Hood Simply Smart Milk review and contest info

My family is a 1% milk drinking family. We can't do skim and I don't want all the extra fat from 2% or whole, although they are certainly creamier and I know my son and husband would prefer that. But low fat wins out because I do the grocery shopping!

Hood, however, would like to change that. They make Simply Smart Milk, which has "all the taste, without all the fat." The low-fat milk is designed to taste richer and creamier than regular low-fat milk. According to Hood, they have developed "an innovative and natural way to deliver a low-fat milk that still tastes delicious by using ultra-filtration to remove some of the water that otherwise makes low-fat milk lack taste and texture. Because Simply Smart offers "all the taste, without all the fat" it is a great, healthy substitute for recipes that call for milk."

To test out the claim, I was sent some gift certificates for the milk. I went for the 1%, since that is what we normally drink. The milk was definitely creamier but it otherwise tasted like regular milk. I have to say that, at first, I wondered if it would taste funky but it didn't! I only noticed the creamier texture.

Another thing that I liked about the milk is that Hood states it is committed to purchasing milk from farmers who do not use artificial growth hormones.

Hood Simply Smart Milk is sold by me at Hannaford and Wal-Mart and was right in line with the price of other milks.
