Homo Milk


Five years ago I wrote about milk bags.  My family drinks a lot of milk, and we buy bags of milk.  Canadians will be familiar with the three bags of milk totalling 4 litres that are so common in these parts.

As peculiar as that sounds to an American, it's not the Canadian milk drinker fact they find most amusing.  That would be our term for homogenized milk.  We call it homo milk.

Tell an American you enjoy homo milk and they'll likely giggle or laugh hysterically.  Americans call it whole milk, because homo milk has different connotations... not that there's anything wrong with that.

Personally, I've never been a fan of homo milk.  I was raised on 2% and recently started enjoying 1%.  As a result, the below Neilson Trutaste milk that "tastes like homo" does not appeal to me.
