How about Milk of Magnesia :)
How about low-fat half and half?
A first world problem even if you can call it that.
Having solved all of the nation’s problems...
These politicians should be ashamed of themselves.
Glad to see These guys tackling the really important stuff. /s
Or a stupid people problem. The dairy industry argues that they've found consumers who truly believe that soy, almond, coconut milk, etc. has the same nutritional content as cow's milk.
These reps are right, it is misleading and dangerous. I knew a kid who drank almond milk during his childhood and he was nuts as an adult. Thank goodness Congress is on the case.
How bout Congress get the heck out of the way and stop trying to play nanny to everyone.
I guess there probably would be someone out in the world that my think it’s milk, but I’m willing to bet dime to a donut, majority of people know that it’s not real milk, but a milk substitute.
Nanny state politicians....the reason our country is in the shape that it is today.
1: a fluid secreted by the mammary glands of females for the nourishment of their young; especially cow's milk used as a food by humans.
2: a liquid resembling milk in appearance...(a) the latex of a plant, (b) the juice of a coconut...and (c) the contents of an unripe kernel of grain.
Or the milk of human kindness?
