Default Full fat milk

Can anyone tell us what we should be looking for if we want full fat milk in the supermarkets. We are taking a young baby with us who loves her milk.

We usually get cartons of fresh milk from the fridge at the Caprabo or SYP supermarkets without any problem. They stock just about everything you need for a baby.

If I had any complaint it would be that nappies were expensive and whenever we needed to buy them they only sold huge packs.

Hope you have a lovely time.

I'm pretty sure that the labels on the milk 'leche' are in English for some reason - so you'll have no problem in recognising it. The only thing that we've found is that Caprabo tend to run out of fresh milk on changeover days (Sats) so you may have look around. I think that the British Food Shop sell a UK make (Craven?).

If you need it the Spanish terms are:

leche entera - full-fat milk
leche semidesnatada - semi-skimmed milk

leche fresca - fresh milk

As I'm in the UK I don't know if you can get it in PP but it appears to be 'crema agria' in Spanish.

My big Spanish dictionary is at work (the pp.com office) so I googled it & found this great dictionary web site www.wordreference.com/ - I know I'm sad but this is great!

Sour cream can also be called 'nata' agria & you may find a German make in Caprabo called ROTTALER - Sauerrahm (German for sour cream!).

Even sadder...
