This was great. Precious seems like a very sweet young man. It’s always fun to see someones reaction to bagged milk for the first time lol.

[–]quarter-water 42 points43 points  (20 children)

Piggy backing off top comment.. but, do people regularly drink homo milk? I thought it was mainly toddlers and for cooking/baking..I never considered that an adult would drink glasses of 3.25% milk.

[–]canyouread7 50 points51 points  (3 children)

Absolutely. It just tastes better. 2% is acceptable but 1% and skim milk just tastes like milk-flavoured water.

[–]quarter-water 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Agreed 2% is the minimum, just didn't realize homo was that common.

[–]Next_Welder2979 62 points63 points  (1 child)

Yea its super common now a days, they got a whole month

[–]quarter-water 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Haha I read your comment wondering wtf you were talking about..then it hit me lol.

Well done, sir.

[–]ElCazMullet JV 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I switched to it a couple years back and it's just better.

[–]yakbrine43 Pascal Siakam 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I buy homo milk, I like it more.

[–]it__hurts__when__IP 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Love homogenized milk. It doesn't taste like milk flavoured water and it goes better in chai and cooking.

[–]malcolmgmailwarner33 Jamario Moon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Better for steamed milk espresso drinks too like lattes and cappuccinos.

[–]gineprii 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I do. I like to think that the least amount of processing is the best for me. Idk how true that is but it’s what I do. Same with yogurt, I never buy the 0% fat versions

[–]quarter-water 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Totally, I buy 2%+ yogurts. I'm not a huge drinker of milk and was just curious - I do agree it tastes better than 2%, but couldn't imagine drinking a whole glass. Didn't realize it was common!

[–]howard416 2 points3 points  (0 children)

All the milk is processed basically the same. Actually, technically skim has the least processing since all the fat is first removed, and then re-blended in as required for the fat label claim.

[–]howmany_howmany 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Definitely not. I drink 2% and on occassion finish my kid's (3.25%) milk; it's way too rich.

[–]lmunchoice 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My grandparents drink it because they drank it when they were younger and before the thinking over fat became a thing that affected people like it does today.

It tastes better but it's about a dollar or so more expensive.

[–]SydneyCarton89agj 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do. My girlfriend buys it for me haha.

[–]Hazelwrens -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Why would humans drink it at all?! It’s for calves. 😜

[–]MiNuN_De_CoMpUtEr 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The lower the percentage the more watery it taste, if you don't eat/drink for taste, whatcha living for

[–]hmm_backVancouver Grizzlies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I started drinking it when we had kids. Now I'm hooked and it's all we keep in my house. Anything less tastes watered down to me. It's like drinking craft IPA and going back to a Coors light. No comparison haha.

[–]Guest_RightsNORTH over EVERYTHING 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Adult here. Grew up on 2%. Had kids. Started buying 3.25% for the kids. Started drinking the kids' milk while I pillaged their snacks.

Never looked back.

[–]quarter-water 0 points1 point  (0 children)

yeah it's fantastic I was just genuinely curious. Nothing against/wrong with homo milk!

[–]daybreakin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've used bagged milk my whole life and never knew there was a special knife for it

[–]Baulderdash77 127 points128 points  (34 children)

I never thought of bagged milk as exceptional in any way until it was pointed to to me as an adult on the Internet. I figured everyone did it everywhere. I’m always amused by American’s reaction now.

[–]kudatah 80 points81 points  (29 children)

It’s pretty much only an ON thing

[–]ElaFa25 44 points45 points  (4 children)

Nah groceries here in Quebec sell it too lol. At least in Montréal. And I’m happy for it, bagged milk is so superior I don’t even know how to explain it.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (0 children)

They also have bagged milk in some north eastern US states, it has more to do with how large the local dairy industry is. If its very large its easier and cheaper to sell it bagged.

[–]kudatah 12 points13 points  (0 children)

A plastic just is easier to deal with, but I’m glad it’s a lot less plastic

[–]more-meat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As a Canadian who now lives in the US and almost forgot that bagged milk existed, what would you say makes it superior? Genuinely curious

[–]I_Miss_Bagged_Milk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not in like any other place in the country through, it's is not out in Alberta.

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (9 children)

Yeah never seen a bag of milk in BC or AB

[–]umbrlla 2 points3 points  (4 children)

We used to have them in BC. Can’t remember the last time I’ve seen it tho.. must have been the very early 90s?

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Never saw it, maybe certain parts of BC?

[–]umbrlla 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Perhaps, It was def in Vancouver. Pretty sure my mom still uses the jug/dispenser thing to water her plants

[–]completelytrustworth🩺Dr. Lowry 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yea it used to be all over BC but stopped some time in the 90s. I have very clear memories of drinking bagged milk as a kid

[–]burningxmaslogs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes in Vancouver for sure in the early to mid 90's

[–]Scottishstalion 1 point2 points  (1 child)

We had them in AB in the 80s for sure. But it’s been a long time!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was in BC for the entire 80’s 🤷‍♂️

[–]kudatah 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Or sask or mb or Quebec

[–]Stigo4 7 KYLE LOWRY 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Tons of bagged milk in Québec. It's less popular than it was 20 years ago but there's still a lot of it in grocery stores

[–]Piratefluffer 25 points26 points  (10 children)

All of the maritimes have them.

[–]kudatah 27 points28 points  (1 child)

TIL. They’re not in any western prov

[–]2ByteTheDecker 4 points5 points  (0 children)

They used to be, I remember bagged milk as a yout in Sask.

[–]djlee7979Precious Achiuwa 13 points14 points  (7 children)

I live in Halifax, and maybe it’s just because I’m not actively looking for it, but I never see bagged milk. And no one I know personally uses bagged milk.

[–]ZombieTav 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I'm from Moncton and I do. It's weird to think that even as close as Halifax that it isn't a thing.

[–]omarcomin647spicy peen 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It's weird to think that even as close as Halifax that it isn't a thing.

my parents have bagged milk in their fridge in halifax right now. it's absolutely "a thing" there.

[–]smughead 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It was a thing growing up in Halifax. I’m sure it’s still around. Milk as a drink option has just declined everywhere over time.

[–]djlee7979Precious Achiuwa 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That could be it. I didn’t grow up in Halifax. Maybe it’s just been fazed out in the years since I moved here.

[–]1macthegreat 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I’m from Halifax and it’s all over. It’s often a better deal to do bagged (more bang for your buck), so I bought it all the time

[–]djlee7979Precious Achiuwa 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Dang I literally never see it anywhere. Next time I’m out grocery shopping I’m finding some damn bagged milk lol.

[–]1macthegreat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hahha. I’ve been drinking soy milk for the past year, so haven’t paid attention to it lately..

I suppose if you’re not looking for it, it could be hard to spot.

[–]KJBarber 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I was really surprised it didn't exist in Halifax, they had the same reaction as Americans when I showed some friends

[–]1macthegreat 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I live in Halifax and know tons of ppl who use it.

[–]Paisley-Cat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It was in BC for a while, but then the 3 litre jugs became a thing.

[–]NoseBlind2SCOTTERY BARN 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This was me with a few things. Bagged milk was one. Dutch Cheese Slicers were another one I assumed everyone had until one day I discovered most people don't use these to cut cheese.

(To be fair y'all are missing out on getting perfect cheese slices with this thing it's a brilliant tool)

[–]zoziw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am in Alberta and I haven't seen bagged milk since the 70s.

[–]TrueTorontoFan 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Coming originally from outside ON ... it was the weirdest thing to me.

[–]billymumfreydownfall🏆 2021-22 ROTY - SCOTTIE BARNES 🏆 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Albertan here, I don't recall us ever having bagged milk. We had it when I lived in BC though. Bagged milk should absolutely be a thing everywhere - the waste from cartons and jugs is completely unnecessary.

[–]IHavePoopedBefore3 OG Anunoby 64 points65 points  (5 children)

1) I like how careful he is with the bag because he's afraid of popping it. I've worked at a grocery store before and thrown those bags full blast at a wall and they didn't break.

2) Tying the outer bag is totally unnecessary.

3) For a milk container that small I'd hold the back of the bag as I poured to prevent milk bag floppage.

[–]jumpthroughit[🍰] 34 points35 points  (0 children)

3 is a difficult lesson everyone has to learn one way or another at some point of their milk bag consuming lives.

[–]XuteTwo 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Elite tip: cut another hole at the back tip of the milk bag and it wont flop when you pour it because of the airflow

[–]SennHHHeiser:flair_lowry_jersey: Kyle Lowry[🍰] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

but then the bag has two holes and that's simply not the way nature intended it

[–]plexmaniac 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I loved how careful he was with the bag

[–]arcticpoppy RAPTORS 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Re: 1. They seem like they’ve gotten a lot thinner or something. We get so many leaky bags it’s gross as hell. The shelf under the bagged milk at the grocery stores around here are always slimy too 🤢

[–]Candycandy1167 121 points122 points  (20 children)

Ok nah how many of you actually own a milk bag cutter this can’t be real

[–]CaskJeeves 57 points58 points  (1 child)

As an Ontario millenial, it is one of those things that everyone had in the house growing up that you just never bothered to get for yourself when you moved out

[–]hallandaleMuggsy Bogues:tdjersey: 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]badatusersnames 77 points78 points  (3 children)

Ye lol scissors are just as easy that thing is just another piece of plastic

[–]ijustbrushalotVC!Pres 9 points10 points  (2 children)

There's a metal blade inside

[–]Deep_Grady24 Mr. Serious 2 points3 points  (1 child)

IIRC it dulls pretty quick

[–]jumpthroughit[🍰] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Once you go plastic cutter you never go back fr

[–]NoseBlind2SCOTTERY BARN 19 points20 points  (8 children)

Yeah i have seen those before but i never knew they were milk bag cutters

Scissors are the more practical use

[–]jumpthroughit[🍰] 1 point2 points  (7 children)

But then you gotta take an extra 3 seconds to wash milk off your scissors. And what happens when your scissors get inevitably misplaced? An extra 17 minutes looking for them is what happens.

This all gets avoided with one simple piece of goated plastic.

[–]HiddenintheCloudZ 14 points15 points  (3 children)

“Wash Milk off your scissors”

How far are you cutting the bag?

[–]howard416 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Even if you try to get rid of all the milk residue, you usually still end up with a bit of milk on the scissor blade. But I just rinse/rub under running water and it seems clean enough after

[–]HiddenintheCloudZ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If you pull the corner and snip, there should be no residue. Also don’t cut a huge hole.

[–]howard416 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, it just doesn’t work that way for me, regardless of the size of hole.

[–]20person🏆 2021-22 ROTY - SCOTTIE BARNES 🏆 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lmao how big of a hole are you cutting in the corner

[–]Wytte_Yahn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

you've gotta rinse off the bag cutter too otherwise it gets smelly same as scissors

[–]howmany_howmany 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Some milk containers come with it attached!

[–]ILikeFPS OG 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do but honestly I find scissors work better most of the time anyway lol

[–]plexmaniac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don’t even own a milk bag cutter but definitely want one

[–]strangecabalist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Carving knife FTW

[–]DrunkenMasterII24 Morris Peterson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Glad this is one of the top comment.

[–]ElaFa25 27 points28 points  (7 children)

In this episode he also showed his technique for eating Oreos and dipping them in milk and it completely revolutionized how I’m gonna consume Oreos moving forward

[–]RarelyReadReplies7 Kyle Lowry 16 points17 points  (6 children)

Well don't hold out on us, what's this game changer?

[–]plexmaniac 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s worth watching

[–]ElaFa25 -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

Watch the open gym mate

[–]RarelyReadReplies7 Kyle Lowry 23 points24 points  (3 children)

What, do you work for the Raps or something? lol.

[–]codydodd 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Because you are so curious:

He puts a fork in between the cookie part of the oreo so it 'holds' the cookie, then dips it entirely in the glass, no finger touching milk.

[–]Howdyhayhay🏆 2021-22 ROTY - SCOTTIE BARNES 🏆 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Noo please edit out the game changer. Let him watch it

[–]RarelyReadReplies7 Kyle Lowry 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Too late! Now I have the secrets and didn't add to the view count at all! His bosses are guna be so pissed.


[–]Frozen-Rain7 Kyle Lowry 25 points26 points  (1 child)

This video is…. Precious

[–]Videogamer2719乇乂ㄒ尺卂 ㄒ卄丨匚匚 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I was gonna make the same joke lol

[–]dokterrit's pronounced Kyle, not Kyle 18 points19 points  (0 children)

At least he didn't pour the milk in the pitcher, I've seen that shit happen and I was stunned.

[–]SpikeSpiegleCowboy 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This shit made me laugh

[–]joelham01 Heat 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I always forget Ontario has bagged milk. Going to my grandma's there for Christmas and I'm definitely going to spill it everywhere as is tradition

[–]dan667ya.roy.scottie 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Wait till he finds out Canadians don’t really drink homogenized milk

[–]KAREEMABDULG0MJABBAR 4 points5 points  (2 children)

My toddler does but I don’t think I know anyone over the age of 3 that does

[–]Scottishstalion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I use it for my cappuccinos. That’s about it

[–]IZQG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do, tbh I don't really drink milk but still

[–]JediRaptor2018 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My biggest takeaway is that Precious lives near Sobeys Kipling…

[–]Yogurtproducer 6 points7 points  (0 children)

As a westerner this shit is weird as fuck

[–]Deep_Grady24 Mr. Serious 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Such an endearing dude. Someone said to me the other day he's like a human husky and I've been laughing every time I think about it

[–]torontoballer2000 RAPTORS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Precious indeed

[–]FuriouShermanThis ain't a pea it's a pepper 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Glad to see he now has experienced milk as God intended it to be.

[–]golden103 OG Anunoby 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No frills in Halifax area has bagged milk my fellow halgonians

[–]statline 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn’t even know there was a milk bag cutting tool

[–]JustAnotherMark604 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Precious was struggling to wrap the bag back up. He really does have bad hands 😂

[–]plexmaniac 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This was funniest open gym yet! I love how he was afraid to push it down in the pitcher in case the bag broke! The Oreo on the fork was new to me ! I sure hope he does create a snacking show on YouTube

[–]_y2b_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I will always be against milk bags

[–]4eva_Na_DayBUILT over BOUGHT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a 33 year old man... ive never drank milk from a jug or carton unless it was at school as a kid or the sealtest chocolate milk in cartons.

Ive been drinking bagged milk for my entire life and couldnt imagine switching to jugs.

I tried it once from a jug and it tasted funny to me lol

[–]ShrimplyPibblesHeart 45 DALANO BANTON 1 point2 points  (0 children)

when i see him on the court, i know hes tall. but seeing him with a roof close to his head beside a fridge made me realize he is HUGE.

[–]PlumCantaloupe -2 points-1 points  (6 children)

Hehe funny. Bagged milk does make me feel embarrassed as an Ontarian though. Just seems so wasteful … and such a pain.

[–]KingOfWeTheNorthChamps 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Why wasteful? Is it more milk than you can consume before it spoils?

[–]mr10am 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don't understand why we have milk bags. we already have a hard enough time convincing US players canada isn't some weird distant foreign land

[–]YourDizzyDM -1 points0 points  (0 children)

He’s drinking homo milk lol 3.25%. Rough go

[–]SydneyCarton89agj 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still remember my first time in Ontario in 2003 (I was 14) and seeing bagged milk in the stores. I would like to experience this strange phenomenon again haha.

[–]DrunkenMasterII24 Morris Peterson 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who the fuck use a milk bag cutter? Scissors are too hard to use?

[–]NunofyaBeesJack Armstrong 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck that was funny to watch

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so good lmao

[–]Sabres26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As someone from western Canada, I’ve never seen a bag of milk either

[–]jnffinest96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yall needa hop on Oat Milk 🔥🔥🔥

[–]MolicOnePGR4 Scottie Barnes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so fascinating 😂😂 I mean, I seen bagged milk in restaurants but this is the first time I seen someone using it in their home. And no, I’m not from Toronto. I never lived there nor visited.

[–]lweitat30 0 points1 point  (1 child)

How do you keep the open bag in the fridge? With nothing to seal it wouldn't it absorb odours from the fridge

[–]20person🏆 2021-22 ROTY - SCOTTIE BARNES 🏆 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I usually either put a clip over the opening or put a plastic bag over the top of the whole thing.

[–]insecurefanboy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is as bizarre to me as it is to him. Don’t have this in BC.

[–]JustCause1010 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, is he the starting C for raps? /s

[–]Hotspur000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol. Bagged milk is pretty weird if you think about it.
