A recent survey says 7% of Americans believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.
The survey was from the Innovation Center of US Dairy.
In April. 1,000 adults 18+ were asked about the role milk plays in their lives and the study found 48% of respondents weren’t sure where chocolate milk came from. Seven percent thought chocolate milk only comes from brown cows.
That adds up to about 16.4 million people! (More than the population of Ohio!)
The Washington Post linked the study to past studies that consistently show many Americans have no idea where their food comes from. For example, a study in the 90s found that nearly 20% of people did not know hamburgers are made from beef! Really???
