Just the tight a*se coming out in me but wouldn't it be cheaper and just the same dietary wise to buy full cream & water it down.

Yes, you're a tight a*se. wink.gif Yes, it would be cheaper, but watered down milk does not taste the same as Hilo.

Not the same. Maybe buy non homogenised whole milk and let the cream settle to the top and then scoop off half of the cream. The rest of the milk is still milk though, not water.

hehe... I saw "hilo milk", and thought "hilo skirts=mullet skirts, so hilo milk=???"

Plenty of research around that shows that there is no need to avoid drinking full cream milk, and that quite possibly, full cream milk might just be better for us. Full cream milk is only 4% fat, low fat milk is 2%.

Anyway... low fat milk tastes horrible.. Except for the low fat a2 milk... that one tastes like regular milk. But regular milk tastes crap compared to full cream a2 milk. (just my opinion)

I can't stand the taste of full cream milk and it upsets my stomach, so it's hilo for us. Even if t here is only 2% difference I'd rather not have the extra fat in my coffee anyway.............

My lite milk costs the same as full cream anyway so does hilo most places so it comes down to personal preference doesn't it?

Lately our house is hooked on A2, light or full cream (normally I don't like full fat milk but the rest of the house drinks it). It's soo expensive but gee its yum and better for you too!!
