Shannon and I drink a lot of milk; it's not uncommon for us to go through two gallons a week. So when Heather mentioned how much she enjoyed Oberweis chocolate milk we had to see what all the fuss was about.
The three of us stopped by an Oberweis store on the way home from Swedish days this past weekend and picked up a half gallon of chocolate and regular skim:
Regular Skim Milk
Shannon and I started with a blind taste test between our regular milk and Oberweis skim. While Oberweis doesn't contain any additives or hormones, and it appeared to be a slightly whiter-white, I could not distinguish a difference between how they tasted. The verdict: not worth the extra $2/gallon, by a long shot
The chocolate milk is absolutely divine; it tastes like a very low viscosity chocolate milk shake, but better. It's been four days and already we had to run to the Jewel/Osco to pick up more (check out the empty bottles in the picture). That's how good this chocolate milk is. The verdict: Oberweis chocolate milk is worth every penny
So, my advice to you: when drinking their chocolate milk always mix it half-and-half with regular skim milk. You still get that great flavor, but the bottle lasts twice as long 🙂
