Dairy Pure Milk and the Flip-Top Cap
Do you ever think to yourself that there is no room for improvement in some of our modern-day advances? Take milk jugs, for instance. They do their job quite nicely: they hold the milk, help keep it sanitary, are as light as possible, and have convenient handles for pouring. What more could be done to improve the jug?
Apparently, there is more, and the folks making Dairy Pure milk (Garelick Farms) have figured it out!
A couple of weeks ago Spouse came home with a gallon of Dairy Pure milk. Imagine my surprise when I went to pour the first cup and found a handy flip-top cap on the jug.
It’s a simple thing really, but it makes a difference!
No more loose caps misplaced by flighty children or snatched off the counter by errant black labs. Have you ever tried to keep a gallon of milk in the fridge using saran wrap as a cover? Definitely not adequate.
And a benefit I hadn’t anticipated: No more milk scum on the refrigerator shelf.
The flip-top cap prevents the dribble of milk down the side of the gallon that occurs when my kids pour milk. And of course, being kids, they never wipe the gallon before they put it back in the fridge.
Ironically, at the beginning of this week, I was contacted by a man who works with Dairy Pure milk. He had heard my name being declared far and wide (usually like this: “you are the meanest mommy in the world”) and decided to reach out to me. He wanted to know if I would be willing to write about Dairy Pure on this blog. Since I had already tried the product, it was an easy decision!
I have to admit, I take my milk for granted and never give a thought about what is inside the jug. But the kind gentleman pointed out to me that Dairy Pure milk takes quality seriously, as shown by their Five Point Purity Checklist (http://www.dairypuremilk.com/
· Our farmers pledge NO artificial growth hormones
· We test all milk for antibiotics
· Continuously quality tested to ensure purity
· Only from cows fed a nutritious diet
· Cold-shipped fresh from your trusted dairy within hours
So not only are their gallons the newest advancement in milk-holding receptacles, but their milk is good too!
If you have stuck it out and read my post through to the end, thank you! And I have a prize for you (maybe). The fine people who make Dairy Pure have offered to send my readers their very own Dairy Pure tote bags. But I am not sure how many they are willing to give away. If you are interested, send me a message through email with your address and I will pass it along to the milk people.
Wouldn’t you like to have one of these?
Disclaimer: I can’t be bought. But if someone wants to give me compensation for telling you about a product I like, I have no problem with that. I can assure you that the opinions expressed in this blog post are entirely my own and I haven’t been swayed by financial inducements. Nor by the promise of fame and glory. Maybe someday someone will come up with the right formula to make me sell out (probably some combination of peanut butter, chocolate and lying on a beach while someone else takes care of my kids), but until then I am keeping my integrity.
