Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 Review

I did a giveaway awhile back on the Horizon Organic lowfat Chocolate Milk with DHA Omega-3 but sadly never could do the review due not not in any location near me. So of course I still had my coupons which I kept in my purse just in case I cam across it. To tell you the truth I almost forgot about it cause due to living in a small town I just assumed we would never get it, and chalked it up as a loss. So you can see I was really happy and surprised when I went shopping this month yesterday to be exact and there it was sitting on the shelf waiting for Last month they had all the Horizon brand but chocolate and the month before that none at all so I was impressed they went from none to all the Horizon products now. Anyways I grabbed two of the half gallons I had coupons for, bought them brought them home put in the fridge to get nice and cold. Then me and my husband both poured us a glass and said bottoms up because we still had in our mines its healthy its probably nasty. Oh My God.... this doesn't taste healthy it taste like chocolate drink you know stuff like yoohoo or nesquik just wow it blew me away. I loved it and so did my husband, its good for us and good to us ha ha. Anyways from now on this is on our list to get at least one or two half gallons to get for a month. Oh by the way it taste awesome with cereal too I tried mine on golden grahams. I'm thankful for a chance to review this cause sadly I have seen the organic stuff in the store 1,000 times maybe not Horizon but still organic and I would have never touched it, or wasted money to see if I even liked it, and now I'm glad I tried it because now its part of our family shopping. By the way it doesn't have any kind of after taste and its rich and smooth and leaves no film on teeth or glasses.
