got milk? Magic Milk Straws

Today was Day #6 of Chocolate Cow Theme Week.

I inserted two of today's "got milk?" Chocolate Magic Milk Straws (marketed and distributed by FMMI in Minnesota) into a glass of milk. And when I sipped milk through the straw, it became lightly flavored with chocolate. These straws were partially open at both ends and were filled with little round, chocolate "beads" that dissolved slowly as they interacted with liquid, turning the milk a very light chocolate color.  A very clever idea.

I liked that the milk was less sweet than chocolate milk usually available in stores. According to the label, these straws contained no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, and were gluten free. Even better.
