Drinking Horizon Organic milk, wishing it was Organic Valley
Maybe it's just me, but Organic Valley just tastes better. And it's actually produced by a co-op, IIRC, while Horizon Organic has been absorbed by Dean Foods and is slowly being corporatized.

1. I've only ever had Horizon... I'll have to check it out.
Most of our organic dairy is Horizon. I hate not really having a choice.

2. IIRC, PCC is pulling Horizon because of doubts about it's "organicness"

5. There are big concerns about Aurora too (Costco and a lot of other store brands)
IIRC, the concern is that their cows are factory farmed and get little to no pasture time.

4. You know what I love about soy milk?
The shelf life, and the children don't know the difference. They actually like chocolate soy milk better.

6. The shelf life is nice. It's nice to be able to buy a case and jam it in a closet.
Almond milk is pretty awesome too, if they haven't tried it. I really like chocolate Almond Breeze.
