I also like milk from those old stainless steel coolers that whip into a froth when they dispense it.

Remember when the milkman brought the milk in the winter and when it froze the top would rise up under a cylinder of frozen cream?

Now I drink skim milk and try to pretend I like it!

My grandmother used to feed it to the pigs!
They quit delivering milk in bottles before I moved to Canada. People tell me that birds would peck through the tops. They also tell me about occasional bottles breaking and leaving a frozen, bottle shaped, lump of milk.

I don't drink milk. I like mine in the form of cheese...

unless it's milk soup, my milk has to be ice cold and no more than 1% fat.

There is not enough fat in whole milk that I am willing to give up taste for an eight ounce glass of milk.

for me, a milk lover all my life, the taste of milk is not in the fat. before milk was homogenized, i carefully drank only the milk that had separated from the fat. when they came out with skim and 1% milk, i was one happy milk maiden--except for the color. i agree that blue is not a particularly appetizing color in a glass of milk.... :)

I like it freezing cold in summer and piping hot in winter. The only thing I can stomach at room temp is cheese. I know it's a bit nuts but I over heat or over chill everything!

My favourite way to drink milk is well chilled in a glass bottle. I add flavouring of choice. Some vanilla, nesquick (strawberry)or honey etc. Then close and shake like crazy till lots of foam forms on top. Yum!

I like my milk cold and served in a glass (not plastic) glass. Usually the only way I drink milk warm is when I make hot chocolate. I have fond memories of drinking warm milk at my grandparents as a child but that was way different. Grandpa had milk cows and his own pasteurization machine that he ran the milk through before the dairy picked it up in those wonderful stainless steel milk cans. He had a tin cup in the milk house just for me and would give me a cupful right from the pasteurization machine. It was really comforting and oh so good. He raised guernsey cows which produce the highest butterfat milk. You can imagine what their whole milk tasted like! And Grandma's homemade ice cream custard was the best!

I've always wondered why people love the idea of drinking milk from a cow but are terrified by the thought of drinking breastmilk. I've never tasted it but surely it would be better for us and probably taste better too? Who knows? I was never breast fed so I have no clue but it makes sense.

I only buy milk in paper cartons (we only use about a quart per week) and pretty much never have issues with it going sour even when opened for well over a week.
The main milk company here is Massachusetts is Garelick. The milk, half and half, and all creams sold to restaurants are only pasturized. Not ultra pasturized. The ones that are ultra have been heated twice and sold to the general public. Thus there is a small breakdown in the fat contents. Occassionaly they have an overrun of their restaurant products and sell them to the small Mom and Pop stores or 7-11 stores. And you definitely can taste the difference. It is richer. They do have a shorter shelf life. And it is mostly sold in half gallon containers. I will grab a half and half when it is available and place it in the freezer. Because it is much richer I use less of that product than the one I usually buy.

Well I will end your wondering. It is hot and very sweet when it is fed to a baby. I breast fed all my babies. When I had my third baby, the two oldest ones want to taste it. So I let them. That was the last time they asked for that.
