The only way I can stomach it plain is for it to be ICE COLD skim milk. I do think anything other than skim would make me gag. I can do it on cereal, in recipes, etc, like you, but a plain glass of milk.... well, the appeal simply eludes me. I know I should drink it for the calcium and vitamin D - but I can get those in supplements and they're added to my orange juice, which I drink all the time.
    r.g., this will sound foolish, but I can't even watch people drink it, or look at a gallon sitting on a table. I either have to block the view or look away.

    And I don't understand why people never have a pen and ask to use my pen. The answer is, "No." I wouldn't think of being without a pen.

    I don't like the taste of milk either. Years ago I found some way to sort of block my taste buds when drinking it -- I know that sounds weird, and I have no idea how to explain it, but when I was little, I'd actually hold my nose -- and I take a bite of something right after to change the taste in my mouth.

    I'm of the age that my mom used to put our vitamins in our milk-yuck! I can't stand it to this day.

    Re: Things you have never understood!

    I find this milk discussion fascinating, because I'm one of those folks who has always loved milk. Many years ago I switched to skim milk, but recently I was given a glass of whole milk at a restaurant by mistake, and was shocked how thick it was. I remember thinking it had the consistency of melted ice cream and wondered how in the world I stomached drinking whole milk growing up. But I can go through a gallon of milk by myself in less than a week because I drink 2-3 glasses a day. Poor Lucy, having to hold your nose in order to drink something sounds awful.

    Even as a milk lover, putting vitamins in milk sounds ghastly, famita.

    Oh 'shay, what about warm milk?

    I forgot to mention that one earlier, but that idea just makes me sick. Nu-uh, no way is warm milk going in my mouth.

    Hot cocoa or something else made with milk is acceptable. Warm milk is not.

    you can add me to the milk haters club. I've never been able to stomach plain old milk. I can drink chocolate milk but it has to be ice cold. I'll just stick with my iced tea.

    Well then I'd better join roseskid in the milk lovers club. I drink some glasses a day. And is there anything better than a glass of ice cold milk with cinnamon rolls fresh from the oven?
