Organic Valley Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk Review

Organic Valley Reduced Fat Chocolate MilkOrganic Valley dug themselves into a big hole in my eyes with their overly sweet concoction dubbed Organic Valley Vanilla Lowfat Milk. However, I must say that they redeemed themselves with their Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk.

One sip and you will be in chocolate heaven. The flavor is alarmingly similar to a melted fudgsicle ... so much so that I think it IS a bunch of melted fudgsicles yummy. Seriously, if you try this for no other reason than to test my "fudgsicle theory" it will be worth it!

The ingredient list is organic (of course) and short (just the way I like it). The only wholesome ingredients that make their way into this chocolaty treat are Grade A Reduced Fat Milk, Unrefined Cane Sugar, Dutch Cocoa, Salt, Carrageenan and Vitamins A & D. Each 8 ounce cup of Organic Valley Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk has 170 calories, 5 grams of total fat (8% of the RDA) including 3 grams of saturated fat (14% of the RDA), 20 mg of cholesterol (6% of the RDA), 250 mg of sodium (11% of the RDA), 23 grams of sugar and 8 grams of protein. Each cup of nutrient rich milk also provides 10% of the RDA for Vitamin C, 30% for Calcium, 4% for Iron and 25% for Vitamin D.

There is quite a bit of fat and sugar, but it is a little less than Horizon Organic Chocolate Reduced Fat Milk - although it's all natural, I just can't see why they have to add so much sugar. I guess you have to pick between your diet and natural products with this one.

Organic Valley also offers single serving, shelf-stable containers of low fat 1% milk, which is very tasty (but not quite as close to a fudgsicle). But luckily, there are other lower fat (and sugar) ways to get a chocolatey treat - I'm talking about Healthy Choice Chocolate Fudge Bars, which have only 1 gram of fat and 2 grams of sugar).

I paid $3.00 for a 4-cup carton of Organic Valley Reduced Fat Chocolate Milk. Coupons are usually available at the Organic Valley website.
