While shopping at the Meats & Cheese store in St. Jacobs recently, I purchased a glass bottle of Eby Manor Golden Guernsey Chocolate Milk as a treat for myself. I was completely unprepared for the flood of joy that overtook me upon my first sip of this smooth, rich beverage.
“Some say it tastes like a chocolate milkshake, others describe it as a liquid chocolate bar, several have likened it to melted chocolate ice cream.”
This quote from the Eby Manor web site, although accurate, cannot quite capture the rapture that their product invokes. Decanted cold from its retro style glass bottle, I am reminded of days gone by and memories of fresh milk being delivered in glass bottles door to door.
No less nostalgic is the idyllic farm where the milk is produced. The pampered herd of 60 registered milking Guernsey cows of the Eby Manor live in a clean and comfortable home, grazing fields that have been farmed for three generations.
The special qualities of the Guernsey cow breed makes their milk naturally higher in Beta-Carotene, Omega 3, calcium and A2. It’s pure and wholesome naturally.
