Sometimes I would buy 1% or 2% milk if the skim milk expiration date was too close and my kids would always say it was spoiled because they weren't used to the milk fat. I don't notice any taste difference with this milk and it's almost as great as Dreamfields Pasta, but nothing tops that stuff. It's like the best pasta product most people (expecially non-diabetics) have never heard of. Tastes just like regular white pasta, but only 5 grams of carbs per serving. Everything in the world should be as brilliant as that stuff. Wally world shoppers also won't know what Dreamfield is either because they're the only grocery store here that doesn't sell it. My theory is that walmart doesn't like diabetics or are in cahoots with the endocrinologists to insure they always have jobs..

Yes I was buying Horizon, but did not like it too much. Tasted just like regular Hill County Fair milk (boring).

But this Mootopia stuff....damn...some of the best milk I've ever had.

And even better news...see...below:

MooTopia is also lactose free, and it is substantially creamier and more flavorful than traditional milk, according to H-E-B. The company says taste tests show that MooTopia skim milk is creamier than traditional 2% milk, while MooTopia 2% is creamier than traditional whole milk. Time to give SKIM a try!

Definitely should. Milk fat is almost as bad as the sugar soft drinks as far as calories. That 449 thing will get you every time.

Ooohhhh, now I need to try it! Just the longer expiration date will probably make up the price premium...

I only buy Dreamfields. It's one of the only reasons I go to HEB.

I've tried Horizon and liked it. Switched for almost a month but had a hard time finding it as my HEB had a hard time keeping it in stock. I e-mailed them and asked what the deal was and they said, "there's an organic milk shortage, should i suggest you try Hill Country Fare?" Tried it and wasn't too thrilled.

I love me some lactose, so I haven't tried the mootopia, but won't lie that's what initially lead me over to the organic milk section.

I stopped buying the expensive organic milk though as we are huge milk drinkers and can't spend $12 on 2 gallons of milk a week. That's too much!

I forgot the price of Mootopia, but I recall it was a little cheaper than organic.

I buy HEB's lactose free milk for the lack of lactose and the long expiration date. I think Mootopia is a little more expensive or has a closer expiration date (can't remember exactly why I don't buy it). I only bought it when it was on sale or when there was a coupon. I believe Mootopia has less of the unnatural, yucky stuff in comparison to HEB's regular, lactose-free milk.

I prefer raw milk, now that is some good tasting milk. When I get out to Seguin I pick some up, along with raw butter... good stuff.

Otherwise I'm drinking Horizon.
