It's funny how things look different, a couple hours down the shore. Flowering shrubs are a couple weeks ahead of us and the dairy choices have an unfamiliar option: Cook's Dairy.
For starters, I LOVE the graphic design of their packaging. The big and bold numbers, the extra large 'S' in Skim Milk and of course their palette of colours.
Cook's Dairy is a familiar sight in the southern end of the province, but travel only a few hours up the coast and it is nowhere to be seen. This is truly a locally owned and operated company. Its roots date back to the 1940's and judging by how many places I saw it on offer, it is still going strong.
I am regretting that I didn't take more pictures of their products while I was on the French Shore, but that will have to wait for another sojourn later this summer. I should also sample some of their products...next time.
