Wyoming Needs To Tell America Where Chocolate Milk Comes From
I don't usually associate Wyoming with culinary excellence, but it looks like we need to educate America a bit.
In this article from FoodAndWine.com they shared results from a survey done by The Innovative Center for U.S. Dairy.
I actually had to read the data several times to make sure that I was understanding what it said because frankly, it was pretty unbelievable.
Almost half of the people interviewed were "not sure" where chocolate milk comes from.
To be exact it was 48% of the people interviewed. And YES, in case you were wondering, they were all 18 years old or older.
Taking that one step further, 7% of them said that they thought chocolate milk came from brown cows.
Folks, I can't make this stuff up.
That means that if we look at these stats nationwide, 16.4 million Americans think Chocolate Milk comes from brown cows.
Looks like Wyoming needs to do some educating...
Chocolate milk is created by adding chocolate to regular plain old milk.
You can buy Chocolate Milk premade at the store or you can DIY your chocolate milk at home. Here is a tutorial from Betty's Kitchen on YouTube in case you need some help. Side Note: I think she needs to mix her glass up a bit more before she drinks it.
You can also make Chocolate Milk by mixing your desired amount of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup with cold milk straight from the fridge and save yourself a lot of time ;)
