Does chocolate milk exist? Did it ever?

I’ve been training hard for quidditch this autumn and periodically after practice, I crave chocolate milk. Naturally, I went looking for some. I’ve been to a number of grocery stores now, but I haven’t found any chocolate milk at all. I’ve found “chocolate dairy beverage,” but nothing that’s actually called “chocolate milk.”

This makes me wonder if there is such a thing as “chocolate milk” anymore. I know there’s strict regulations (suspiciously) on what things can be labelled “milk.” For all I know, it might be the case that anything with enough chocolate in it to be called “chocolate milk” would have too much chocolate in it to be called “milk” at all.

Now here’s where it gets weird. I can’t actually remember if chocolate milk was labelled “chocolate milk” in my childhood. It might have been “chocolate dairy beverage” back then, too, but I just can’t remember.

Is there such a thing as chocolate milk, and was there ever such a thing as chocolate milk?

  1. Mine comes in a carton that is partly brown (avec a brown cow)…No idea what it is called however

  2. Oh good, I’m not crazy!

    Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve seen any Neilson products in Qu├ębec. Maybe they don’t sell it here.
