people who seemingly spends half their waking hours worrying about what they eat (which I think would have far more negative consequences in itself).

Edited for accuracy. It's easy to make people sound crazy when you misquote them, outoffeelingsobad. =)

Actually I think the key word is "worrying" there. Jesus says (http://bible.cc/matthew/6-27.htm) worrying does not increase lifespans! *Thinking* about nutrition is possibly a good idea. But I side with Jerry Lewis (and Link from the Ocarina of Time) on this one -- I'm going to finish my milk.

I wasn't and my apologies if I offended in some way. Thinking about what you eat in the sense of a varied nutritious diet balanced against the amount of exercise you get is certainly not a bad thing but I do think there's a tendency towards hysteria in a lot of cases these days where everything is treated as a toxic substance that needs careful regulation, often by people who haven't bothered to read anything more than the headlines of evening newspapers.

One of the most common anti-milk arguments I've heard is simply that because milk is made for baby cows and not humans it must be bad for us, with no other arguments attached. It's hilarious because nothing we eat, bar mother's milk for babies, is specifically designed for human consumption. What it does mean of course is that we probably shouldn't base our entire diet around dairy products and try to find out more about it.

Anyway, milk.. this one won a competition a while ago:

When I was growing up we lived in a farming community and uysed to get fresh unprocessed milk from a dairy farm down the road. You would not believe how much creamier and tastier it was compared to what you buy in the shop. You'd have to shake the bottle or the opening would clog up with milk. It's sad that even "full cream" milk in the shops has had most of the cream removed.

Bags are easier and cheaper to make. They use less plastic than other vessels. Easier to change the production process for different sizes of bags. They produce less waste. They're easier to recycle. They're easier to transport. They're less fragile than cartons or glass bottles.

In the the wide-open bits of the US, a lot milk is sold by regional dairies who have ironed out some sort of mafia style territory system. A couple of national syndicates will try and elbow in every so often, but they can't touch the local prices since the cows are usually within a couple hundred miles of the stores. Watching with their big sad eyes.

Anyway, you can get different milk packaging just by visiting the grocery a few counties over as a result. Also different flavors of ice cream and various cheeses. Someday the MILK LORDS will take over, but they'll have a fight on their hands.. hooves.

I can't tell if you're serious, or making a joke, because that is f*cking ludicrous.

Plastic bags as a vessel for selling and supplying milk, compared to other methods, are at worst mildly inconvenient and at best cheaper, more ecologically sound, easier way to do it.

Plastic Hospitals, compared to regular Hospitals, would be sh*t.

Plastic bags for Milk are hardly a change in quality from what we currently have, they still function largely the same way. Plastic Hospitals, on the other hand, would NOT function anything like current Hospitals do.

So, OK. Maybe I was wrong. Maybe you CAN use the same reasons (if you're an idiot)... But, it doesn't mean those reasons will be convincing, as even a cursory look at the situation will tell you.

Just extend your logic, for even a tiny fraction of time Berzee. You're saying that the arguments for A, any A in the world whatsoever, can be used for B, regardless of how wildly, vastly, incomprehensibly different B is from A.

at worst mildly inconvenient

You are a stronger man than I. I suspect that having my gallon carton replaced with a bag would fill me with a sadness too great for words. (I don't feel the same way about manhole-cover shapes, but I might if I used them every day).

However, now that you've brought degrees of inconvenience and other such disadvantages into the problem (instead of only the advantages), of course only the maddest (geniusest!?) of men would attempt such a hospital revolution as I propose.
