Dairyland is a Canadian household staple. It’s impossible to go to the grocery store and not see a full stock of Dairyland product on the shelves.
It’s almost that time of year…the time of year where you start seeing egg nog being stocked in your favorite grocery store. I love egg nog, it’s definitely my seasonal guilt pleasure. My favorite egg nog is Dairyland’s Light Egg Nog. It’s the best tasting out of all the brand’s I have tried and the only one I buy.
Another product that I refuse to buy any other brand but Dairyland is their cottage cheese. I have found that Dairyland taste’s the freshest and it’s the only brand I trust. I have noticed that other brands (that I won’t name) have a funny “tang” to the initial bite and a weird aftertaste. Not something I look for in my cottage cheese.
Naturally the most popular purchase from us (and I assume most Canadian households) is milk. We buy skim in our house, and although I don’t drink cow’s milk anymore, my husband loves Dairyland Skim Milk. Dairyland milk has been around for over 90 years. For those of you who have a lactose sensitivity, there is a milk for you. I’m also excited to let you know all know that Dairyland has recently introduced Organic milk to it’s line up. The organic milk is packaged in 100% recycled bottles and the milk is certified organic. Organic food is farmed in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible way, focusing on soil regeneration, water conservation and animal welfare.
You can’t go wrong with Dairyland’s products, but something I would like to see in the (near) future is flavored coffee cream. As much as I enjoy the brand’s out there, it’s purely chemical (one of the brand’s bottles even says “may contain milk products”, but I couldn’t find an ingredient I could pronounce). I understand it’s easy to infuse cream with a vanilla bean on it’s own but I don’t have time for that. I understand that shelf life wouldn’t be as long as the “other brands” but isn’t that a good thing? I question my coffee creamer that doesn’t expire for three months.
