Over the Moon

Check out the nutritional facts on this milk.  Healthier all the way around and the fat savings is incredible! I've been buying this milk for about six weeks now.  The first time I tried it, the store had a little stand with a lady serving up samples.
They place her right across from the wine isle so it was no wonder people were disappointed when they discovered she was only offering samples of milk.
Feeling for the Gal, I tried a sample of the 1% fat milk.  
It was YUM!  It tasted a little smoother than the 2% milk I generally buy.
The true test would be Farmer, Jr. 
Can you believe that he dislikes whole milk?  If a restaurant serves it up to him or a friend's parent within their home, he won't drink it.  He can taste and feel the difference and he doesn't like whole milk.
Considering that Over the Moon has a silky, somewhat thicker taste and texture compared to 2% milk -- I wasn't sure how it would go over with him.  It was a BIG HIT!
Now, I will say that it only comes in half gallon cartons currently.  And, it is a bit pricier.  But, when I purchased this product to try at home it had a 55 cent instant coupon attached to it.  I also asked the sample Gal if she had any coupons.  She handed me a $1.00 coupon which I used at the register with the instant coupon as well.  Wal-mart is so good that way! ;-)
It also comes in fat free milk and chocolate.  So, you can mix it up if you have a preference.  
Considering the value of the nutrition, I think my kids are worth the extra 25-50 cents per half gallon of this milk.  We all know, I'll make up for it in savings elsewhere.  And, as long as they are offering a coupon online -- I will continue to stock my fridge with "Over the Moon" milk.
Click here for the $1.00 off coupon!    That's $1.00 off one half gallon.  That means if you print it twice, you are saving $2.00 for a gallon of milk.
You're Welcome! ;-)
[Editor's Note:  I do not receive payment for these reviews.  Nor have I received a free sample.  This review is based on my own personal findings and is strictly my own opinion.]

Thanks for the coupon, These days they are greatly needed. ;)
I've seen this one but never tried it. I'm going to now especially since I have a coupon now. I don't like whole milk either and I've passed that on to my son. Thank goodness for vitamins and yogurt. lol!

This is a new company to me but it sounds like a great product. I grew up on hormone-free skim milk from a local dairy. I prefer to never drink skim milk, if I can avoid it. I can taste/feel the difference between 1%, 2%, and whole milk (and of course, skim milk!) so I understand Farmer, Jr. having an opinion on his beverage. Now that the kids are older here, we all consume the same stuff (1%) at the rate of 6 gallons per week.

Great job on your product review! And your tweet announcing it was perfect!

Well Cow Pies! When I clicked the link it had the nerve to tell me,

"SORRY! State regulations prohibit us from running this coupon in your state. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Humpth! Well keep your dang coupon Over the Moon!!

BB Mom! I AM so commenting to the website... Because, you live in MY state! It must be a glitch, which I would be sure they would want to know about.

Maybe it's leftover from the hurricane last summer and they've rerouted the servers or something.

Hit the website directly and see if you can get the coupon. Hmftp! It's a great product and they wouldn't want to NOT promote themselves.
