I am very, very mildly lactose intolerant. This usually doesn't matter - I don't even think about at restaurants and such - because the food I like to eat tends to contain very little uncooked dairy. I drink soy milk instead of cow's milk, for instance - I grew up with it and so prefer it - and one glass of cow's milk is generally all right with my digestive system.

However, Meadville... has fresh milk. Whole milk. With chocolate in it. Served in glass bottles. Freshly obtained from free-range, no-antibiotics cows from a meadow right nearby. It's thick and creamy and sweet and tastes like a milkshake, if milkshakes were light and infused with sunshine. And the first time I encountered it (today) I intended to stop with one small cup, and ended up drinking 3 glasses in quick succession. And I usually don't even like cow's milk.

I've been spending the last few hours alternately cleaning up the Marketing FAD page and clutching my stomach and groaning a bit, but it was so worth it. I want more. And I think I'll go get some lactose tablets the next time I go into town.

In other news, Meadville has wonderful food.
