It does look like a lot of food. It makes me hungry for a baked potato.

I just noticed this thread has made it to the 200th page of 30 per page.

Worth, what brand powdered milk do you use?

I see Saco Mix n Drink is available at HEB with 3 quart packets per box for $2.98

I found Milkman powdered milk I have been looking for online. It's a 12 guart pack for $23.99

Clearly the Mix n Drink is cheaper, but does it still have the creamy taste the milkman has? I have been looking for that for years, turns out their facility on the west coast had earthquake damage and they closed it. With the public wanting it back they are now making it in a new facility in Wisconsin.

I don't remember what thread I posted about the smaller bottles and the price having not been lowered on Promised Land Milk, but you can now see a few posts online and people are not happy. Same excuse they gave me when I emailed them my very unhappy consumer message. Oh and the quarts are smaller too, just a way to rip off consumers.

Since the cost of Promised Land Milk was not lowered with the smaller bottles I am looking for an alternative. I already started buying the Central Market 1/2 gallons at HEB which is far cheaper than Promised Land, but it is not nearly as creamy.

Okay, thanks Worth. I'm headed to the store today so I'll check out what they have. I'm ordering some Milkman from Amazon too.

Marketing ploys aside, I keep on using Promised Land milk as it is the closest taste to right out of the cow and cooled I can get short of keeping a cow. Jersey milk is some of the best milk there is on the market, for me, the best tasting and the best to cook with, too.

But each to their own. I've only used powdered milk in the dry ingredients for baking, never as a milk to serve or cook otherwise with, so I am no help there.

It's the darn principle of the whole thing. I won't pay the same amount for less milk. That is just ridiculous. Now if they had just raised their price on the milk by 50 cents or something that would have been okay by me. But when I am getting three bottles of milk for $3.98 each at a time instead of two to make up for the missing milk I am not a happy camper. Nobody should be, that 64 oz bottle is now 52 ounces. No way will I pay the same amount of money for that. Central Market is good, but not nearly as good as promised land. Not to mention how they insulted my intelligence with their answer back as to why their bottles were smaller. I am not pleased with them at all.

Excerpt-this response came to me in January, no change in price anywhere. I am not the only one who isn't happy. Just by making the bottle smaller does not reduce the overall calories and fat in product. In bottle maybe, but their health conscience consumers one is what threw me. They already had a quart size, which they have now reduced in size as well. It is corporate greed.

"We decided to reduce the bottle size to reduce the number of overall calories, fat, and price point per bottle. We are simply trying to provide a bottle that is more convenient for stores to stock in their shelves, easier for health conscience consumers to drink (at the smaller sizes), and sold at an overall lower price point".

Worth... that baked potato, carnitas, and onion look scrumptious!

I guess we've been blessed here.. a gallon of milk has cost under $2.00 for months now.. and my family sure goes through them!
