Ok, so Apparently none of my Australian friends had heard of it before... so here's a poll.

I'll let this poll run on for a bit longer before I provide pictures and such, but it's the Canadian way... and it's probably the best way of doin it too.

Bagged Milk? Not sure what's that. Never heard of this term.
So far, I only know milk comes in 4 forms:
1) UHT milk in the rectangular cardboard box.
2) Condensed milk / Carnation milk in a tin can
3) Fresh milk in a plastic bottle
4) Fresh milk in a galss bottle (don't have this in my country as plastic bottles are more convenient than glass bottles)

Being a North American I feel shamed by asking this, but, what the hell is bagged milk?

ok ok, here are some pics that I took of my bagged milk. I use scissors to cut the hole in the corner of the bags... but there are cutter-things that you can buy.

I think it's only a Canadian thing, and I'm amazed it hasn't gone world-wide yet... or even into the US... anyway, each bag has exactly 1 1/3 litres of milk in them, and they come packaged in 3's (in a larger bag) equaling out to an even 4L of milk.

It's liquid actually. It seems to me totally impractical. I'd spill it so easily; i have dropped the bottle of milk so many times today. I'd be tempted to cut it open and pour it into my own bottles or something...Tell me, CAN you buy bottles of milk there? Does everything else come in bags too???

Is bagged milk cheaper since the packaging should cost less?

It doesn't look practical as the thin plastic bag it is likely to break easily when one accidentally drops it. I think the milk that comes in plastic bottles and cardboard boxes are better as they can be closed and won't spill even you drop them. Tried before. :D

This kind of plastic bag looks like those where drink stores pour drinks into when one orders "take away".

Ive dropped the milk lots of times with no breakage. 4L of milk is around $3 I think. We CAN buy it in 2L jugs, but its more expensive and not really popular.

JKSM brings up a good point: are they resealable?

I've seen and heard of it. I didn't know it existed until I went on vacation in Canada a few years ago.

It's a really weird and cool thing.

Nope, but it doesn't really matter... if it's for portability reasons, have a few glasses, then use an elastic around the top. Then it'll be fairly sealed. You could probably leave a jug of milk in the fridge un-capped and it'd be fine... nothing goes bad with bagged milk (unless you leave it in the fridge for too long... then it'd go bad.)

I never seal mine in any way. Its usually empty LONG before it can go bad or get a funny taste. Then again, I don't drink much milk.
