It is this:
Milch Drink is actually reduced-fat milk. My initial shopping trips were spent looking for 'fettarme Milch' that I never found, so I stupidly assumed that one could only buy whole milk in CH. Haha, the joke is on me. I was incorrectly comparing how we in the states use the word 'drink' in conjunction with beverages.
For example, a 'juice drink' back home could contain very little actual juice and a ton of high-fructose corn syrup. Juice it ain't, so I never purchased any. 'Milch Drink', I incorrectly thought, must be as icky as our 'juice drink', so I gave it a wide berth. Were it not for my finally asking a Swiss acquaintance whether one could find reduced-fat milk here, then I probably never would have realised that there is a wee selection to be had when purchasing milk products in CH.
