Does the US sell milk in bags??  I’m from Toronto where milk in bags was the norm growing up, but I lived in Vancouver for a couple years and they thought I was crazy when I told them about it.  They only have bottles or cartons.  

So I’m wondering – does anywhere else in the world have milk in bags? πŸ˜€

Here’s a photo from Christmas… how obvious is it that we’re Canadian? LOL

And naturally my favourite food is poutine, and my favourite chips are ketchup and all dressed. Yum.

@souza_2005:  They are totally worth the investment!  Mine are at least 7 or 8 years old and still look like new. I wore them in tonight’s snow storm and was fine.

@MsGolightly:  I’m from BC and the first time I ever saw milk in bags was at my Aunt’s house in Stratford.  She even had the little plastic jug for the bag.  I still haven’t seen it anywhere other than Ontario.

Haha I love this topic. I had the luxury of growing up in a Canadian border city to the USA so I use both Canadian and American lingo. 

I still think it’s strange that smarties are rockets, they don’t have ketchup chips or all dressed, and apparently kinder eggs are banned in the USA?!

I forgot about another difference… the letter Z! In Canada, we say “Zed” and in the US they say “Zee”.

On our honeymoon (Hawaii), we met a couple and we were exchanging email addresses. We have a Z in our last name and DH was spelling it for for him. DH said “Zed” and the guy looked so confused. It was silence as the guy stared at his phone not knowing what DH just said… then I remembered and said “Zee” and he knew what I meant. He said he never knew that we said that letter differently here!

Maybe we’re more aware of it as Canadians because 80% of the TV we get here is American. When I was little, Barney, Sesame Street, etc. always taught Zee instead of Zed, but in school and from my parents I learned Zed. so I knew there was a difference.

@Ellyson:  I’ve never heared them called coloured pencils lol….as in “coloured” not “colored” lol. I’ve only ever known them as pencil crayons too. Too funny!
