Oops, I did it again. Forgot that the field trip required a bag lunch. This time it was for Children’s Choir but sometimes it’s a school trip And yes, I can hear Britney Spears singing in the background. Bad (lunch) karma will get you an earworm.
This time I sent my husband on a quick run to pick up a sub–and I have no idea what he did about a beverage, since we don’t stock soda or bottled water.
But I am sooo prepared now. We just received samples of a product called Cow Wow Cereal Milk (disclaimer: provided free for purposes of this review). Cow Wow is organic, naturally flavored 1% milk in shelf stable (9+ months) 8.5 oz packages. Once I stock these, I can forget she needs a lunch and she’ll even get her calcium–organically!
Cow Wow cereal milk was developed to taste like the milk left in the bottom of the cereal bowl with its obvious kid appeal. The first flavor we tried was Fruity Trudy which we thought was like mild fruit loop milk (albeit from my ancient memories…and where on earth did my organic daughter get Fruit Loops). Next we tried the Chocolate Chip Cathy and the first word I heard from daughter #3 was “mine.” With a mild chocolaty flavor it her favorite. I liked the Cinny Minny best. It tasted like milk with a touch of cinnamon and was good plain and excellent in coffee (and I so wanted to try making a snickerdoodle martini). All of the flavors were mild which means they don’t taste like flavor enhancing chemicals–not surprising since the flavorings are all natural.
I did think of one other time I routinely need this and that is for storage in our “cabin up north.” Here my problem is milk for my early morning coffee after a late night arrival. I try to keep UHT whipped cream in the refrigerator but the kids can empty a spray can in no time flat. The little boxes of UHT milk may solve this problem– if I hide one somewhere safe, like my underwear drawer.
Probably soooo not in the milk’s marketing plan.
Want to try this yourself? It is available in a variety of stores as well as Amazon.
