Semi-Skimmed Milk

Watery cow **** for girls.

It's all they had left in the shop and it's rank.


If I wanted watery milk, I'd buy normal milk and then add water.

I don't think semi skimmed milk is rant worthy... its pretty much the only milk ive ever had. Never really had the full fat stuff.


Fully skimmed milk is watery tho

Definitely a worthy rant

As someone brought up on pints of milk, I can remember fighting with my sister about who would get the "top of the milk" and so I cannot stand the impoverished inferior semi skimmed "product".

And as for the watery opaque shyte that is fully skimmed milk, do they get it from anaemic cows?

There's milk more skimmed/watery than semi?


Is it homoeopathic milk?

In tea Semi skimmed milk is perfect for me as I hate creamy tea.

On its own or on cereals the full fat is better. Jersey milk is nice as well.

Fully skimmed milk is like chalky water.

It's all down to fat

My brother in law is a dairy farmer. Milk from his cows is typically 6.5% fat and taken straight from the tank is unlike almost all milk you can buy. IIRC full fat milk is around 3.5%, semi-skimmed 1% and skimmed 0.1%. Also it's nearly all homogenised so no cream on the top

The lack of milk top these days is a travesty.

I can remember making butter out of the cream from a couple of pints as an experiment for school.

Me too. They couldn't do it now. Having butter in a school would lose the school its healthy school badge and impact on its OFSTED inspection results.

The reply you get from the health freaks brigade is that skimmed and semi skimmed is better for you.

I, along with many more people, dont drink that much full fat milk to send me on the road to unhealthyville.

In my tea, coffee and on my cereals. Done.

Weirdly, I used to be of the same opinion.

But last night, at work, I had to resort to using full fat in my coffee (Lidls finest Guatemalan fresh ground ) and the taste was awful.

I don't know if its just a case of being used to semi-skimmed, but even my kids don't like full-fat, which surprises me because I loved it when I was a nipper

It's all a load of Crap really. Since moving to full fat milk from Semi Skimmed I have noticed my teeth and nails are much stronger, significantly so. Would never go back to the green topped stuff now.

I've only ever used full fat - drinks loads of it so, as I am 63, I expect to die very soon (all comments acceptable).

I can take semi skimmed in tea and coffee served up by friends - it doesn't seem much different tbh - but it is insipid to drink on it's own.

I've got used to fully skimmed in tea but can take semi in a brew. Full cream tastes too much in tea but OK in coffee. Oddly though, I've started enjoying better (non-instant) coffee black. They say there's no going back. Not sure it's about coffee mind.

Identical for me too.

Cup of Tea? Must be semi-skimmed. Full fat makes it taste too fatty.
Cereal/Glass of milk? Got to be Full fat.

Only exception is Starbucks/Costa where I never ask for "skinny"... (a) because I don't want to sound like a kahnt, and (b) it tastes like dishwater with semi/skimmed.
