to think that the milk tastes watered down at the moment.

Semi-skimmed milk tastes more like skimmed milk to me, the last couple of days.
I had to pour a ton in my tea.
Anybody else noticed it? Is it something to do with the milk war?

My semi-skimmed tastes fine. It comes from M&S though, who apparently don't fuck the farmers off as much as other supermarkets grin

M & S milk it is for me then!

I get co op or Asda and it's the same as always

Seems unlikely, there's a surplus of milk not a shortage.

Even though fat contents are standardised for retail, milk fat levels decline in the summer months due to feed, nutrition & environmental factors, and milk is just less 'rich' overall. It's a natural cycle and nothing to worry about.

Could someone else in your household be watering the milk down? It's a 'tip' I've seen on various money saving/ scrimping sites.

It was a newly opened plastic bottle from Asda.
