Since writing my acclaimed milk review in which I sampled several different milks and shared my thoughts on the substance, I’ve been labeled the KE’s go-to “milk girl” (kinda like the “horse girl” from elementary school but, you know, with milk), so I kind of have to write this review. So here it goes: When it comes to beverages, milk is about as American as it gets. With the average American consuming 199 pounds of liquid milk each year, Americans rank sixteenth in the world for milk consumption, and it’s easy to see why. Milk is packed with all sorts of nutrients that help nourish and strengthen your bones. Likewise, it’s a good source of protein and helps prevent weight gain.
