We’re heavy drinkers, of milk that is, at our house. The four of us go through about two gallons of milk a week. The kids each have their strawberry or chocolate milk in the morning and afternoon. We use milk with our coffee, tea, cereal, and the occasional hot chocolate. Hey, it’s full of healthy calcium and vitaming D to keep our bones strong. Actually if you read studies from the past few years, vitamin D seems to be the miracle supplement, preventing anything and everything from weak bones, to heart disease, to diabetes, to cancer, to Alzheimer’s, to ________ (fill in your own disease fear here).
So today we restocked on milk and it gave me the idea for this post. Here are some interesting uses of cows to sell milk to people like you and me.
The first one is Lactaid, which shows you that by removing lactose, you’ll fall in love all over again with milk. Yes, there’s “Dancing with the stars”, but you really can’t top “Dancing with a cow”!
So, what’s better than dancing cows? How about jumping cows? But not over the moon – it’s so overused… The Horizon milk cow is actually jumping around the earth. Well, at least the organic side of it. And she couldn’t be happier!
Of course I saved the best for last. What’s better than a dancing cow, or a jumping cow? How about no cow? Apparently, when you sell “TruMoo” milk, it’s so real that you don’t even need to show where it comes from.
Actually, let’s be fair. There is a cow on this milk carton, but it’s quite tiny. So what do you think TruMoo is? According to the label, it’s short for Real California Milk. Yeah, TruMoo really is more catchy!
Does your favorite milk brand have cows? Does it feature any exciting characters, or does it stick to a more conservative look?
