I can barely remember when milk came in cartons. We've had the plastic bags for more than 30 years. But western Canada still has the cartons. Losers.
Milk last a lot longer in the fridge in the sealed bags, like a couple of WEEKS.

We shop state side for our milk at Aldi's, usually $1.88 a jug. Love those jugs, hate the bags. In our area a bag of milk is well over $4.00.

Me, too. It sounds like Canadians are into some 3rd World stuff. I wonder if their women walk around with sacks of grain on their heads, too? A bag of milk? WTF? Seems like an awful lot of it would get damaged in transit.

No more damage than the jugs in the US are exposed to.

I believe the milk bags arrived shortly after Canada switched to the Metric system, which was September 1, 1979 (I think).
