A while back I went out for dinner with a friend and we somehow got on the topic of milk. They couldn’t believe me when I told them that we get our milk in bags back in Canada.
They also couldn’t believe that we actually had a milk man who would come in the morning and leave our milk between our screen and wooden back doors! It’s true, we’d leave a little note with what we want and he’d leave it there for us. I remember many times coming home from school at lunch and open the screen door to have the milk fall out at my feet.
Also, in primary school we used to get milk for our little break treat. It was a mini bag with a little straw you’d punch it with to drink it, but some of us just ripped the corner off with our teeth and sucked it out, cuz we were hardcore.
A friend of mine shared this video on Facebook yesterday and I laughed because it’s so normal to me, even after 10 years living out of the country. I think some of my Euro friends might find this interesting though! My friend on Facebook is American and he didn’t know about it until a friend showed this to him… and he’s right next door to Canada!
So yes, in Canada we drink milk from bags. No, I have never bothered closing that little corner and I swear, milk never went off as quickly there as it appears to here. I drank a lot more milk in Canada than I do here, so that may be why. I also just liked the milk better there for some reason. I guess we just have better cows!
