TruMoo Chocolate Ice Cream
Momma Told Me: Drink your milk so you'll grow big and strong!

There were two uses for milk in my childhood; cereal and Pop's large steins of freshly frothed chocolate milk. Sometime when I was too young to recall, or perhaps the entire length of my family's history, we made the switch to 1% milk. I recall, in school, they'd serve reduced fat milk in cartons, that was sometimes 2-3% milkfat, and I'd curl my lip up in distaste. It was not the white watery liquid I'd come to know and call milk. Today, with lactose intolerant Jay, I rarely get to indulge in 'real' dairy products, and certainly not chocolate milk; there's simply too much sugar to consume it in drink form. (If I'm gonna 'cheat,' it's gonna be with a candy bar or something that takes more than a gulp to consume.)  So, when BzzAgent presented me with a mission to try TruMoo, I was intrigued.
TruMoo Chocolate Milk
I'd seen TruMoo in our grocer's cold case before, right alongside the dairy alternatives and flavored milk varieties. In all honesty, I'd never stopped to pick it up and see what all the fuss was about, I wrote it off as just another chocolate milk. What I now know changes things. Free of high fructose corn syrup, and with 35% less sugar (18g vs 28g/serving) than the leading pre-made chocolate milk brand, TruMoo Chocolate is Lowfat (1% milkfat) and 150 calories or less per serving. In fact, studies show that kids who drink flavored milk, such as TruMoo, get more calcium and key ingredients than non milk drinkers, and naturally consume less nutrient poor sodas and fruit drinks than those who do not. That's great news for parents and health conscious chocolate lovers, but how does it taste?

Just in time for the spooky season, TruMoo has updated their packaging with spooky attire, and released a limited edition Orange (colored) Vanilla milk to compliment their classic Chocolate. Sadly, the new packaging,and flavors, has not hit my area yet, but I was happy to experience classic TruMoo for the first time. My initial reaction? This is delicious! TruMoo chocolate has a light malty flavor that is more cocoa than over-sweetened chocolate, and drinks smooth without lingering aftertastes. Better yet, I don't feel the need to drink a glass of water after my glass of TruMoo, because it's not too sweet. I instantly knew this would transition perfectly into a simple Malty Chocolate Ice Cream recipe, and decided to kick it up a notch with Orange and Yellow Reese's Pieces and Marshmallow Chunks. For garnish I used Pumpkin PEEPS and Oreos with Twizzler Pull N' Peel spider 'legs'.

TruMoo Ice Cream
Not only was this a ridiculously simple, and fail proof ice cream recipe, but I was able to cut out the additional sugars in a traditional ice cream recipe and add the mix-ins. My Rocky Road Hallow's Eve Ice Cream was a huge hit, and so was the TruMoo, I cannot wait to find the Orange Vanilla on a shelf near me. In the mean time I'll be collecting the caps from specially marked packages to enter the TruMoo and Goosebumps exclusive sweepstakes for a shot at a family vacation to Fox Studios, Hollywood! Customers will also enjoy an exclusive $2/Goosebumps DVD coupon with special code entry. Want to know more?
