I remember the days of old, where the milk man would collect your empty bottles and replace them with fresh full cream milk. On cold days (Qld), you’d often find the classic layer of velvety cream right at the very top. Now this milk attempts to replicate that for nostalgia (down to the shape of cheep single use platic bottle) because our milk has been manipulated so much since those days of old, that it’s barely recognisable so people are switching to the array of non bovine milk available. This milk is strange, and I say that because it contains two ingredients. Milk and cream. Ok, why doesn’t Paul’s normal full cream milk develop its own layer of cream? And what’s in the cream?? Our labeling laws don’t require companies to list ingredients of ingredients but if you put this milk in tea or coffee, you may notice bubbles of oil forming on the top. This didn’t happen to our old full cream milk either. So Paul’s, you’ve had to re-engineer your over engineered milk. An ingenious solution to a problem which shouldn’t have existed.
