Market Pantry Chocolate Mint Milk

Sweet, minty, creamy, and modestly (but adequately) chocolaty, this is a fine addition to the holiday season that is tasty enough for year-round availability in the dairy case, though marketers ostensibly feel (perhaps rightly so?) that chocolate mint milk requires a gimmick for mainstream appeal.

Marburger Farm Dairy Chocolate Milk

Excellent creamy focus that strikes the delicate balance of flavor and mouthfeel. A strong salt quotient supports this and seems to be the main driver of the experience (not in a bad way), but the chocolate exists much more in the background, perhaps as a secondary or even tertiary feature behind cream and malt.

Spring House Chocolate Milk

An interesting, almost ‘slippery’ feel that you quickly warm to as the subtle flavor begins to sink in. It’s plenty creamy, and leaves a bit of a cocoa powder residue once the cream ebbs. There’s a sophistication to it that encourages the sip over the gulp, and I respect it for that.

Alpine Ridge Dairy Chocolate Goat Milk

The best chocolate goat milk I’ve had thus far! It’s extraordinarily well balanced from a salty/sweet/chocolaty perspective, and the cream is super-accessible and not overly ‘goaty’ (which may be a turnoff to some). All in all, a legitimately tasty feat of agri-confection.

Lapp Valley Farm Chocolate Milk

Akin to drinking salted, melted chocolate ice cream— if I didn't hate the words so much, I would use ‘hearty’ and ‘robust’ in the review— but I won’t despite their germaneness. Lovers of thick, creamy chocolate milk look no further.

Prairie Farms Lactose Free Chocolate Milk

Proof that lactose free can still be milky and natural feeling— this is a very welcomed, full-fat addition to the category. Does well to keep the sweetness on a leash and let the cocoa flavor shine, which it does more so in the latter half of the draw. This deserves to be more popular that I presume it to be.

Pot O Gold Pot Bellies Chocolate Milk

Unique combination of super thick, dense, creamy, and smooth— with a flavor that’s slightly more sweet than chocolaty. It’s best to take this in small, manageable sips— as an attempt to ‘chug’ could have serious repercussions— and also, the flavor is easier to appreciate at a more deliberate rate of consumption.
