Classic milk, but not at $7.99!

I read in the July 6 weekend Nation on Page 7 an advertisement headed Return Of A Classic, followed by the subheading We Listened To You And Now The Classic Is Back In A Brand New Package! – Enjoy. Turning to my daughter I quipped: “I now will buy PHD milk again.”
Instantly my thoughts went back to when Pine Hill first introduced that “fancy” milk that didn’t need to be refrigerated before opening and had a super-long shelf life.
We were told it was the same milk and there was no need for alarm; it was in keeping with new technology . . . . But the milk tasted different.
Nevertheless I went to the supermarket to get my box of Classic milk for personal taste testing and was outraged at the price $7.99 for the one-litre box . . . . I put it right back and walked out.
If Pine Hill Dairy wants to alter its packaging to stay in the Trinidad market, fine; but don’t send us the bill!
