Shatto Root Beer Milk

I love root beer. I drink it whenever it's offered except for those occasions a brewpub brews their own root beer, I choose beer 10 times out of 10. But that is the only exception. I love root beer dum dums, root beer barrels candy and root beer floats. When I heard that Shatto makes a root beer milk I was immediately intrigued.

I got my chance to try Shatto's root beer milk this morning. Someone brought donuts into the office and I thought some milk would go perfect with a donut. So I walked over to Cosentino's market and picked up a pint. My plans to enjoy a donut with my milk were quickly dashed when I got pulled into a meeting right when I arrived back at my desk. I took my root beer milk with me.

I took my first drink as I sat down in the meeting room and was immediately impressed. It was everything I'd hoped it would be. I felt like dancing. The root beer flavor wasn't overpowering it was nearly perfectly balanced. I felt like telling everyone in the meeting that I was drinking the best pint of milk I've ever had in my life, but I bit my tongue. I only told the person sitting next to me.

Now I think Shatto needs to concentrate on perfecting the grandest dream known to man, a stout milk. That's about the only milk that could top root beer milk. I guess I'll settle for trying banana milk and getting my fill of root beer milk in the meantime.

shatto root beer milk = ambrosia. and i really don't like root beer floats, but damn if that's what it tastes like. but, really delicious and without the greasy quality of the real thing. you know when all the ice cream gets melty and gross.
I also highly recommend Shatto's newest addition -- their ice cream. It actually has an expiration date on it. Who's ever heard of such freshness?

I had caught a lot of comments about the rootbeer milk and bought a quart. I was so excited I opened it up in the parking lot and drank straight out of the bottle. If it hadn't been so late, I'd have finished it off then and there and picked up another one or two to take back to the family. I haven't had pop in 19 years and root beer is one thing I miss, that and a peach float if I'm in Iconium.

It's been a few months and many quarts since we discovered the root beer. I think we've tried them all but root beer is our family favorite. My waist's only wish was they could make it with skim.

I used to get root beer milk from a local meat market where i am from, it wasn't your brand but still so delicious!!!! i am the same i also will drink almost nothing more then rootbeer. as far as the banana milk another good selection!! but can only find it Nestle (the bunny) if you ever find it please let me know. i live in Michigan so it would have to be a larger chain store or a website.

I love a good root beer and would love to try this. Hopefully we will get it in Australia one day.
