|Down here, it was usually Metzgers, Falfurrias or Foremost milk|
I think HEB might have to expand it's "dairy" section once again. Actually, many of the items in there are not even remotely "dairy" products. I thought it was pretty good when we could choose between whole, low-fat or skim milk. Then of course, the low fat was divided into 2% and 1 % (fat).
However, the boom has resulted in the "non-milk" milks. These include mostly lactose-free types such as soy, almond and coconut "milks. Don't worry, you can still choose between low-fat lactose free and fat-free, lactose free. The scary part is that some of the newer, cutting edge milks don't even have to be refrigerated and have a pretty long shelf life. Maybe they'll start charging more for this particular type being that the store has had it for so long that's it's actually "aged".
No wonder many of us long for the simpler days when the milkman would leave a gallon of cold, whole milk on our "galerias", or front porch. Once in great while, if you were lucky, you might find a tall, icy cold quart of frothy chocolate milk right alongside.
