Hood Calorie Countdown Milk... Mmm!


#1

I can't believe how great the Hood Calorie Countdown milk tastes! Maybe I'm crazy but it tastes better/creamier than regular 2% milk. It doesn't have that sorta sweet after taste, obviously from reducing the carbs. Only 24 grams of carbs in a whole half gallon. Only 40 if its Chocolate.

I work midnights and I'm in a car most of the time. Tonight I'm gonna drink a half gallon in between meals. I got on sale at Kroger for 3 bucks a half gallon. Seems like a nice, cheap supplement.

I use Hoods Calorie Countdown, too. I use it to mix with my protein shakes and it saves quite a few calories per day. I also like it straight up. Great product!


#3

Do they sell it in Canada?


#4

When i started drinking milk again a few years ago, its the one I went with. Its pretty good.

p.s. I don’t think its available up north.

edit: what happened to my “level” rating? “0” sheesh, the gratitude

This milk is awesome. I actually like the chocolate version better than traditional chocolate milk.

x2. . . . People look at me funny when I purchase it at work (I work at a grocery store). They always give me shit buying it, and I tell them that it tastes AWESOME!

I’m drinking about a half gallon everyday. It just tastes so damn good. I’m trying to gain weight but need low carb as those little carb thingys go right to my gut. I basically drink this milk all day long like some people drink soda or tea. Don’t need the lactate pills anymore either. I think I’m going to start drinking it while I work out.

I’ve had Hood’s calorie countdown chocolate milk. It was amazing. However, I’m a huge fan of Velda Farms’ chocolate milk too, so it’s a real tough call for me.


#9

Read this thread, few days later go into Kroger and forget what I’m looking for.

Looking right at it and couldn’t find it today!!! Gonna go back and get it tomorrow.

Anyway, how “clean” is this (chocolate) and how much protein is in each serving?

Used to drink a quart of this stuff after every workout along with a protein bar. It’s fantastic.

I don’t know if the Hood brand is sold in Canada but when I was in Niagra Falls, Canada in February I went to a grocery store that had something very similar (same type of nutrient ratios). I can’t remember the brand but it wasn’t Hood.

#17

#18

#19

I always look for it every time i good get food and never have any luck. Krogers gives me no love…
