We have been getting our milk delivered to our house for the past 5 years. It comes in 1/2 gallon glass jugs and is a little more expensive but its damn convient and it taste awesome. Nobody in my family will touch store bought milk anymore.

so just wondering how many people here get their milk delivered.



http://www.royalcrestdairy.com/ << not the dairy we use but there are 3 others in Denver that delivery milk.

Used to ... I don't recall a big difference in taste, but there was a big difference in price. I don't use enough milk to satisfy their minimums though, so I canceled the service.

Just got hit up for it again yesterday, and they say they have changed the minimum purchase plan, and gave me 1/2 gallon complimentary, so I'll do a taste test tonight and review the new plan.

They make all kinds of claims for it ... hormone free cattle, 2 weeks fresher then store-bought, their bottles block UV which breaks down the nutrients in store-bought, etc.

Not sure how much is BS marketing, and how much is fact :confused:

lmao.....i think they've been replaced by the FED EX/ UPS ...in recent years

They're making a comeback, but it's going to be an uphill battle. Women love the brown UPS shorts.

you should try the chocolate milk sometime. but to have a min order is standard, they cant afford to have a milk truck driving all over the country dropping off just 1/2 gallon bottles to 20 houses.

i have 3 kids and we easily go thorugh 6 gallons a week of 2%.

I have 2 kids half time. When my family was still intact, the minimum order was fine.
I think before you had to get some minimum every week, but now can skip weeks. Have to look at the flyer.

Wow that is very cool. Are the bottles returnable like they were when I was a kid? I don't understand why returnable bottles for milk, coke etc ever went away since it seems to me that taking a bottle and washing it and refilling it is a lot more efficient than piling them up in a landfill waiting for some recyclable use. We don't have any home delivery of milk around here that I know of.
