Topic: Parmalatt (4 msgs / 157 lines)
1) From: Terry Stockdale
Anyone else using Parmalat boxed milk to make 
their lattés?  I've been using it off and on for 
about a year.  Microfoam by Silvia, of 
course.  Latté art by Terry -- but none really great yet.
I like the slight malt flavor of the milk, which 
puts subtle twist to SM's Monkey I normally use 
as the base of the latté.   It's also great with GrapeNuts cereal.
Normally I don't use Parmalat, I use regular 
refrigerated 1% milk from Sam's Club (seems to 
have the best body).  They carry Parmalat 2%, 12 
quarts for about $13, boxed, no refrigeration 
required (makes a good milk supply for hurricane 
season).   The regular grocery store also has 
Parmalat 1% and Parmalat whole milk.

I don't drink it myself, I don't really care for milk, but Parmalat is what
we always have in the house. I use it for cappuccinos, lattes & raspberry
steamers for my wife & any visitors who want a milk drink. No negative
comments about the taste, Jean seems to like it better. Most folks just ask
about the box.
I have tasted it, it seems to have a slightly cooked taste.

I've tried it. Bleccch--even the chocolate version tastes cooked. I  
guess it's a vestige of my childhood aversion to reconstituted dry  
milk (which we used when we couldn't get to the grocery for real  
milk). I use half-and-half, or heavy cream with a splash of Soy Dream  =
for my low-carb cappas, or organic whole milk for macchiati. (The  
amount of carbs in a dollop of just the foam is negligible).  Carb  
Countdown 2% foams nicely and tastes decent, but breaks down quickly;  =
and, like skim milk, turns my coffee a disgusting grayish taupe.   
Straight soy, even Soy Dream (the newer lower-carb formula), tastes  
too grassy for me and foams too coarsely.

4) From: Angelo
I like the taste, but here in Manhattan, it's too 
expensive - $2.19 qt.  I use a touch of 
evaporated milk with my Americanos...and 
condensed milk for a bit of sweetening.
