Yogurt as far as the eye can see


Apparently it's a common problem for people who move to Denmark that most cartons that look like they contain milk or juice actually contain yogurt. "This has fruits on it. Surely this is juice" Nope, fruity yogurt. "The stuff that comes out of this carton is super runny. Surely this is milk" Nope, runny yogurt. Danes love yogurt.

Hint, look for the word "mælk". It might say Minimælk, Sødmælk, Skummemælk and so on, but if the letters "mælk" are in there somewhere you can be relatively sure it's milk. I have seen yogurt milk too though, so be careful.

Sister Canada: Hello?
Brother Canada: Hey, what's up?
Sister Canada: I need your help. Can you come here?
Brother Canada: I can't. I'm buying milk.
Sister Canada: Alright, well hurry up and come over here.
Brother Canada: I can't find them.

Sister Canada: What do you mean "there's only yogurt"?
Brother Canada: It means there's only yogurt.
Sister Canada: Well then get out of the yogurt aisle!
Brother Canada: Alright, you don't have to shout at me! (moves to the next aisle) There's more yogurt!
Sister Canada: What do you mean "there's more yogurt"?!
Brother Canada: There's just more yogurt!

Brother Canada: (moves to the next aisle) There's still yogurt!
Sister Canada: Where are you right now?!
Brother Canada: I'm at yogurt!

Heh, this reminds me of the story my grandma told. My grandfathers native language was swedish and once, when they were having a roadtrip in Germany, he bought some vegetable oil as beer. Öl means beer in swedish but oil in german. His face had been quite a sight, when he had opened his "beer" in the evening and took a sip. :D

That's so annoying with all the irrelevant packaging! I recently bough a carton with a picture of a cow on it. Did it contain nice and juicy beef? No! Yoghurt!

Based on this video by any chance? (think she's even from canada as well) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFC591Cn3Cg
and yes in case you were wondering
everything in Denmark is in fact yogurt EVERYTHING

that orange juice you're drinking? - runny orange flavored yogurt.
that lovely steak you had last night? - congealed beef flavored yogurt.
that cute girl you saw at the super market? - sentient anthropomorphic yogurt.

Yogurt, yet another example of the Scandinavian tradition of taking something and leaving it out long enough to turn it off-color and possibly a bit smelly.

My husband bought a carton of milk when we were in Iceland.

It was not milk.

We still don't know what he drank.

"He loves this yoghurt-infested hell he's created!"

I'm going to enjoy that line for a few days.

Sister Canada is kinda how I imagined american small town housewives... well you know... until I realised the thing about the pills, alcohol, adultery, religious bigotry, xenophobia and general unpleasantness.... so nothing like the american small town housewives I guess...
