its funny, I get invited to other peoples family gatherings and half these folks could be sumo wrestlers, and they are eating salads and carrots)

As a kid I remember there being skim milk and 1% milk in the house. Whole milk for cooking/baking. My mom used to make me drink skim milk in my teens because she wanted me to watch my weight. Never liked the taste or the taste of it in coffee. I have had the skim plus brand and that's not bad. Now that I am older I use 2% organic milk. BTW I am not a big milk drinker, mainly it's used in cereal or coffee.

Don't really care for all this Gluten free stuff either.
There used to be a fave brand of tortilla chips I would always buy, then they went and made them gluten free, and it changed the taste completely!!
I stopped buying them.

Now i have a second fave, and they're not gluten free...On The Boarder brand. They'll do.

Why would tortilla chips contain gluten? They should be made from corn.

I like all types of milk - skim, 1%, 2%, whole, half & half, cream... I never look at the calories.

Ummmm....tortilla chips don't have gluten in them. IF your formerly favorite brand now claims it's gluten free, it doesn't mean it USED to have gluten, they're just jumping on the gf bandwagon.
And, Dude, and Fresno, I really doubt you're being forced to "suffer" by eating gluten free food. Here's an idea; DON'T EAT IT! It's not like any regular food is now off the market.
If you wanna see "suffer"ing, watch a person with Celiac Disease puke up everything he just ate because he unknowingly ate something with gluten in it. Been there, done that.

At least low-fat milk still has that "whole milk" flavor.

I used to drink low-fat milk (probably 2%, but I can't remember exactly), then I lived at I-House in Berkeley when I was in grad school, and they had only 2 choices, whole milk or skim milk. (This was the '80s.) I didn't want to go back to whole milk, so I tried the skim, and I got used to it pretty quickly. Thirty years later, it's still all I drink, either by itself (has to be very, very cold) or on cereal. I don't find it watery at all, although I DO remember that it seemed like that at first.

For coffee, I agree with so many of you, skim is not good. (When you put the milk in and the coffee gets kind of gray, that's not a good sign! ) I buy a quart of 1% for coffee but skim for everything else. YUM! Really!

(Now, ice cream? Full-fat only, please! )

Skim milk is delicious. I love it and can gulp it out of the container...yum! Whole milk actually tastes awful to me...too much cream. Been drinking skim for over 30 years, so that's what I like.
