Canada = bagged milk?

I just heard that you can't get milk in 1 gallon (or is that 1 litre?) jugs... and that milk is usually dehydrated and comes in bags.

Is this true? or is milk usually in both and you get to pick what you want?

FYI, you really can't buy dehydrated milk around here unless it's for babies.

Canada = bagged milk?

In Iowa (where I am from) there are these little stores in between the corn fields that sells all the juices and milk in bags (no bottles or jugs at all). So Canada wouldn't be the only place.

BWahahaahahah, I have never even seen a bag of milk before. We get jugs or cartons in the vast majority of Canada.

Wow, that's a weird rumor...

We Canadians do have cows and drink plain ol' cow milk, and it tastes just the same as american milk does!

www.lactancia.ca is a popular brand of dairy products here in Quebec. They treat their milk for it to last longer before going bad. I'm sure that american milk companies have similar techniques, right?

Most people buy milk in 1 litre, 2 litres cartons; families usually buy milk bags.

These bags contain the same milk as regular cartons, but are sold as a 2-bag pack that contains 4 litres of milk for a good price. You put the bag in a milk pitcher then cut a corner of the bag out and pour it; some people like to close the bag between uses, others don't (families drink a lot of milk, so it never stays in the bag for long).

Plastic jugs are not very popular up here to carry milk. They're used to sell apple juice, mostly.

Here in the Midwestern US we have one convenience store/gas station chain that sells milk in a bag as an "exclusive", unique,
and money saving alternative: I've never tried it but I've got a friend who loves her "milk=in-a-bag":

I think the theory is that you have a dedicated pitcher for milk. So when you buy milk you are saving on packaging. You just put the bag in the pitcher, snip it open and then later throw away the bag.

That's exactly how my parents have been buying our milk and using the "dedicated" pitcher. The other bags of milk just stay cool in the fridge somewhere. I'm in north-eastern Toronto area. The local supermarkets/grocers carry both the bagged versions of milk as well as cartons (1L as well as 2L).
