When my kids were little, we tried to save money when traveling by bringing along cereal and bowls for a economical breakfast in the hotel before heading out for a day of sightseeing. The kids always complained about the watery powdered milk I gave them to pour over their cereal.
Back then, we didn’t use Milkman powdered milk. Milkman’s “kiss of cream” makes for a richer powdered milk–which would have meant my kids would happily eat their cereal, saving us the cost of an expensive in-hotel breakfast.
The same goes for my husband, the milkaholic. All he has to do is walk by the refrigerator and he is overcome by the uncontrollable need to fill a tall glass of milk and guzzle it down. (If I’m in the room he tries to drink it at a normal speed, but I know he is a secret guzzler.)
When I met him 38 years ago and counting calories was not an issue, he’d buy a “Cowtainer” from a drive-up dairy. This plastic lined cardboard container, similar to boxed wine, contained 2½ gallons of whole milk. He’d get out his favorite tall glass, add several ice cubes and smile while pushing the nozzle to release the fresh milk. He’d drink a glass…or two…or even three.
Throughout the years he’s continued his love affair with milk, although now it is the non-fat version. So you can imagine what happens if we are out of milk at home or while traveling.
Many times we’d find ourselves arriving late at a hotel with not a carton of milk in sight. Now we have Milkman powdered milk to save my husband from his milk withdrawals. The powdered milk is low-fat, easy to mix and soon to be GMO-free. Give him a glass, a few ice cubes and a package of Milkman and he’s a happy camper.
Speaking of camping, as avid RV’ers, Milkman powdered milk will come in handy for those times when we are not close to a store. On one of our jobs, we were delivering new shoes on a remote Indian reservation in a snowstorm. There we were, stranded in the middle of nowhere, and my husband’s only comment was, “I wish I had some milk.” That won’t happen again. While we don’t buy Cowtainers any more, we will stock up on Milkman powdered milk to keep my husband’s milk cravings under control.
