Resetting the taste

Two weeks ago we held an interesting taste test of our carabao’s milk to offer families especially children better and healthier option in milk. A number of our subscribers signed up to curiosity.  As we wait excitedly for feedback we gave my 2 nephews a glass each to find out what they think about it. When they gave us a thumbs up we reckon that the purity of the milk is simply what makes it sooo good!

Strangely parents seem to like it more than the children in the beginning which is great because that means they would be able to direct their children’s taste buds to our offer of real and healthier milk vs supermarket milk that are laden of hormones, antibiotics and sugar that their children got used to.

Kids as young as 4 can be quite discerning and intuitive with new flavours. About a third didn’t like the taste as they are looking for a sweeter version and the rest thought that it’s creamier, richer and purer.

A lot of our subscribers asked if the rich and creamy texture might be too fattening for them but hold on carabao’s milk has 58% more calcium, 40% more protein, 43% less cholesterol and 2x more energy vs regular milk which is full of artificial flavour, chemicals and sugar that makes you obese.
