And dear people, if it does not come out of the nipple of a mammal*, it ain’t milk, it is some sort of juice processed with all kinds of chemicals to make it taste like milk.
(*platypus included in Mammalia)
Here is a relevant article from the NY Post:
The plant-based market’s biggest drivers, almond milk and soy milk, cost almost double at $4.29 a half-gallon (64-ounces) each, compared to $2.17 for regular dairy milk, according to a price check by FreshDirect. The price tag on oat milk is almost 2.5 times the cost of dairy milk, at $5.29 a half-gallon.
This article is from 2019, but a quick online search shows that while the prices have changed, the ratios have stated the same.
So anyone with a modicum of understanding of business should get why requesting almond, soy, or oat mik would come with an surcharge, the cost of the ingredient is higher.
But that fact is relevant to activist idiots like Cromwell.
