I love milk. I really love chocolate milk. I’m especially picky about my chocolate milk. Until last year I always made my own chocolate milk at home, unless I could find whole chocolate milk in the store. Then, I discovered Ultimate Chocolate Milk at BJ’s. It’s a 1% lowfat chocolate milk that tastes as good as some of the whole chocolate milks out there. It’s truly the best lowfat chocolate milk I’ve ever had. Naturally, when I was contacted about TruMoo Chocolate Milk, I was curious how it would taste so I accepted the offer to try it.
ABOUT TRUMOO 1% LOWFAT CHOCOLATE MILK
Dean Foods – known for its 35 regional dairy brands across the country – is launching TruMoo, a potential solution to the chocolate milk debate which meets the proposed USDA school nutrition guidelines. (Please see below for a list of Dean Foods’ family of brands now making TruMoo.)
With the introduction of TruMoo, more than 26 million pounds of sugars – or 40 billion calories – have been removed from milk served in schools and retail across the country. TruMoo is made with nutrient-rich white milk and contains no high fructose corn syrup or artificial growth hormones. In addition, TruMoo’s lowfat and fat-free varieties contain 15 to 20 percent less added sugar and 10 to 15 fewer calories than Dean Foods’ previous chocolate milk formula. Made with white milk, it still contains the nine essential nutrients growing kids need.
The Dean Foods family of brands making TruMoo locally with fresh white milk include:
- Alta Dena®
- Berkeley Farms®
- Brown’s Dairy®
- Country Fresh®
- Garelick Farms®
- LAND O LAKES®
- Lehigh Valley Dairy Farms®
- Louis Trauth Dairy Inc.®
- Morning Glory®
- Meadow Brook®
- Meadow Gold®
- Model Dairy®
- Oak Farms®
- Purity Dairies
- Shenandoah’s Pride®
- Swiss Premium™
- T.G. Lee®
I received a gift pack containing several samples of TruMoo 1% Lowfat Chocolate Milk. The chocolate milk is delicious, and doesn’t really have that lowfat taste that so many lowfat chocolate milks seem to have. I liked it as much as the Ultimate Chocolate Milk that I’ve been buying for a year. That made sense when I took a closer look at the bottle and realized that it was made by the same company, and if I understand correctly is replacing the Ultimate Chocolate Milk that I’ve been buying because it contains less calories and less sugar. One 8 ounce serving contains 150 calories. Not only does TruMoo taste fantastic, but it’s made with real milk and contains calcium, protein, potassium, phosphorus, riboflavin and vitamins A, D and B12.
TruMoo is available in gallons, half gallons, quarts and single serve bottles, as well as in education themed containers in select schools across the country.
