Tried Organic Lowfat Milk

It was so rich and creamy I couldn't believe it! I will never drink anything else. My first thought was - "What's with THIS stuff"? and my son said, you mean, "What's with the OTHER stuff"? I do believe he's right!

If you ever make it over to this part of the country, drop into a "Braum's" store, and get a half-gallon of skim milk. They've never used BHG growth hormone, and vacuum-process their skim milk to concentrate it. If you compare it to other brands, the other brands are so thin, they're a pale blue, while the stuff from Braum's is bright white.

Of course, I used to work for that company for 6 years.

It also helps that a gallon of 2% milk from them is $2.79/gallon, while the cheapest stuff from Wally-World is $3.50/gallon.

Thanks Allen!

Breezy - I bought the brand Horizon. I'll have to see what other brands are available around here. I never thought it would make THAT much difference - I was so surprised!!!!!

Ive been buying Horizon skim milk for a few years now and I also think it tastes rich another reason I buy it becauseis it has a long shelf life (ultra pastuerized)I always try to get the very freshest I can get.Its a 90 mile round trip for me to get anything so shelf life is important to me.

Skim Milk always last awhile. It's the milkfat present in milk that makes it go bad faster.

I bought some Vanilla Soy milk..haven't had the nerve to try it yet. I don't like milk so I thought I would use it with some sugar free chocolate instead of making coffee some morning.

Organic milk lasts a whole lot longer than the other stuff. It's great because in my house, we used to throw milk out because we couldn't go through it before its expiration date. Not a problem anymore!
