The world's gone mad for chocolate milk. And when I say the world, I mean the north island of New Zealand. And even then, I only mean the people who have been able to get their hands on this stuff. It's bloody liquid gold. As Campbell Live has reported people are queuing, supermarket staff are being harrassed, there are two-bottle limits in place, and security guards have been employed. It's ridiculous.
I would have told you to believe the hype, until I heard local dairies were selling bootleg versions, and a black market had emerged on trade me.
It's definitely delicious. As a non-milk drinker (you could not pay me to drink a glass of plain milk straight, and if you saw my bank balance you'd know that is really saying something. Bleurgh.) I have always liked chocolate milk. I'm also a big fan of Lewis Road Creamery, their butter is incredible and I very much appreciate a small company doing one thing very well. Whittakers do it with chocolate, and Lewis Road with dairy products. Together, they're in a match made in utter heaven.
