The Chocolate Milk Fallacy

Posted on Tuesday, May 25th, 2021

Dave!I don't buy chocolate milk very often. The sugar content is too big a hit, so on the occasion that I happen to have milk in the house and want choccy milk I just use a heaping tablespoon of Nesquik and call it a day.

But last time I was at the grocery store, they had an entire gallon of choccy milk for some ridiculously low price... like $1.69 or something like that. Half the price of a half-gallon. I thought it might be because the expiry date was two days away or something, but it wasn't. I had two whole weeks to get through it!

SOLD!

Because surely I could drink a gallon in two weeks, right?

Yeah. Not so much.

I am barely half-way through it and the expiry date is tomorrow.

Now, I know that you can drink it past the expiry date, and I will probably try and have a glass for the rest of the week so I can get the most for my money... but it will likely not be because I've wanting a glass of choccy milk. And I will likely be dumping out a lot of it.

Oh well. I wish I could say that this was the first time I've been suckered into a "too good to be true" deal that didn't end up being that great. Though since it was cheaper than a half-gallon and I managed to get through half of the jug, I guess it kinda is?

Stuff like this messes with your head. In a day-and-age when groceries are just so darn expensive, I need to remember the chocolate milk fallacy... and that I am a single guy living alone who doesn't eat a lot.

That will save me from crying over spilt milk... as it goes down the drain.

    You could just freeze the rest of your chocolate milk. My late grandma froze milk all the time. As a widow she wanted to save money so she’d buy milk when it was on sale and then just freeze it until she was ready to use it.

      I had tried that the last time I bought excess. I did it into ice cube tray cubes, then put the cubes in a bag. But when I thawed them in the refrigerator, it tasted way off… so I don’t know what I did wrong.

  2. Speaking of sugar and chocolate milk. FWIW, my daughter has a seizure condition, and is on a neurologist suggested low carb diet. As such, the “chocolate milk” she’s allowed to drink are the Atkins Chocolate Shakes. Not strictly “milk”, _but_ they’re actually a bit tasty without the sugar. I actually like them myself.
