Look Who’s Afraid! Dairy Industry Launches Ad Campaign Dissing Plant-based Milks

Look Who's Afraid! Dairy Industry Launches Ad Campaign Dissing Plant-based Milks

Looks like people are finally wisening up about the nutritional value of cow’s milk (or lack thereof) and consequently switching to plant-based milks. This is now abundantly clear from the fact that the dairy industry (yes, that multi-billion dollar industry) has launched an entire ad/smear campaign attacking plant-based milks.

The whole campaign is focused on the theme that only cow’s milk is “real milk” and other milks are “not natural,” which not only illustrates how pathetic the dairy industry is, but also how gullible they think consumers are.

As Andy Bellatti points out on his blog Small Bites, the campaign describes coconut milk as “spooky” for looking so “real” when compared to cow’s milk. Hazelnut milk is supposed to be weird because it has “stuff on the  bottom.” Almond milk apparently has a “phony” color and soy milk is accused of not coming from a cow! REALLY? Thank you for enlightening us!

They’re even airing a ridiculous TV spot titled “Shake” that attacks plant-based milks.

You know what’s “spooky?” The horrific ways cows and their offspring are treated in the dairy industry. And you know what’s “not natural?” Drinking the milk of another species!

I don't even understand why they call plant-based products "milk". Milk issues from the udders and teats of mammals. Juice issues from plants. It should be called coconut juice and soy juice. As for what issues from nuts, last I heard it was "oil", so almond milk is really almond oil juice. It all sounds yucky anyway. Give me a nice tall glass of cow squeezin's any day.

JBezz, since you are bragging of being a "connoisseur", let me ask you: when are you planning to schedule your weaning ?, haven´t you realized you are not a calf, have you even noticed your baby months are long gone ?.

If this is the best they can do to diss non-dairy milk, I'm investing in soybeans.
