Woolworths milk compared with raw cold press
Even though cheap it wasn't worth the price. It just tastes so watery or like you're standing at the milk shed and breathing cow smells. Hard to describe. Lucky we used it quickly on other things like smoothies etc. So bought $5 milk cold pressed 750ml and that was absolutely divinely different you can just drink that milk alone. In fact it feels a waste to even put it in tea.
woolworths milk with cream on top? the cream has gone.
I've been using woolworths milk with the cream on top since it arrived in store.
I don't mind paying extra money for milk that actually tastes like milk,
though over late May 2016 until current June 10 2016 The cream on top has gone .
what's going on woolworths.
I'm buying my own house cow
Once again,I have six litres of sour milk in my fridge to get through. I'm not sure if this problem is exclusive to woollies either,I've experienced this problem with all brands of milk. I have a friend who works in the dairy industry who assures me that milk souring is caused by milk left without refrigeration after it has left the factory. I have especially had trouble with milk from service stations and milk bars. How often have you seen milk left outside your milk bar by the dairy before they have opened for trading? Or milk crates stacked...up outside the fridge,patiently waiting for some refrigeration in your local 7 11. Over the years I have complained probably only 25%of the time I've been ripped off and have been told so many different stories from suppliers about the souring phenomenon,they mostly suggest my fridge is crook,Paul's once sent me out a fridge thermometer!! Milk is my favourite food and I drink loads of it,minimum of 2lts per day,3lts a day by the time the kids get on it. I have worked on a dairy myself and have not once ever experienced sour milk. The most curdling thing about all of this is I don't live in suburbia and often buy 12++litres at a time and returning it is just not possible. Not joking about house cow either!!!
Until recently I had trouble with the in date milk being off when opened. For the last few months this milk now defies the use by date and doesn't sour, even when a carton is over a month past date! I shudder to think what might be causing this unaturally long life. Are there unlisted preservatives in Select milk or is it now UHT?
Ruined my Coffee
For the past few times that I have purchased Woolworths brand milk, it has had a "funny" taste. It tastes and smells like it is off - even though it is not off. Not very nice at all. It does not taste right at all. I have gone back to buying Coles milk. I have always bought Woolworths milk so I am disappointed to say the least. I just don't want to risk ruining my coffee anymore. After all, teachers needs their coffee to get through the day :)
Ok for the budget conscious
We buy woolies milk 2L. We go through it a lot maybe within 3 days it has gone. I admit the taste is not as good as brand milk and it does taste watered down. I always buy brand milk when it is on special (reaching it's expiry date) you can get it for as low as $1.70 for 2L in the quick sale section!
Milk goes bad before expiry date
I used to buy this every week 3L, love the price and the quality used to be good. However since the last 6 months woolworths fresh milk doesn't last in the fridge longer than 3-4 days! In fact In just 2 days you start smelling that “cow” smell in the milk and then a day or two later it just goes bad even though expiry date is a week away.
It says Victorian milk however I have a feel in that something changed, they are used milk that is not fresh or repackaging old milk as new. I'd love to see an investigation launched.
And there is nothi...ng wrong with my fridge, I switched to A2 milk, though expensive it lasts more than a week in a well cooled fridge even beyond the expiry date just like the way fresh milk usually does. Very disappointed in woolies milk, I now have to pay double for other brands but at least I don't get drinking milk or having to spill down half the bottle down the sink.
Lack of seal = awful milk and big mess
Woolworths permeate free full cream should be called "Seal free leaks everywhere and tastes awful after the 30 minute drive home" . How they can sell milk in a (3li) container that doesn't seal (even before you break the plastic ring) really poses health questions? I live approx an hour drive from Albany WA and bought 6 x 3 litre containers. In the back of the car, they were not fully upright amonst the bags and every one of them leaked into the boot of the car. a week later we still can't use the car because the smell after a 40 degree day is...beyond description. We called Woolies in Albany and they were exceptionally rude and suggested that it would be very silly to lie milk down. Just maybe it is very silly to produce containers that do not seal?? especially for a product as critical as milk. Not only did I waste $30 of milk, but had to make the hour and a two our round trip back to town to replace the milk.. ] only available brand, leaks before opening, tastes awful, no ownership or acceptance of the problem by Woolworths
Goes off very quickly
Like the reviewers below I have had the same problem with Woolworths milk... It doesn't last very long at all. It will go off usually 2 - 3 days before the use by date whereas most other milk brands will last up until, or even after the use by date. Not really sure what Woolworths is playing at here but I don't particularly like wasting milk, or drinking milk that doesn't exactly taste as fresh as it should.
I have had this happen about 4 times in a row with the 1 litre, 2 litre and skim, I wont buy their milk anymore, I now buy Foodland brand and they don't seem to have the same problem... (nor any other brand for that matter).
Don't buy it.
It is cheap
Goes off far too quickly
Woolworths brand full cream milk
I also have found the last 4 (3L) milks I have purchased from Woolworths (Woolworths brand) went off before the useby date. Two of them were first time used. How are Woolworths storing their milk?
Pretty poor for the fresh food people. A total waste of money.
I have also found one of them leaked when laid down prior to the cap being opened.
Given they are going off early, besides the way Woolworths store it, it may also have something to do with their caps not sealing properly.
There can be no savings when they go off, on or before the useby date.
Just not up to standard.
Having young children we are frequent purchasers of milk. I find that the Woolworths brand milk often goes off before the use by date and I pour an awful lot of it down the sink. It is inexpensive which is great but on occasion the only milk on the shelf is due to expire within a few days which is less than ideal. I've had my fridge serviced of late and it isn't the issue as other products are fine.
Doesn't seem to last.
