While sitting in a coffee shop on our recent trip to Toronto, I told my husband I wanted to take a picture of the shop’s back counter. He looked at me a little strangely and I explained they were using milk bags. He looked at me a lot strangely then. I told him “milk comes in bags here”. More strange looks. I had completely forgotten since leaving Canada many years ago about the wonder of milk bags. It wasn’t really a wonder growing up with it, but seeing it again I wondered why it was such a north of the border thing. (Apparently it’s not, it’s just not such a U.S. thing.) Milk in a bag. Bag in a pitcher. Less packaging. Less cost. How is this not the norm? In fact, it’s such a great thing there’s a website completely devoted to it. You may have to be Canadian to enjoy this but take a minute to check out Milk Bags V.20. It’s funny. In a strange way.
Ah well, this could be a great social debate, but I really just wanted to pass on the wonder of milk bags. Was that a strange look you just gave me?
