Whatchu talkin bout, I don’t need milk. No one does, after infancy.

Coconut milk and all others are purchased at Whole Foods or Fresh Market. That is until Trader Joe’s opens down the street from my home.

The milk I buy generally cost $2 per aspetic pack.

Market Basket. Either Stonyfield organic or Market Basket’s organic. $3.00 – $3.40 per half gallon. Also, Westsoy Organic Unsweetened Vanilla soymilk. $2.00 – $2.50 per quart.

Asda, i’ve genuinely no idea how much it costs.

Anywhere it’s BGH free. And it’s usually less than $3.00 for a half gallon. I love milk.

Trader Joe. It’s about $1.35/qt. It almost always starts to go sour before I finish the quart.

I bought it at Trade Joe’s for years because it is rBGH free. But then they switched to plastic cartons, I don’t like buying beverages in plastic. So now I buy a local dairy (Clover Stornetta) at either Whole Foods or at non-chain grocery stores.

I pay $2.38 a half gallon at both places.

@zenvelo GA. There is someone who knows what’s in their foods.

I don’t drink milk and thus don’t buy it.

Cow’s milk is designed only for baby cows. I don’t touch the stuff.

Costco. Gallon of 2% is about $3.39 or so. It’s about a dollar more at a regular supermarket.

Makes my insides turn, so I don’t buy it!

@gailcalled so you prefer the stuff coming out of goats and sheep?

Uh…at the store?

Sorry, but this was the perfect opportunity for a Beavis and Butthead moment. :D

I get mine at IGA. I use milk mostly for coffee, but I love a big glass of milk every now and then.

Also in Canada, our milk comes in bags. I love how it looks like a pillow

I always get Québon, a brand from Québec. Although the picture here shows the bags, I get the 1L carton, which doesn’t even cost two dollars.

Trader Joe’s. I think their cream top milk is from Straus Creamery.

But, really, I just popped in to say that I found it amusing
that you jumped from a question about murder to a question about milk. Ha.

I get my semi skimmed milk from a local 24 hour supermarket, Tesco. It costs £1:18 for a half gallon which is comparatively cheap ($1:84).
@Nimis Ha. I see what you mean, it is a bit incongruous.

0mg what is BGH??? Another thing to worry about, mumbling to myself as I look to google!

gailcalled's avatar

@ZEPHYRA: Rice and Almond Milk works just fine for me.

@rooeytoo Probably Austrazlia would never consider adding hormones to cows to make them produce more milk and to significantly reduce their lifespan.

Here in the US, it is purchased at Kroger’s. Not much is used, so I just buy the store brand in a ½ gal. jug. I’m not sure how much it costs.

In the UK, it is purchased either through an online order with Tesco’s that comes in boxes that can be stored on a shelf and not refrigerated. There is also a mom & pop shop several doors down that sells it should we run out before the next order.

From the grocery store, I have bought Farmland hormone-free products for >20 years. Their Fat-Free Half & Half has no corn syrup in it, and is nice and rich in my coffee. I’ll but Stonyfield’s organic milks too, sometimes. We recently started buying mild from a smaller dairy via our farm market, but I haven’t been all that impressed with their skim, so I may switch back to Farmland’s Skim Plus.

jca's avatar

At Costco, their milk is hormone free so that’s why I like buying it there, in addition to their low prices.

zenvelo's avatar

@rooeytoo BGH is Bovine Growth Hormone, given to cows to produce more milk. Even worse is rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone) which is genetically engineered BGH.

BGH and rBGH have been linked to increased rates of breast cancer and early onset puberty.

I think when you see young(er) girls who have hips and significant chest sizes, it’s due to hormones in our foods.
