When I was a little girl, we had milk delivered every day by a milkman. I thought this was falling out of fashion these days but when I was given an opportunity to try out milk&more for a month, I jumped at the chance. Would it still be the same as when I was little? Could the milkman still meet the needs of a family with the busy lives that we lead now?
To place your order, you need to go online and choose the products that you would like, whether on a one-off or a regular occurrence.You can choose the days of the week that you have deliveries (any day except Sunday) and go from there. milk&more sell a lot more than just milk. You can choose from everything milk, cheese, bakery, a variety of drinks and home/garden items. I was amazed! For us to begin with, I chose the traditional glass bottles of whole milk with 2 pints being delivered three times a week. It was lovely having proper milk in proper bottles again and the creamy bit on my favourite bit. What I loved most though was in the welcome pack, came a label to hang on the used bottles so you could ask for a pint or two extra without needing to go online.
The milkman came in all weathers and even managed to deliver to us despite 8-10 inches of snow and very bad roads. He usually delivered to us around 8 am but on that day, turned up at 2 pm. I was surprised he even made it through at all, to be honest. For the second half of our month trial, I swapped our milk to 4 pints of Country Life whole milk 3 times a week which worked out better for us as a family. Thomas and Daniel still love their milk so we regularly get through 8-10 pints a week. It was lovely having the milk delivered and not having to worry about it, however, there was only one negative that I could see and that is the cost. The milk in traditional pint glass bottles was approximately £4.50 a week and the 12 pints of Country Life milk was £7.50 a week delivered. We usually buy two of 6 pints of whole milk from the supermarket which cost approximately £3.20 a week so I am not entirely sure I can justify the cost of having the milk delivered long term. I did enjoy doing the trial though and if our milk intake changes as the boys get older, I would certainly consider having milk deliveries again. I did not get the chance to try the other products which they can deliver unfortunately so if you have any experience with them, then I would love to hear it in the comments below.
