I love chocolate milk. It is more than a passing fancy or occasional taste treat--if possible chocolate milk would be my primary form of nutrition.
It would be the base of my food pyramid, if you will. However, there is a very big problem in the world: it is nearly impossible to find chocolate
What's that, you say? Chocolate milk is available everywhere milk products are sold? Check again, chuckles! Somewhere along the road from tasty
goodness to all-embracing health requirements, the blessed union of chocolate and cow's milk became an unholy alliance of chemistry and false
promises. That's not chocolate milk. That's the spawn of Satan.
Look at the ingredients. Usually, right on the front of the container in question, it will say 1% chocolate milk. That's not chocolate milk.
That's chocolate water with white food-coloring. In fact, it's probably not even chocolate water. It seems that chocolate syrup is too expensive
to do right, so they've replaced the chocolate in the syrup with chocolate flavored chemicals. Look at a bottle of Hershey's syrup... that's

Neither do I. I was raised on unpasteurized, unseparated whole milk that was still warm from the udder. I'm 6'7", 225 lbs, and in perfect
(relative) health for a 46 year old male. Do you drink 2%? Shame on you! Have you ever considered that this is why you're a laundry-list of
Stand for America. Stand for Justice. Stand for all that is good and right in America. Stand proudly in the dairy aisle of your supermarket and
exclaim to all the world, "This is tasteless and bland, and I'm not going to drink it any more!!!" Chocolate milk, made with real chocolate and
real milk, is our human right and national heritage.
Healthniks, you can have your tasteless soy, your seaweed soup, and your fruit juice smoothies. KEEP YOUR DEMENTED MITTS OFF MY CHOCOLATE MILK!
