When I was a kid, I drank chocolate milk all the time. As I grew up, this never changed. I still love chocolate milk just as much as I did then. Throughout my pregnancies when the doctor pushed me to drink more milk this was the main way that I got my daily intake of milk. Chocolate milk, like regular milk has calcium, protein, vitamin D and other nutrients that your body needs to remain healthy and strong. Chocolate milk comes in low fat versions as well so those who are worried about their weight can still indulge in a glass of chocolate milk every now and then as well. I drink it several times a week, sometimes every day. I usually buy the lower fat versions because I am trying to watch my weight, but now and then I drink the full fat flavors as well. I don't see much difference, but my son picks up the full fat one when he does the shopping. I love to drink a glass of chocolate milk to wash down my peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I enjoy a nice cold glass of chocolate milk during the summer to quench my thirst when nothing else will. It's great to sit down with while watching a movie or reading a book. I like to drink a glass before bedtime to help me relax. It's great anytime. Do you like to drink chocolate milk? How often do you drink it? What is your favorite time to drink it?

I drink a lot less of it in the summer too. It seems to hit my stomach a lot harder, so I have to drink it a lot slower.

I do like chocolate milk. In fact for the longest time that was the only way I would drink milk. I have finally developed a taste for the white stuff. Actually I keep some low fat chocolate milk on hand, and when I get that mid evening after dinner craving for something chocolate or sweet, I pour a glass of that. I figure it keeps me from raiding the cupboards for a bunch of junk, so it is a healthy alternative for me. :)

I feel that way too. A little chocolate milk goes a long way. It quite often keeps me from a big binge of junk food I would be eating instead. It's great that something healthy actually tastes good.

I will only drink chocolate milk. I won't drink plain milk unless I add chocolate syrup to it. I try to drink it whenever I purchase it.

I know that the chocolate makes it taste much better. Thanks for your response.

Do you drink it often? Do you find yourself drinking it more at a particular time of day, or just whenever you get the urge?

Yes I like chocolate milk. I usually drink in the morning with my breakfast. I don't drink it daily though. I also like the milk by itself.

I don't drink a large amount of it daily, but if it's around I will surely have a small glass of it. I think it's a lot better for you than a lot of the sugary drinks out there so if I need a sweet treat, it might as well be a healthy one.

I am a animal when it comes to chocolate milk. I love this stuff. So much that if I buy an entire gallon, it would be gone in 30 minutes. But I have always drunk a lot of milk. As a kid, I could easily drink a half-gallon by myself. They knew I was drinking milk because I was outgrowing other kids. The chocolate milk I drink now is 2 percent (the brand that I like only comes in two percent). I would practically drink it whenever possible. My only problem is that it is an expensive addiction to have although it is 2.39 a gallon, but I can go through two of these things a day. Especially since I lift weights, and other heavy lifting. I was told that this is a good muscle recovery drink after working out, and does it feel good going down the stomach after working out because I am literally craving it. I have been known to drink a gallon in five minutes after working out. My family wish I was lactose intolerant because they have never seen a person drink so much milk. They didn't realize that I am a growing horse.

I used to love to drink it but I developed some issued with milk. I can eat a pound of cheese, no problem. I can down 10 containers of yogurt, no problem. I can even eat ice cream but let me drink more than 6 ounces of milk and I am in the bathroom the rest of the day. When I get a craving for it I usually make some hot cocoa then let it cool off; if I bought a half gallon of chocolate milk I'd be a pig and drink the whole thing.
