You’ve probably heard the old joke that chocolate milk comes from brown cows.
In the minds of some people, that idea is all too real.
Just to avoid any confusion right off the bat ― chocolate milk is just regular milk that has been mixed with chocolate syrup or cocoa powder.
But a survey conducted by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy found that 7 percent of American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, spokeswoman Lisa McComb confirmed to HuffPost.
One problem ― it’s tough to gauge the survey’s reliability. It’s possible, for instance, that some people were simply trying to be funny while answering the question.
McComb told HuffPost the survey was conducted by market researching group Edelman Intelligence and polled 1,000 people.
The center, though, was unable to provide a full copy of the survey. And when asked about the survey’s methodology, McComb only said it was “conducted online.”
In any case, we hope coverage of this survey helps clear things up for some people. And we’re still left with one burning question ― where do these people think strawberry milk comes from?
