So we were watching a movie tonight (Shiloh) and the boy in the movie is sitting at the table getting ready to eat cereal. There is a gallon of milk on the table and Olivia said "Whoa, Mom! Look at that freaky huge thing of milk!!" I just laughed and asked her if she remembered that's what milk looks like in the States, and she didn't remember. We've only been gone a year. The milk in France is small-most of the time they are out of the 1/2 gallon at my store, so I buy the quarts. And they only stock a few of those at a time because most people here buy the UHT (shelf stable) milk in cardboard cartons. We just can't get used to it. And there's no fat free milk, either. I think the lowest fat is like 3%, so needless to say, I drink very little milk here!
