I would be scared to drink that. Is it really milk? Are you sure?

I pay 14.00 a gallon for raw, unpastuerized organic milk from the rancher up the hill.

The local coop sells organic milk for 9.99 a gallon.

Indiana is cheap, eh.
Holly chit! I would drink gas at those prices.

Read an article a few months ago. Theres a huge surplus of milk out there as less people are drinking milk and theres more competition from other alternatives like almond milk.

supply chain management. Walmart is the best at it. I would guess that their milk gets from farm to shelf way faster than trader joes milk.

Publix is where you shop if you want to overpay for inferior quality products. (Sorry to my THT friends here that love the place, but I'm not paying $1 for a f'ing lemon in Florida). I have nothing good to say about Publix, sorry.

Trader Joe's is where shop if you want to get great quality food at a great price. (You still want to watch the salt content, etc. - but overall, the best place for a bulk of the things you eat.)

Aldi is where you shop if yo know what you're buying. (Savvy shoppers only.)

Costco is where you shop, again, if you know what you're buying. (Savvy shoppers only.)

Walmart - can't help you there. I wouldn't buy food at Walmart. But I did recently buy some 2-Stroke oil there. LOL.

Find a local farm or company that delivers fresh milk and you will never go back.

I've always wondered how the milk knows when to go bad. I have no doubt it would know how to read its own label, but I just don't think its eyes are good enough to see the tiny print.

There was a period where WMart tried their own brand,' Great Value' in a big way. They still have a lot of it but I don't think it went over all to well
so most name brands are available. Take sliced Jalapenos. The cheaper brands are on a completely separate isle. While Old El Paso has their own section next isle over..

My mom was famous for ignoring the "best by" dates. She'd give the milk a sniff test, and if it passed we drank it. I don't remember that she discarded much food, period.

I give stuff the sniff test, and my wife goes bonkers. She thinks food goes toxic on the expiration date.

If milk is not curdled, and smells okay, DRINK IT.

But I've only been to Trader Joe's once and the eye candy was much better than WM.
