Give Me a Meter of Milk!

I’m a gallon of milk girl.

But these days I live in Germany where they use the metric system. There’s no such thing as a gallon of milk.

I can get a bigger beer at a festival than I can a container of milk at the grocery store. While a typical carton of milk is 1 liter, a glass of beer ranges in size from 1-3 liters.

If you ask me, milk should only come in a single serving size if it’s part of a school lunch.  It’s downright frustrating!

But I have a solution.  Give me a meter of milk!  Sound foolish?

It’s not!  A meter is a bona fide serving size in Germany.  Check it out:

Meter Popcorn

One Meter Popcorn

For those watching their weight, there’s the ever-popular half-meter:

German Bratwurst

German Food

I’ll say one thing – if I ever convince the powers that be to produce a meter of milk, someone better send me a kilometer of Oreos!!
