    First of all, milk doesn’t even seem like a word to me anymore after reading all that! (Somebody tell me you know what I’m talking about here…)

    I grew up drinking 2%, but Fiance likes skim, so I slowly went from 2%, to 1% and now to skim over the years. Funny because I remember one of my roommates having skim all the time in college and being so grossed out by it, and now I drink it all the time.

    Non fat or low fat milk.  I love soy milk for cereal and stuff, but I can’t use it to cook with!

    We drink lactose free 1%, and skim in our house.  1% for cereal, because skim makes it soooo soggy.  Skim for everything else.

    2%. I can’t stand the others. I also love chocolate and strawberry milk.

    I urge my students to buy organic milk. If there is only one thing you buy that’s organic, it should be milk. We create trangenic animals to secrete various substances in their milk for medical reasons. Anyone who has ever breastfed a child knows that anything you eat or medication you take ends up in the milk. Growth hormones, steroids and antibiotics do indeed end up in milk. BUY ORGANIC MILK!

     

    I will now step down from my soapbox…

    I used to drink ICE COLD 2% milk with every meal when I was a kid, BUT, I have a habit of overzealously eating something everyday as a kid, and then growing up to my teens and NEVER wanting to touch that particular food/drink ever again. It happened with orange juice, it happened with fig newtons hahhaa, and its has definitely happened with milk.  I now cannot stand it. It makes me feel a lil’ ill.

    I am mildly lactose intolerant — 2%, 1% or skim bother me.

    I just sort of gave up on milk until I started dating my fiance. His family has a farm, and they milk their own cow. His dad encouraged me to try it because he’d heard of people being able to drink whole milk even when 2% or less bothered them, and wouldn’t you know, he was right! I can drink “raw” milk or I can buy whole milk at the store, and they don’t bother me. I get soy milk at Starbucks or places where whole isn’t an option.

    Honeybun — I know what you’re talking about! After you type something or read it so often it just looks unreal

    Minutiae — Fresh from the cow! Sometimes people think I’m weird for that; it’s always nice to see other people randomly who do as well.

    soy! after being vegan for eight years, specifically i’ve decided silk’s very vanilla flavor (in the purple carton) is the best “all-purpose” soymilk (unless you’re making something savory with it, heh).  otherwise, for cereal, baking, making pudding, whatever, it’s by far best. no one else in my family is vegan but they all use it instead of cows’ milk.

    I grew up drinking 1%. Fiance grew up drinking…. powdered milk. I don’t recommend it if you’re used to the ‘real’ stuff!! I have long since converted him to 1%.
