Chocolate milk is one of the healthier drink options school cafeterias offer in comparison to most of the other sugar plagued beverages. However, one student’s video of the chocolate milk that came oozing out of their carton is enough to make you feel lactose intolerant.
A Reddit user uploaded a video of the carton of chocolate milk they received from Catskill High School’s cafeteria in New York. The footage shows the carton being poured onto a tray as the milk sludges out resembling pudding more than liquid.
Even as the carton is held completely upside down, the chocolate milk still glops out with a disturbing mucus-like consistency. The video was quick to start trending on Reddit, receiving over 6,000 points and the YouTube link amassing over 350,000 views in just a matter of hours.
To make matters worse, the video shows the carton afterwards, which clearly states that the chocolate milk is still well before the printed expiry date.
The Reddit post exploded with over 3,000 comments of users trying to figure out what was wrong with the chocolate milk, but also offering ideas for how the school can fix this problem.
One Reddit user, who claims to be a dairy worker, explained that this milk’s sludgy consistency is most likely the result of the carton being left out for over six hours and then put back in the refrigerator.
This less than appetizing chocolate milk video is just one of the many incidents recently where students have posted questionable food and drink items they’ve received from their school cafeterias to social media. Clearly, something has to be done, but until then, it’s probably best to start bringing a lunch to school.
