The weekend is almost here! The weekend is almost here!! Can you tell that I am just a bit excited about it?
Not that I really have much of anything on the agenda but you know, sleeping in tomorrow does sound pretty nice.
Before I go one any further, let me do a quick rewind so I can share last nights dinner with you.
I know it may not look pretty and the picture doesn’t do it justice but that was one knee slappin’ good meal!!! Oven baked sweet and white potato fries topped with the best pulled pork ever made.
So yummy, so yummy, so yummy in my tummy!! And yes, if you don’t have kids you probably aren’t singing that to the tune of Yo Gabba Gabba who I actually find VERY annoying. So if you haven’t heard the song, be very glad!!
Magic Milk Straws
A few weeks ago I was contacted by the people at Milk 4 Education to see if I would be interested in receiving and reviewing some Got Milk? Magic Milk Straws. Uh…..I have two milk drinking(chocolate milk that is) kids so I was more than happy to accept that request.
I actually knew beforehand that my kids would love these because I had bought a couple of the flavors on my own at the grocery store. The flavors I bought were a great success at our house so I was excited to try them in other flavors as well.
You may be asking, “What are Magic Milk Straws”?
Basically, they are straws filled with tiny flavored “beads” that you use to sip your milk of choice. Since they are lactose free you can even use them in non-dairy milk like, almond, rice or soy.
They come in a variety of flavors and all of them are gluten free, low sugar, all natural and have no preservatives. Plus, they are mighty tasty if I do say so myself. I am not a lover of regular milk at all but even I was able to
gag gulp down a few sips of my kids milk and I promise, they made it taste 100% better!!
The package I received had six different flavors in them:
- Wild Berry
- Orange Cream
- Vanilla Milkshake
- Strawberry Banana
What I like best about these is that I have been able to pawn them off as “dessert”. That’s right, when my kids ask for an after dinner treat, I tell them they can have some “Magic Milk” and they are all for it. Nutritious and delicious!! Plus they are soooo simple to use. No dirty spoons or spilling the chocolate powder all over the place.
As long as my kids continue to use these to drink their milk, I will find a place for them in our pantry!!
Got Milk? I do…..and I couldn’t be happier to see my kids gulping it down. You know what they say….it does a body good (even if I am not putting it in mine ;-).)

Are you a milk drinker? Obviously, I am not a fan of regular milk but I love me some almond milk!
Do you prefer your milk plain or flavored?
Have you ever tried the Magic Milk Straws? Favorite flavor?
