Slowly learning...

After 8 months of living in Zürich I have finally figured out one salient fact that will improve my pastime of hot beverage drinking.

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.

Sweetend OJD...if it were actual orange juice, then it would not need to be sweetened, fyi.
