Over the Moon Milk (Review and Giveaway)

Whether you are looking for extra calcium and vitamin D to help support your bone health or 11 grams of satisfying protein, Over the Moon provides a joyous start to your day.  And it helps keep you matter what the day brings.

My Thoughts:

Now that we have switched Savannah over to our milk, I always make a point to pick up tried and true brands of milk, so that I know she is getting the most of the calcium and vitamin D, found in milk.  This is one grocery item I don't skimp on, as I realized back in college that the cheaper milks were watered down, didn't taste like milk, and/or didn't last up to their expiration date. And, with a young child whose body is still developing and needs all the proper nutrients, I want to make sure she is getting what she needs when it comes to consuming milk products.  

Since moving to CT in 2007, I began buying Over the Moon's 1% low fat and their fat free milk for my family.  My husband and I use the fat free milk in our coffee and cereals, while my parents enjoy a cold glass of low fat milk after dinner or with a snack, when they are done visiting.  Because of this, I make sure to have both on hand for all to enjoy.  And, with Savannah now drinking milk, I find myself going through 2-3 gallon bottle of Over the Moon's low fat milk, on a weekly basis.  

So, when I was recently given the opportunity to review Over the Moon milk and share my thoughts with you, I didn't hesitate, as I already a fan of their milk.  Surprising though, I hadn't sampled their chocolate milk -- that was, until this review opportunity. Growing up , I was a huge chocolate and strawberry milk fan, but as I got older, I found it harder to find a brand that carried these flavors milks, and was not full of unnecessary sugars.  Because of these past experiences, I didn't know what to expect with the chocolate milk from Over the Moon.  

I made sure the milk was chilled prior to drinking, and when I took my first sip, I was amazed at how rich and creamy this chocolate flavored milk was.  You could actually take the milk chocolate, and not just sugar.  Don't tell my husband, but I drank the entire half gallon (with the help of Savannah - well, she had an 8 oz glass) in under 3 hours.  I couldn't get over how good this flavored milk tasted, and found myself heading back to the refrigerator to pour myself another glass, until it was gone. 

Since this initial sampling, I have continued to pick up the 1/2 gallon chocolate milk cartons from Over the Moon, and pour myself a glass as a treat, or when I want to unwind after a busy day with the girls.  If you are lucky enough to live in a state that sells Over the Moon, and you haven't tried this brand of milk yet, what are you waiting for?  You will be pleasantly surprised when you try a cold glass of this rich and creamy milk, and will see why I have switched and haven't looked back, when it comes to providing only the best milk for them.
