My kids love to go grocery shopping with me. Me, not so much. When I bring them, we end up with way more “junk” then I planned on getting. One of their favorite things to sneak into the cart is juice boxes. They love Capri Sun, Kool-Aid Kool Burst (Mia calls it Vampire Juice), pretty much anything that comes in a box and sits on the shelf. I don’t mind getting them and sticking them in lunch boxes or for trips in the car, but there are times that they need something more than sugary “juice.” My kids LOVE chocolate milk, but it hasn’t always been a convenient thing to take with us.
When they were little we hauled sippy cups all over and I hated every minute of it. Every time they dropped them, milk would spit out of the cup then drip. I can’t even tell you how happy I am to be beyond that! Milk has made it’s way to the shelf with the juice boxes. Warm milk? Umm, I needed some convincing, too. We were sent a variety of Shelf Stable Milks to give a try. Milk Unleashed is the perfect place to get all of the facts and tips of shelf safe milk. I was a little uneasy about trying the non refrigerated milk, so I stuck mine in the fridge.
My kids all picked out a chocolate milk, they didn’t care about the brand they are kids, they’re all the same. I had vanilla and Josh had the regular milk. Everyone instantly approved of not only the flavor, but they straws were super cool. We are easily excited at our house, I guess. Personally, I am not sure that I would dare drink it without it being cold, but I would feel much more comfortable sending them in lunch boxes or in the car knowing that my kids are going to get a much healthier drink. Even the chocolate milk has all of the vitamins and nutrients that regular milk has but with only a little added sugar. It’s Delicious and Nutritious!
