Before my son went off to college, I told him he could choose
something for me to compare. Since he loves chocolate milk, that is
what he chose. We got a little carried away with the number of brands
that we tried. You can see that some of the milks are different shades
of brown. We were able to eliminate the worst ones right off the bat:
Smith's and Great Value were awful compared to the rest.
Great Value $3.64 for six 8 oz. bottles (7.58 per ounce)
Hershey's 1.39 for 12 oz. (11.58 per ounce)
Nestle's 1.59 for 16 oz. (9.94 per ounce)
Albertson's 1.39 for 12 oz. (11.58 per ounce)
Viva 1.29 for 16 oz. (8.06 per ounce)
Darigold 1.39 for 16 oz. (8.69 per ounce)
Meadow Gold 1.79 for 32 oz. (5.59 per ounce)
Smith's 2.19 for 64 oz. (3.42 per ounce)
Organic Valley 2.39 for 32 oz. (7.47 per ounce)
Results: We put them into 4 different catagories according to taste. Organic Valley and Darigold were the best. Next came
Meadow Gold and Nesquick. Albertson's, Hershey's and Viva were in the next group.
Last awful were Smith's and Great Value and they were awful. Hershey's was
really, really sweet and Viva was 1 percent, so that is probably why it
didn't do as well as the Low fat ones.
