Horizon Organic Creaminess in FOUR FLAVORS!


Bubbles has two favorite foods: bacon, and milk.

The pork people haven't gotten to me yet, but the Horizon peeps know where to look to find some serious milk drinkers: Ask the Mamas.

We had planned on having a big milk taste test last week, but when Bubbles blew chunks (can I say that in a product review? probably not)...erm...got sick all over the parking lot of Target (thus ensuring the 30 minute drive there was futile since I have a personal issue about walking into a store covered in kid-puke), it pretty much squashed that idea.
Now, however, everyone is back in working order and thirsty.


I am guessing that most of the mommies I know have caved at least once at their child's request for some chocolate milk at Starcluck's. I mean seriously, you are in line waiting to pay for your $4 latte, your child grabs a strategically placed chocolate milk box and sweetly asks you for a treat. You shake your head impulsively, rejecting the notion that your Starcluck's excursions are now going to cost you an added $2 if you dare to bring your small child near the child-friendly display case. Then you see the label: Horizon. Organic. Milk.
And you are a loser because you realize that other customers witnessed you trying to prevent your child from having something as wholesome as ORGANIC MILK just so you can jack up your caffeine fix. So of course you buy them the milk box, because there you are indulging yourself.

But then you discover that Starcluck's is not the only vendor for those little milk boxes; they are actually available to the public at other outlets! Like grocery stores!
So you could buy a whole pack of the milk boxes and take your own milk boxes to starcluck's because you are so cheap theoretically put them in your child's wholesome lunch.
But that's not all! They have FOUR FLAVORS! Yes, you heard me. This is the modern world, where we expect the most from our cows milk.

Even Supergirl got in on the action, and she is not generally a fan of The Milk. But she saw 'strawberry flavor' on one of the boxes and, being a huge fan of Charlie and Lola, wanted to try 'pink milk' as a show of solidarity.

We prepared the shot glasses (this was my fancy and clever way of avoiding the single straw issue):


First, they tested the strawberry. Supergirl chose this flavor first, and handed a glass to Bubbles, ignoring his pleas to "Have choco! Want choco!"
Supergirl was a little skeptical that it wasn't actually pink milk, but I was thrilled to note the absence of red food dye. If you have ever been around my daughter after she had ingested a red vine or bowl of trix, you would be emphatically nodding your head in agreement here.



She loved it. She drank it. She asked for more. For the first time in her life since giving up breastmilk (at 16 mos), she asked for more milk.
My children's mantra seems to be: ingest the least amount of calories to get by each day. So when Supergirl discovers that she likes MILK with some sugar (cane sugar! no high-fructose corn syrup in Horizon products!) and strawberry flavor, I am all over that. Even I will cave to the single serving boxes to get her to drink some milk.

Bubbles tried the strawberry, obliging us with a sip, before he slammed it down on the table and pointed again at the preferred flavor: CHOCO!
Since we knew he would love the chocolate flavor, we moved on to vanilla for the second flavor.
I cannot believe this, but both of my kids gave it the thumbs down. I think it was because Supergirl was already hooked on the strawberry, and Bubbles was obsessing over the chocolate, but they both wrinkled their noses and asked for another flavor.
I tried it myself to see what the big deal was about, and decided those two are certifiably crazy. The vanilla tastes like a creamy melted vanilla milkshake. THE BEST, in my opinion.
Do NOT trust your children in matters of taste, even when there is a cute little cow on the label, thus implying that children will be impressed by the contained product.

Moving on to the chocolate.

Supergirl took one sip and made this face:











BECAUSE SHE IS A KID WITH NO TASTE! WHO THE HECK DOESN'T LIKE CHOCOLATE MILK? She is totally fired.



Bubbles, on the other hand, demanded a bigger cup of the stuff. I offered him the straw, but the little guy gets the most satisfaction out of a nice long draw off a sippy cup, so he helped himself to another cup and poured it in himself. Then he handed me the box of chocolate milk and asked me to pour the rest into his sippy cup. I love that boy's initiative.
Bubbles decided that the beloved CHOCO milk was all his. He would not share the coveted box of chocolate milk with anyone.
I saved the box of regular 2% milk to keep on hand for emergencies, because Bubbles will drink regular milk any day, all day. We are regular fans and buyers of Horizon products - I want my children to have an organic, hormone and additive-free diet as much as possible, so I tend to stock up when it is on sale.

If you would like some coupons for Horizon products, click here and they will send you some!

One could deduce from these results that my children are fickle and unreliable taste testers, OR one could deduce that Horizon offers something for everybody.

Thank you for sharing this information on organic milk. I had no idea they came in flavors and printed the coupon to try some!

I just found your blog. My eight year old only likes bacon, milk and bread. Best, Becs

I love this taste test! I must try the other flavors. My parents bought big bins of the chocolate from Costco for a while (when my sis and I were still in high school with packed lunches) because it doesn't ever need to be refrigerated. Possibly I'll go back to it when I start packing bento for my next term at college!

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

The online casinos usually have a list of games they offer on their website to see the potential players. In case your favorite games are not listed, it is advisable to proceed to the next casino.


Well, the advantages of playing in an online casino are tremendous they give you the thrills and chills at your own time and pace! So, go on right ahead and bet on online casinos your chips will be up all the time! Good luck!
