TL--I'm sure I told you about my friends who moved to PQ from Denmark and couldn't figure out how one would deal with 4 litres of milk (they had no idea there were 3 bags inside and didn't see a 4 l pitcher anywhere near the dairy case). I have always wondered why there are 3 bags inside, but on the outside bag, the consumer is told 4 litres. Why isn't it labeled 3 x 1-1/3 litres?

This is the milk we had in the Bahamas:



It's shelf milk - no refrigeration needed until after it's opened.

I have some shelf stable milk in the basement for emergencies.

It's useless for making any kind of cheese, yogourt, quark,...

There is a Parmalat processing factory in Winchester, Ontario--about 40 minutes from where I live.

Well, I have a clue how to make any of that stuff anyway (or any real desire), so....

But Addie, I don't have to buy it that way. I can buy it one or two litre cartons or two litre jugs.

Good, I will stick with jugs myself. That doesn't sound right. I am going back to bed.

We camped in Mississauga with the kids on two different vacations. That first vacation in 1985 was our introduction to milk in a bag. The little store we stopped at had special holders for the bags, but the lady said it seemed kind of silly for us to spend money on something we needed for so short of a time. We ended up going back to our tent, washing out the old bottle, and carefully pouring milk from bag to bottle by nipping off a tiny bit of the bag's corner. The second time to Canada, we packed a plastic funnel from home.
