Alarming Number of Americans Don't Know Where Chocolate Milk Comes From


No, it doesn't come from brown cows.

Yes, you read that correctly.

An alarming number of people in this country wouldn’t be able to tell you how chocolate milk is made - 48 percent, according to a study conducted by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy in April of this year.

Of that number, 7 percent of those respondents believed that chocolate milk came directly from cows (brown cows, to be exact).

That’s just embarrassing.

As a kid, maybe you remember squeezing Hersey’s syrup into your milk at breakfast, or heaping Nesquick chocolate powder into your milk after school. What it comes down to: a mixture of milk and chocolate flavoring. And that, my friends, is how chocolate milk comes to be. 

So please, educate your fellow man.  Because we’re better than this.
