    No, you fool! Something interesting, not "something interesting."

    Don't listen to the voices in your head, unless they tell you to burn stuff down - that is ok.

    Did you know that milk comes in bags in Canada? That interesting enough for you?

    They're in the UK too. I've been tempted but I just know I'll burst it all over myself or something.

    Speaking as someone who handles these kind of milkbags on a daily basis where I work, I cannot put into words how much hate me and my fellow workers have towards these kind of bags.

    Death thought about it.

    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.

    We have milk bags in cafeterias in the US, you only see them when the dispenser is being refilled, but they look really hard to deal with, also gross.

    Here in Argentina milk is mostly sold in bag. They aren't uncomfortable to deal with or anything. Perhaps I'm just used to them.

    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.
    All times I have enjoyed greatly, have suffered greatly, both with those that loved me, and alone.

    The term "milkbags" brings something much more pleasant to mind.

    It 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.

    How come people stereotype all the time? Stop stereotyping! Milk is fine here in the UK.

    It's a 150-year old technology actually pakoito.

    It might have taken another 135 years to reach Spain.. *flee*

    Anyway, did you accidentally get skimmed milk? That's more water than milk in my limited milksperience.

    So wait, us Brits and Norwegians have been drinking grass and poo tasting milk all this time? Shit.
