That’s disgusting; I couldn’t drink milk from a bag, even though it’s the same milk, Milk needs to come from a bottle or carton lol.

It’s like trying to drink coke from a cup, it’s just wrong!

It’s just wrong. It’s a mind thing for me. It could be the same milk from the same cow, half put into a bottle and half put into a bag.

I just couldn’t drink the bag one. It doesn’t belong there. It’s like with coke, if you get a bottle of coke, pour half into a glass and half into a mug, the one in the mug tastes funny (try it, I’m serious). Because coke belongs in a glass, just as Milk belongs in a bottle or a carton.

A stupid as it is (not the milk in a bag), that would explain it.

Your comment makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. However different strokes for different folks.

I think it is too funny that people are getting so 'wound up' about milk in a bag. I've tried it before - can't remember where; might have been Germany - and it was just fine. In my opinion milk is milk. I'll be happy with it no matter what container it comes in.

Well, would you drink beer from a bag? Or would you prefer it from the Bottle/Tap?

LOL, Then think of a drink you really like, now, would you like to drink it from a bag? Or would you prefer the normal way? The point is that some things just belong in certain containers, that’s just the way it is.

If it aint broken, don’t fix it!

I don't drink beer either but if I did and it came in bags I would have no problem with it.

You don't drink from the bag anyway, you pour it in to an appropriate container then drink it.

I saw this on the BBC website this morning and had a rueful chuckle to myself. Now my in-laws (who were dumbfounded by the milk bag when over here last year) will get to experience all the myriad delights of a poorly pouring milk jug.

Biiink - did you ever find milk cartons in any other colour than white?

They have been selling milk in bags in Canada for over forty years Canadians don't have a problem with it.

The "If it ain't broken, don’t fix it!" comment no longer holds water, manufacturers are looking for ways to reduce packaging in today's world economy.

Get used to it.
