    Picked up a gallon at 4.33 today. Otherwise it would have been 2.20 for the half gallons twice.

    If a milk company does not understand to set aside savings for the lean times then they don't deserve to be in business still.

    Lots of reasons, but from what I have read, milk sales have tanked the last couple of years for one reason or other. One reason is the yuppie type designer milks has cut in on the sales of plain milk.
    One reason I do not drink as much milk is you can not even buy what I call milk anymore, I think one gallon of real milk is cut down and sold as 9 or 10 gallons, of colored water with a little flavoring. lol

    Milk has always been foul to me.

    last thing I want to do is chug some milk when I’m thirsty, or wash down a burger with some milk.

    i like whole milk. goes great with breakfast, cupcakes, cereal, in a bowl with regular cake or simply by itself.

    Cereal and coffee is all I usually use milk for. Half a gallon lasts me about a week.



    I'm not even 30 and I already think like Sam Elliot lol.

    Little 1/2&1/2 in my coffee... and some 2% on a occasional bowl of cereal and that’s all I ever use.

    Wow, I knew it was watered down, but didn't realize it was that much.


    Right strait out of the cow worked for centuries, and is the way I drank it for years. We even skimmed the cream and made our own butter, which is better than marjorin any day of the week too.
    I don't see how the so called whole milk could be too much for anything.
