Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 Review and giveaway

Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 was a hit with my family. My family loves milk. Especially chocolate milk. I use milk in my shakes after coming home from the gym from my workouts. We had not ever tried organic milk. The milk was easy to find in the milk aisle. I arrived home and poured it in cups for the family to try. They all loved it and could not taste anything weird or different. There is always that misconception that something being organic might not taste good or might taste weird. After reading the nutritional facts and organic facts I was glad that my family loved it.

DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. Found
in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is
thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been
shown to help support heart health.
DHA provides a nutritional boost for children's growing minds and bodies.
Children's brains grow incredibly fast. In fact, the brain nearly quadruples

number of food sources.

intakes than non milk consumers

Chocolate Milk is an Effective Post-Exercise Recovery Beverage

post-exercise rehydration as sports drinks
·Because of the natural carb:pro ratio in flavored milks, low fat
chocolate milk is an effective post-exercise recovery beverage.

I have never tried organic milk so I would like to see if it has a different taste than regular milk.
