Milk in a bag at Sainsbury's - Telegraph

I do. We got milk in a bag when I was kid. We even had that exact same pitcher to put it in, except ours was a kind of orange-red color, almost like ketchup.

We were talking about this at work today. It was the woman from Canada who brought it up. Everyone else, except for me and one other Canadian, was oblivious to milk in a bag. Is this a Canadian thing? And if so, why do I remember it form my childhood?

    In Czech Republic (ex Czechoslovakia) it is matter of 80’s and mid-nineties, although there’s two dairies which still produces milk in plastic bags. For illustration I attach scan of 80’s milk wrapping.

  • Thirty and Thrifty: Qwik Trip milk in a bag?

    Must be a regional thing. Only many of the peop I work with are from the same area on Metro Detroit, grew up around here, and never heard of the milk in a bag but I had. They all though it was crazy.

    When the subject of milk in a bag first came up I assumed they were talking about the big bags that they have in restaurants, you know. I worked in a place like that, where we had to insert these huge five-gallon bags of milk and chocolate milk, which was very cumbersome, sort of like that scene in Fight Club when they are stealing the big bags of fat. And trust me, more than once I was sprayed with milk.
