we are going to Florida in a few weeks and both my boys drink cows milk now. I've been before so know that milk over there is not the same as milk here, so which is the "whole milk"

It might be called "homo milk"! But I'm in Canada so not sure. Look for 3.25% fat anyway.

I think it's 'homo milk'. Look for 3% or 3.25% fat or whatever. They generally also have 2% and skim, and sometimes they have 1%.

I'm sure I remember in Florida, the milk being 4% 2% and 1% corresponding to whole, semi, skimmed. But I could be making that up.

It is called whole milk afaik (it's all homogenised)

It is called - Whole or Full Fat Milk, I would recommend you buy organic milk while you are here (I live in the US), it is a little bit more expensive, but tastes better and is free of Growth Hormone. Just know its not going to taste nearly as good as the milk you are used to.
