We drink a lot of it. Cereals in the morning. Copious cups of tea and Horlicks at night. ::)

I couldn't drink milk by the glass, but do have it on cereal and a small amount in coffee. I have black tea, as far as I'm concerned tea is revolting with milk.

I love milk ! The creamier and colder, the better.  I like to buy the Jersey stuff now and then.. I could drink it by the pint, but have to stop after half, and leave some for coffee, which I like milky and strong.

Years ago when I was deluded into thinking that skimmed stuff was better for you, husband decided rather than put the stuff in his coffee ( why bother - the coffee stayed brown ) he went without.

I got wise and stopped using that wishy washy stuff, and wouldn't buy anything else but full cream now.

I do usually have skimmed milk, in tea, coffee and on cereal, I don't drink it on its own.

I do buy milk products, cheese, yogurt, rice pud sometimes.

I always use skimmed milk, I much prefer it, but I'm happy to have semi skimmed occasionally.
I do love cream on puds  though

When I was young. I used to try and get the top of the milk first, before anyone else had a chance.  I was always told to shake the bottle first ( but never did if I could help it !)

I remember buying a little round rubber gadget which had a tube going through it.  The longer end in the middle went in the top of the bottle (you pulled it down to where the cream ended) and the other end came out of the side.  I can't remember how it worked, squeezed I think, but it then siphoned out the top of the milk which I then used on desserts etc.

I haven't found it, think it pre-dated the internet.

I remember that Silvermist.

I only use full fat milk for milk puddings.   I prefer semi skimmed in tea and coffee and I prefer skimmed if I drink it.

Oh we would never have been allowed to take the cream, my mother poured it off into a separate jug, for puddings etc.

I remember when the bluetits first learned to peck through the lids so my mother got a box for the milkman to put the bottles in if she wasn't at the door when they arrived.

Nowadays all the milk I see seems to be homogenised, so if you want cream you have to buy it separately.

I do remember the frozen milk when young at the door when delivered.
I am fine with semi skimmed milk now though buy at a store.

Yes, and children putting their bottles on the radiators to thaw out.

(I freeze it now deliberately as I've started getting it delivered weekly to save such frequent trips to the Co-op, as the stuff in the local shop isn't reliably fresh.)

I miss my 1/3 pint daily dose bottle from school days, stolen from us by that nasty lady who became future PM.

However, I must admit the classroom often stank of stale stuff especially in winter days.
