Whole, 2%, or skim milk

I drink skim milk: even 2% has loads of fat, and you get used to skim after a while.

But to make chocolate milk you can't use Nestle Quik...it won't mix. Must use Hershey's syrup.

This poll sucks. I drink 1%. Where's that option?

I knew that would come up.

I felt that those who drink 1% were in transition: you have not really committed to skim, but can't quite let go of the 2%. You are wobbling on a milk fence, unsure on which side to fall. Therefore, I have decided not to count you people in my very scientific poll. So there.

I'm glad my kids drink it. I don't care for it much anymore. Cheese on the other hand is a weakness, esp sharpe and gormetty cheeses. Yum.

The story goes that when I was a kid, my parents couldn't get me off my baby bottle. In a stroke of mad genius, my mother put Tabasco sauce on the nipple of the bottle. I have never liked drinking milk or eating spicy foods. Even the smell of a glass of milk is enough to make me gag. Yuck.

Dairy is okay, though.

Skim, to eliminate fat calories. But its not the greatest in coffee...need 2% for that. Havent tried whole milk in decades...it would probably make me gag.

They sell 1/2% where my parents live, in NC. I don't think I've seen it here.

No option for 1% but that's what I usually get.

Still half and half for coffee, because you only need a little. I need a bunch of milk to make up the white in my coffee, so it evens out.

I agree. It's like using real butter on hot-air popcorn...you can use a lot less.

We mostly drink milk straight from Jersey cows, so the cream content is high. Well, when I say straight from the cow, I don't mean we get down on our knees and suck it out ourselves (although that image is quite amusing). My Dad's neighbour has a number of Jersey cows and he keeps us supplied.

The interesting thing I've noted is that the shelf life of the pure untreated milk is so much longer than any treated milk I've ever bought. It keeps for up to two weeks (or more) in a 3 degree fridge.
