Today is National Milk Day, a day set aside to commemorate the first delivering of milk to homes in sterilized glass bottles in 1878. Up until that time, milk was delivered by horse-drawn carts to homes and there was no refrigeration, making daily deliveries a must. This method also wasn’t very sanitary. Milk has come a long, long way since then!
Now fresh milk is just a grocery store away, but it still has to be kept cold and used by a certain date. If you love the idea of having milk on hand anytime without having to worry about keeping it chilled or using it within a week or so, then shelf safe milk is a great alternative. It’s Grade A, contains no added preservatives, and never has to be refrigerated until it’s opened. It’s milk unleashed!
Today, many major milk brands are offering single-serve sizes of shelf stable milk that can be stored in the pantry for up to 6 months without refrigeration. This is the ultimate in convenience! Whether you are at home or on the go, it’s fresh and ready to drink; just chill and serve. Shelf safe milk is also great to have on hand in case of emergencies, or even if you just forget to pick up a fresh gallon of milk at the store. I’ve personally tried the Horizon Organic Chocolate Milk and can tell you it’s delicious!
