A question about milk

What kind do you store? I don't drink milk at all, but my family does. I've tried storing regular powdered milk (YUK!) but we never used it before it went bad. It's not really cheap, either. What is the best brand you've tried? What kind of container does it come in? Does it taste good? How long does it last? I would definitely use it for cooking and my kids might like to have chocolate milk for comfort in an emergency.

Morning moo tastes pretty good and I should actually break my big bucket open, but I have so much of the nasty stuff to use up, I just haven't let myself yet.  When I remember, I try to mix up some of the dry and mix it into the fresh milk when it's getting about half empty.  That way, we're stretching our budget and using the nasty stuff.  Nobody has noticed yet.  :)

I use a milk....nt sure what it is but it is vanilla milk and i can even stand drinking it. I use the gross stuff for baking:) i also store a shelf stable milk i get from a dairy. I keep flavored milk and regular milk and we drink thr flavored stuff on a daily basis so it gets rotated pretty good.

Can you get dry flavored milk or is is a shelf stable liquid?

I just found a great website that suggested Morning Moo. I'll have to look into it. They claim it tastes better because there is fat in it.

Its a shelf stable liquid milk. No powder. It is gossner farms/ dairy and i ampretty sure you can order it online but i am sure it is more expensive. I just drive to logan ut and buy it. My best friend owns a dairy and supplies them with milk so it is my way of supporting her

The guy that works at the warehouse here told us that he puts a little pit of olive oil in his milk and it makes it just right.  He is right, it made it much better but you have to shake it well each time you use it.

The shelf reliance Thrive instant milk is really good.  It's really expensive though, but it tastes like fresh milk.

I just wanted to add there are three kinds of powdered milk non instant( cannery), instant, and milk alternative. Morning moos is a ilk alternatve and is great or drinking but shouldnt be used in a lot of reipes. It also has a lot of extra stuff in it besides milk. Non instant you have to mix in hot water then can e chilled. In baking ou can just mix powder with dry ingredients and water with wet. Non instant you can mix with cold water butyou also need twice as much powder for the same amount of milk. So you have to consider what ou want to use it for

I had to break out a can of morning moo yesterday because we ran out of milk and won't be getting more until Friday.  It's actually pretty good.  You can tell that it's not fresh milk, but it doesn't taste awful.
