Well, I'll drink anything out of a bag. As long as it's wet and tastes nice, who cares.

Milk already comes from a bag.

I know it amused me when I first saw MIlk in a bag but it isn't hard to deal with for gawds sake!!!
Thanks Zoe you maid me laugh with this topic. I remember arriving in Toronto in 96 and thinking when I saw it ummmmmm. With a little practice it really is no big deal as long as when putting the bag into the container you ensure it is spotless and kind of throw it up a little to make sure it lodges well into the bottom otherwise the whole lot spills out because of the balance and losing most of it, but maybe that was just my tech skills! but sure is nothing like the good old brit milk bottle

Did someone say milk-in-a-bag?????? What a dilemma this presents me with

Milk-in-a-bag....in the UK?! I was so looking forward to experiencing this in Canada. Should I come across the milk-in-a-bag before then, I am going to avoid eye contact with it & pretend I haven't seen it.

Although who can blame the UK for wanting some of the milk-in-a-bag fun

Luckily after many years dealing with milk in a bag here in Ontario I will be able to assist my friends and family with this difficult problem when I return to the UK in July

When we first came to Canada they had margarine in a bag with a little button that you had to squeeze and squeeze to make the margarine yellowish! And you think Milk in a bag is bad!

I remember that.

Reason was, or at least I was told that it was so they couldn't market it as butter and it wasn't to even look like butter.

It may still be sold that way in Quebec, they're a little more backward there.

Edit: Well look at that, an article in today's Montreal Gazette discussing the possible lifting of the ban on yellow margarine.

I hereby declare you the official 'Milk Ambassador'. I trust you will take your responsibilities seriously & carry out your duties to the best of your ability.

Seriously, I'm off to make a tin foil hat (a la 'Signs'). It seems the UK government has managed to intercept my thoughts.
