I've been buying this stuff like a fiend. And it looks like I'm not the only one- I now have to get it early in the morning because it's usually sold out by evening.
Someone brought this into work one day a few months ago and I had some with my Carnation Instant Breakfast drink because there was no other milk available. I was blown away by the thick and rich taste! Now you can make chocolate milk that actually tastes like the Hershey's stuff you buy in the store (well it's not quite that rich, but it tastes better than the chocolate water, Yoohoo tasting stuff that you normally end up with when using regular milk). Unlike regular milk, there's also no bitter aftertaste that creeps in within 20 mins of drinking it. It's great on all the various cereals I've used it with as well (Cap'n'Crunch, Grape Nuts, Cracklin Oat Bran, Raisin Bran, Cheerios, Kix, Life, Honey Bunches of Oats w/Strawberries...).
Bottom line, the 1/2 gallon carton (only size available AFAIK) costs as much as a gallon of regular milk. But it tastes so damn good with everything you mix it with, or even plain, that it's well worth it. The stuff also doesn't go sour for at least a month! Try it today!
Yeah it's unfortunate. I asked some of my friends in PA if they had it anywhere and they couldn't find it either. But I figured I'd spread the word. Hey maybe I can get Animal18 to try it. He's not too far from me.
Think about it- what business does sugar have in milk? This stuff is sort of the antithesis of diet soda. You don't lose flavor or 'substance.' This stuff actually tastes better than regular milk- if you're thinking it's like skim milk, well it's the opposite of that too.
Originally posted by krupted yep same here- i eat anything i want, i burn it off at work doin construction. 2% is what i grew up on, anything else disgusts me, even skim milk- actually, especially skim milk.
If i see this ' milk ' at the store ill probably grab one just to see, wrath is makin this stuff seem like candy
The Hood stuff is 2% milk.
Didn't realize you were in PA, albeit the other side of the state than my hometown. You might not find it locally.
Try Wal-Mart. That's where I get mine if Hannaford's or Shaw's doesn't have it.
