About

"In Canada, Milk Comes in Bags" is a catchphrase that highlights the unique method of packaging milk in plastic bags, which is still commonly practiced in Canada.

Origin

According to Wikipedia[1], Milk bags had been widely used in the United Kingdom, Canada and several Eastern European countries during the Cold War, but began to decline in popularity after the emergence of Tetra Pak and plastic bottles in the early 1990s. "The Canadian Milk Bag,"[2] the earliest known website dedicated to the topic, was created by S.K.Y sometime in 2004. According to the site description, it was intended as an educational pamphlet for non-Canadians who are unfamiliar with the concept of packaging milk in plastic bags:


THE CANADIAN MILK BAG

I think the most irritating thing of all time (Next to maybe Adam Sandler) is when you’re in the middle of a conversation and you happen to mention milk bags, and the other person is like “WHAT IS A MILK BAG?”, and you try to explain what it is, and how exactly it works but the concept is still a very hard one for them to grasp. So I have decided to take the liberty upon myself and make a site with all the possible milk bag information which can be jammed packed into one web space (10 megs). My goal is when a person is done looking through this website, to have them completely and utterly educated on everything milk bags related.

Spread

Beginning in mid-2007, milk bags became a popular discussion topic on 4chan, leading many Canadian users on the site to post pictures of milk bags as proof for Americans who expressed skepticism towards its existence. [researching]
