I’m used to being unable to find ‘normal’ milk when I’m away. I’m so used to just picking up 6 pint containers of semi-skimmed at any old supermarket that it was a bit of a shock to my system to be unable to find any. 


OK there’s plenty of UHT milk in the aisles - don’t they know how lovely proper milk actually is? Should I have gone elsewhere, a laiterie for example?

anyhow, needs must, and so I picked up a couple of bottles of demi-ecreme to be going on with. no doubt I can find some good stuff soon.

and couldn‘t

next supermarket I loaded  up with a half dozen bottles as it can be stored out in the open. I’ll find some proper stuff soon for my muesli and cups of tea.

and couldn't. 


And so it went, I couldn’t find any real milk, just loads of UHT.

I've started to like it. I’ve tried the full fat version as well, it’s rather nice too. Nice and easy to buy and store in a cupboard, no worrying about running out and so the milk powder can be scat away, it’s out of date anyway. 


I’ll try not to say I don’t like something before trying it in future 🤐

We have been using UHT for years whilst away and don't mind it at all, usually on cereal, in tea and coffee. Although you can find fresh milk you have to look hard for it.

Been using uht milk for about 15 years. Meant I didn’t have to keep popping into the shops to get fresh. Skimmed uht is creamier than fresh skimmed.

The fresh milk lasts for a couple of weeks these days, at home I buy a box of 12 keep 6 in the fridge and 6 in the freezer and I'm never without milk. The long life is ok for coffee, custard, rice pudding etc. but not in tea for me.
