I don’t usually think of milk. I guess it’s just not something one takes the time to think of. I mean, it’s part of every shopping list I’ve ever made but I don’t actually take the time to sit down and think of dairy. That would be weird, wouldn’t it? But today I found myself doing exactly that.
You guys remember the Milk Moustache campaign of Alaska? It was launched in 2000 and every June 1st, Alaska joins the celebration of World Milk Day by getting the event attendees to take photos with their own milk moustaches.
It got everybody to sport white `staches of their own including my siblings and me. We were racing to see who got taller faster because that’s what our parents would always say to get us to drink the stuff. I didn’t need much nudging because I loved how it tasted. Sad to say, I lost the race while Maxx and Frank tower above me today.
Other memories include feeling betrayed to find out that my mom’s best friend didn’t like milk, waking up bright and early for cartoons & cereal, literally crying over spilled milk (don’t ask), and my first encounter with the spoiled kind. I can explain that last one. It was my first time living on my own and I wasn’t up to speed yet with doing my own groceries, paying the bills, etc. So it was inevitable. Don’t judge me!
Anyway, this little trip down memory lane got me thinking that I should try and make more memories that involved my favorite dairy drink. So I headed over to my ate Unna’s house to hang out with her kids.
She said that her daughter Lulu, in particular, loved milk the most. Watch the video below to see what we did that afternoon:
As you can see, she’s a very shy kid. But as soon as we drank Alaska Powdered Milk, she was all smiles. It’s good to know that it’s not only nutritious but also delicious for kids to enjoy!

What were your favorite memories that involved milk? I’d love to hear about them, too!
