In our house, milk is a staple. The boys drink it daily and, if they had it their way, it is all the boys would drink. I encourage them throughout the day to have 100% juices for breakfast and water to quench their thirst but, when they sit down to the dinner table, it’s a tall glass of milk that they want and expect with their meal.
When the boys were toddlers they drank whole milk but eventually we reduced their fat intake to 2% and now the whole family drinks skim.
Over the Moon Milk has 34% more calcium and 37% more protein plus Vitamin D in the low-fat and 1% versions; 45% more and 37% more protein plus vitamin D in the chocolate version. Since chocolate milk is viewed as a ‘treat’ in our home it puts me ‘Over the Moon’ that there it includes no high fructose corn syrup and none of the milk choices included artificial growth hormones either. Which means their all happy to consume it and I’m all happy that I can serve it!
This week our family has enjoyed sampling Over the Moon milk on cereal and stirred in oatmeal, blended breakfast smoothies (check out the Over the Moon Recipes!), drank it straight up tall with dinner and of course we used it as a dunk for our homemade molasses cookies and we have loved the taste. There really is a difference in flavor.
Over the Moon milk is on sale this week at Shaw’s for $3.00 a half-gallon. Maine is a ‘dairy state’ and so we cannot use the wonderful $1.00/1 Any 64 oz. Over the Moon Milk coupon that one can print off their facebook page. But all the rest of you New Englander’s certainly can! I strongly encourage you to pick up a half-gallon this week and give this yummy product a try.
Just because Over the Moon thinks all of you are as special as I do, three (3) lucky Money Saving Maine-iac readers are eligible to win this cool Over the Moon Sipper cup!
