I, uh, don't believe the gender neutral language is required when referring to dairy cows.

My mother told me that I am not allowed to participate in this holiday. The Dentist told her it would rot my teeth.
She reminded me that National Carrot day is February 3rd.

I'm also a fan of the self-cooking variety.

I wish cows really did give chocolate milk.

I had an impulse to post a relevant Steely Dan song but nipped that one in the bud. Consider yourselves saved

Yoo-hoo! I loves me a glass or two of some of that Nestle's chocolatey flavored milk in the morning!

I wish I could, but chocolate contains caffeine, and that makes my blood pressure issues worse.

Last week I was sick in bed, and asked my Ukrainian girlfriend to buy me some chocolate milk.  She looked at me funny, but I said that was what I felt like having.  Something was lost in translation, because she came back with a big bar of milk chocolate.

I should have asked for a "chocolate cocktail".  I forgot.  I learned this a while back when I asked what our (8-year old) girls were doing, and she said they were having cocktails.  This took a while to sort out.

I love chocolate milk but Hershey's syrup never mixes up completely no matter how much you try and Nesquik is just nasty. My go to is Ovaltine. Every night I have a glass before going to bed. Still haven't saved enough labels to get my Little Orphan Annie decoder ring yet, though.

When I was a kid growing up in various Asian countries, fresh milk was not generally available. So my parents made us drink powdered milk, which tastes horrible. The only way I could drink that stuff was to add Nestle Quick. My parents allowed it, thank goodness.

Fun fact - cows with mastitis give strawberry milk.

I sunk my life savings into a dairy barn and bought a herd of milk bulls to stick it to the patriarchy. It failed spectacularly. It's a very niche market that will buy bull yogurt.

Too lazy to look for a reference now but somewhere i heard that chocolate is added so they can sell the infected yellowy molk with pus and other discoloration.

SCC ( white blood cell ) testing is FDA mandatory and has certain limits. It is going to be present in all milk, but the farmers can't easily sort the milk for it's SCC content... if they could do this, they'd just filter it out.

The milk buyers on the other hand could be making financial decisions about lower quality milk being given to their chocolate milk supply. High SCC reduces shelf life though.

/I could be wrong. IANA  farmer... just googled and read a bunch.

I love chocolate milk but it doesn't like me. I regret it when I give in to the temptation and buy my favorite, Nestle Quik. I haven't had it in over a decade.

Damn, I love chocolate milk. I'm in my 70s and still love it.

This is the (even more) embarrassing part: I love the cheap pre-made stuff you can get at the grocery. I can't drink milk with lactose anymore, but every once in awhile, the local store will have some of that cheap chocolate milk except lactose free. I feel like a kid sneaking a cigarette when I buy it.

Favorite form: egg creams. Fox's U-Bet is the best syrup for that. It's crap for regular chocolate milk but put a spritz of soda water in there and it shines.

I used to love a good COLD glass of chocolate milk.....Sadly, my innards stopped liking me taking in much
milk a few years ago..I can have some milk or butter in things..But If I overdo it, I pay a price...
