Gamer’s Gullet – Fairlife Milk Review
Solid package design
Coke Now Makes Milk –
When you think of the white liquid that comes from cows, you probably don’t think of Coca-Cola, the company that makes brown chemical based beverages that are extremely high in sugar and is pretty much poison to humans. The times have changed, however, as Coke has recently dipped their toe into the dairy pool with Fairlife, a premium milk drink that carries a steep price point.
With the organic marketing message backing it up, this new milk is available in a few different ways: regular white milk, reduced fat, chocolate, whole, and fat free. The gimmick behind this cow secretion is that quality milk comes from a quality beginning. Using sustainable farms and extraordinary animal care, happy cows make better milk is the recipe Fairlife uses to create all their milk products.
Maintaining happy cows come at a price, however, as each 52oz bottle (1.5L) is going to set you back close to $5. The good news is this milk is a healthier product that other milk drinks on the market. Sporting less sugar, more protein and additional calcium, Fairlife is a better-for-you dairy product.
Besides being a healthier dairy option, I am happy to report that Fairlife Chocolate milk is actually pretty tasty. While not as sweet in comparison to the sugar drenched Nestle competitor (which is a good thing), Fairlife is highly enjoyable. I have not tried the other Fairlife milk options, only the chocolate milk, but it is quite good. The after taste is slightly different and lingers a little long but the thick texture and consistency is on par with other popular chocolate milk brands. It is very similar to, again, Nestle Quik just with a better nutritional count. It also doesn’t have a floppy eared rabbit as their spokesperson.
As someone who enjoys chocolate milk and looking to increase protein in-take as a way to help build muscle after workouts, Fairlife is recommended if you don’t mind paying the premium price. If you have to put a Coca-Cola product into your body, this is the drink to seek out.
