Default Milk .....fresh or UHT etc??.

Cravendale milk cartons available in some shops last as usual in my experience - it's just a case of finding a stockist! Good luck!

The fresh milk from Mercadona and Lidl both last until the date on the bottle usually at least a week. I have never had any go off.

Just out of interest while on the subject of milk, what would be the closest in taste to UK semi-skimmed in most people's opinion?

Fresh milk in plastic bottles available at Hyper and the Eroski on the roundabout. Keeps much better than the carton milk of fresh milk

I can no longer tell the difference, and this has been the case for a very long time now. Mallorcan milk (certainly in the locally-produced cartons) always seems to be just like it is "at home".

Its odd, because there are certainly quite some variances as you travel around the world.

Not sure if we are going off-topic now though...

I have moved the above posts to this new thread because the original thread here, http://www.forum.puertopollensa.com/...nsa-twins.html was about baby products .,
