Do you drink milk?

captureWhat are people drinking with their cookies these days? It’s apparently not milk.

The Wall Street Journal reports that milk consumption in the U.S. has fallen nearly 35% since 1975, and the decline is speeding up.

Now dairy companies are working to rev up milk sales again, hoping to attract busy families with new packaging sizes and styles.

    Just got finished a glass. Can't live without it. I remember having milk straight from the cow when I was a kid visiting friends and family in Folsom. Sure wish I could locate some of that. As for my kids, they drank it, of course chocolate was preferred, but there are certain foods that call only for milk. Pancakes, peanut butter sandwiches….

    I drink about 3 gallons of milk a week. I drink it with every meal, with snacks and most certainly with sweets.

    My fridge does not go a week without milk. Unfortunately, it goes bad faster than my family can finish it (and we have TONS of cereal!!). I have resorted to scaling down to a half gallon. Some of still ends up going sour, but not as much as before. Even though we can't finish our milk, there always seems to be a need for it, at least in my house.
