16.4 Million Americans Believe Chocolate Milk Comes From Brown Cows

by 4 months ago

Did your grandpa tell you that brown cows make chocolate milk when you were 6-years-old? Decades later, hopefully, you received basic knowledge about science and physiology and realized that your pop-pop is full of shit. Surely you debunked grandpa’s malarkey about brown cows producing chocolate milk. However, there are a shit-ton amount of people who still think that brown cows make chocolate milk. For fuck’s sake.

According to a survey put together by the National Dairy Council found that a worrying amount of Americans believe that brown cows make chocolate milk. And they’re not 6-year-old, these are actual adults. The study by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy of more than 1,000 Americans in April of this year found that seven percent of adult Americans believe that chocolate milk pours out of the udders of brown cows. That comes out to 16.4 million people believe that black and white cows produce regular milk and brown cows produce delicious chocolate milk. That’s more than the populations of 46 of the 50 states in the US of A. This is astoundingly sad that people are not aware that chocolate syrup or cocoa powder is used to make chocolate milk and it isn’t a direct product of nature.

To make delectable cocoa matters worse, 48 percent of respondents said that they aren’t sure where chocolate milk comes from. The grocery store? The survey also discovered that 29 percent of sneaky parents use their children as an excuse to buy glorious chocolate milk.

Just a friendly piece of advice, the yellow liquid coming from cows is not banana milk.
