and you had to shake the bottle to mix the cream in, if the sparrows hadnt pecked through the top first! and it wasnt just gold top that had cream it was ordinary silver as well

Me and my sister used to fight over being the first to open the milk so we could drink the cream.

If I drank it now, I would probably throw up. :?

You can still buy full cream milk in most supermarkets - and I pretty sure most milkman will deliver it as well - in a bottle!
Sainsburys sell it as Jersey milk.

The milk may be full cream, but it is homogenised,(the cream is blended in) I haven't seen milk with the cream in seperate layer on the top for many, many years.

Yuk, I hate milk and it all roots from that stuffin the bottle.
If you didnt shake the bottle it would flob a lump of ploppy cream all on your Frosties, then one day you dismiss it as "just the cream of the top of the milk" and its not....its gone sour!!!!

But then again how useless were the bags of milk?
My nan used to walk miles to the "Lo-cost" just for her bags of milk because she could feeze them. And coz they were 3p cheaper.

Bags of milk...? I hope they weren't brown paper ones!

Cream on top always made me hurl...

BUT many a night was spent 'acquiring' printed milk bottles for the collection as a teenager......from neighbour's doorsteps!

I'm sure I've written this before somewhere, but our neighbour's (large) cat was a genius at clawing through milk-bottle foil tops to drink the cream - and I never saw him knock a bottle over.

Both, if it's full fat. Used to get blue, changed to green and I never have looked back. I had some the other day and gagged at how sickly it was!!!

Just don't try the red (skimmed) stuff. It's like making love in a canoe (f***ing close to water!)

That's what I drink all the time these days (cholesterol diet.) You're certainly describing the taste politely (but then the less I like it the better for me... :( )

I like full fat milk the best, preferably homogenised, but I buy semi-skimmed. Skimmed milk is vile in your tea; wouldn't like to try it neat, as it were.

We should be milkmen (and women). It would probably make it easier for Dave to pull!
