    I drink (well eat my cereal and Oreos with) 2% milk. I think the label says it has 37% fat or something. Hubby can drink skim milk but it looks disgusting and tastes worse. :p So is there much taste difference between 2 and 1% milk?

    Today at Target I chose 2% milk because Ween has a song about it. :eek:
    I honestly have no idea.

    Yes, I won't drink 1% plain, but I like 2%! Drinking whole milk just reminds me of how bad it is for you, so 2% is my solution.

    I used to drink raw milk, that was awesome! I can't get it around my school though. Apparently in places where the median income level is over $100k they are too good for raw milk :p Here in hick town every farmer is selling it though. I should pick some up this weekend actually..

    LOL Yeah, 1% is what you get when you put a shot of 2% in a milk jug then fill it up with warm tap water. GROSS!

    Yes, I grew up drinking skim, but my bf won't drink anything but 2%. For the last few years my mom has been buying 1% though and I like it best now. Can still taste the difference between that and 2% though

    BIG difference between 1% and 2%. I like the healthier 1%, but like the better flavor of 2%, so we alternate between the two.

    It'd be perfect if they had a 1.5%.

    1% milk tastes like water.
    I drink 2%. I really like whole milk, but haven't had it in a long time.

    I grew up on 2% and love it. Actually I just finished a glass. Anyway, I don't drink anything below 2%. 1%/skim look blue to me and don't taste very good. Fairly recently my family has started buying whole and it is pretty good.
