    Low Carb Milk.....Awsome


    HOOD, Low Carb Dairy Drinks - Carb Countdown low carb Dairy Beveregs from H.P. hood. They have Whole Milk, 2%, skim, and Chocolate 2%. They are thicker then normal milk, kind of like heavy cream or in the chocolate milk case, a milkshake, but they are really good, and are much lower in carbs then regular milk. They are avialble at Wallmarts that have a food store, and in some other supermarkets

    For people who live in the Northeast Stop & Shop has it...Great stuff

    IMO it taste's better than milk more like cream and contains more protien than milk and only 2 CArbs...

    Hood introduces Carb Countdown™, the dairy solution for those counting their carbs™. Carb Countdown is the only Atkins approved refrigerated dairy beverage that provides the wholesome, creamy nutrition of milk without all the carbohydrates. In fact, each 8-ounce serving contains 3 grams of carbohydrate — that’s 75% less carbs than whole milk, and 90% less carbs than chocolate milk. And each 8-ounce serving of Carb Countdown has up to 50% more protein than a glass of milk, with more calcium and fewer calories. The Carb Countdown line includes Homogenized, 2% Reduced Fat and Fat Free white varieties, and 2% Reduced Fat Chocolate. Carb Countdown is available in the refrigerated dairy section at retailers nationwide.

    yeah it's definitely good stuff. around here though it is priced at 3$ per half gallon, which is a mother load, and unfortunately all the atkiners buy practically ALL of them before i ever get back to the store, so i can never catch any. but as a concept i think it's pretty cool

    I love that stuff on low carb days - makes it easy to drink protein shakes with oil

    Thanks for posting that Madman, it's good stuff. I got the skim and it's slightly different than normal skim, but I'm used to it now. It's great in oatmeal too. Can't wait to try the chocolate.

    I have yet to see this stuff at a cost effective price. However, if you can afford it and you like it, then by all means get some.

    there's chocolate too huh? the regular skim is very good once you get used to the thicker richer consistency again... but man, you'd think here in wisconsin it would be easier to find!

    After reading this thread I searched some out at the Super Wal-Mart on my last trip to the groc. I got the fat free and have to say it tastes every bit as good, if not better than the 2% I usually get. And at 2 for $5, only marginally more expensive.

    picked up the nonfat carton the other day. Notice nothing different from regular skim milk... better digestion of it though. Im gonna pick up the chocolate and see how that is. Not bad nutritional content on that bad boy either. Price isnt really an issue when you think about the amount of protein in grams per serving and how much serving you get in one carton. uknow... 2 servings (2 cups) yields about 24g of protein.... 4 of these in a $3.50 carton.... not too shabby. minus the carbs (hehe)
