I’m 62. We always had milk from the grocery store in cartons. Mom remembers this. She’s 93. She likes those bottles from Whole Foods. Susan Robinson Donald Cross depends on geography. We lived on a farm in MO. We were country people & used grocery stores. Makes more sense for the city… routes not being too spread out. Yup !! remember working as a Low battery need Dr Pepper Est.1885 Shirt delivering milk with Toby Hauge Noris Zizer dairy. In Madison middle Sixties. Milk was changing from glass bottles to the paper cartons.

Half gallon containers was the biggest size. Many people with large families purchased it in 5 gallon cans and had dispensers in their homes. The schools got their milk in pint size glass bottles, but that was transferred to the small pint size paper boxes. Oh the good old days. Milk tasted better back then too. When I was in early elementary school we had “the cow”. It was a refrigerated dispenser that we put our cone-shaped paper cups under and lifted the big handle. We had a Low battery need Dr Pepper Est.1885 Shirt break after phys-ed every morning and afternoon.

Everyone was required to takemilk whether you wanted it or not, but we could drink as much as we wanted. I think that was a Low battery need Dr Pepper Est.1885 Shirt law in support of the dairy association. At noon we could also have chocolate milk. When I was in 4th grade all milk was in the 1/2 pint cartons and the chocolate milk disappeared. Me and my siblings went to St. Mike’s in Madison. It was the same there as you had. Only at lunch the milk came in glass I think they were pint bottles, white only. Then the glass bottles were phased out and 1/2 pint cartons took over.
