    2%. Anything less tastes like milk flavored water. Whole is of course better tasting, but eh.

    How about an option for people who don't drink milk?

    I don't drink milk straight, but I put 2% in my coffee and in my protein shakes.

    I've gone through phases. I grew up on 2%, but switched to skim once I graduated from college. Eventually got tired of it, and compromised on 1%, which is what I still drink today.

    And of course, we buy chocolate milk by the gallon as well.

    Only 2%, I agree that anything under is just too watery for me.

    Well, thats what my parents bought for me as I grew up, and I cant stand to drink anything else. Like apfhex said, it tastes like milk flavored water, which to me is horrid.

    Now mostly 1.5% milk.

    Been slowly weaning myself from whole milk that I drank when I was a kid. Worked on a dairy farm. Free milk -- as much as we wanted. That was truly whole milk. No pasteurization or any treatment. Just straight from the cow. Yum! :)

    Isn't all milk fortified with Vitamin D?

    Anyway, I don't care much for milk, but on the occasion that I do drink it (usually in cereal), I prefer 1% or skim. Soy milk is also quite tasty, as is chocolate milk.

    1% for me. I usually drink chocolate because it's got the 4/1 ratio of carbs to protein as part of my eating regiment for workouts.

    I detest milk. More specifically, I detest what passes for milk these days...

    I grew up with fresh, local milk delivery by a milkman - 6 glass pints. Rich, delicious and nutritious - I even had to scoop off cream...

    Though I can't be sure - I am pretty sure it was unpasteurized - which is illegal in the US (iirc).

    Though pasteurization obviously kills many potentially present harmful bacteria - it also kills many beneficial ones (such as those who aid in milk digestion), and various beneficial enzymes - which aid in mineral and vitamin absorption.

    It is too bad that local, fresh milk can't be brought to the US market...

    Just my 2 cents...

    A handful of states allow raw milk to be sold in stores and about half of the states allow it to be sold at the farm. I also happen to know a couple of people who have gotten very sick from it. :eek:

    Right out of the cow, of course it is a bit warm, but the taste is heavenly. When milking, I used to squirt a bit directly from cow to my mouth just to have a bit of enjoyment. Of course different cows produced different milk and have different butterfat content. So I would aim for which one I was thirsty for. :)

    So true. Milk from the store is a far cry from fresh milk.

    Here in Japan, the milk is very good.

    Nothing like having your own half and half for cereal, coffee, milkshake, etc.
