The Milkman Always Rings Twice


About a month ago, my mom discovered Oberweis Dairy, which still offers home delivery. We both thought this was super neat and also really liked that fact that all their dairy products come from Midwest farmers and their eggs are free range. Today we got our second delivery and this contained our first order of milk. You can get your milk in either traditional plastic bottles or glass. The glass bottles have a deposit of like a dollar or two and you can keep them and not get your deposit back. Instead of placing the bottles in metal racks, Oberweis provides coolers in an effort to keep the milk from spoiling. I can't tell you how cool it was to be waiting around for the "milkman" to come this morning!

Does anyone have this kind of service in their town?

I do! I do!!

I love waiting for the milkman. Is there anything better than the familiar "clinking" of those glass bottles? I think not. I have the cooler, too!

Grab a cookie, pour a glass of cold milk, and enjoy.

Cheers!

I wish!! My mom remembers the milk cart (pulled by horses). My grandparents' house and now my own house both have milk doors. How I wish there was a service that let me use it!!!!

When I was young (no comments on how long ago that was please), we had a milkman who came in and put the milk, eggs and butter away in the icebox for my Mom.
He was always so nice to all us kids and smiled as we all ran around getting ready for school.
Now that was service.
I think I will look into getting our milk delivered here...
Simple pleasures are the best!

Swell post, Emily! Now I have the song "Milkman, Keep Those Bottles Quiet" stuck in my head - lol.

When I was a child, my family got milk delivery for awhile. The bottles were glass with a plastic handle and were left in a metal cooler-like box outside the front door once or twice a week. Even then I thought it was kinda old-timey and neat ;)

Not too long ago, I discovered that there is a family farm about 10 miles away that delivers dairy products, eggs, and produce along a 45-mile section of a major state highway here in PA. Been thinking of giving it a shot. :)

we do - they deliver milk eggs and orange juice and leave it on your doorstep - they even have a traditional milk float!

How lucky you are! I wish we did. That is one of my favorite childhood memories.
