"chocolate milk comes from brown cows"

It makes sense. But why is it so sweet? Do the cows eat sugar cane?

А земля?

Земля тоже коричневая. Да и удобрения.

I do believe that brown eggs are more nourishing.

Cemetery residents are alarmed...

Stop complaining about their work, but job and be thankful...

I just asked my 8 years old son.

Dennis:
Timmy, does chocolate milk come from white cows of from brown cows?

Timmy: None.
In order to make chocolate milk you have to get milk that comes from cows and then you need to come chocolate. And chocolate comes from plants.
Why do you ask me that?

Dennis:16 million Americans believe that chocolate milk is coming from brown cows.

Timmy:I do not know why so many people believe that.

Only 7% of Americans think that chocolate milk is coming from brown cows. There are 93% of "us" who think otherwise (not just 2 of us).

Главное в жизни не волноваться, а во всём спокойно разобраться и поставить правильный диагноз.

I think that is the most important point.

My two youngest kids (3 and 6) are strongly in the "Chocolate milk is coming from brown cows" camp.
That tricky system of concepts (milk is coming from different cows, but chocolate milk is made from chocolate and milk, therefore ...) is too hard for them to grasp.

The older kids 8 and 10 can reason about that chocolate milk pretty well (the 8 years old - more confidently than than the 10 years old though -- so the age is not the only factor).

И, главное, все умные такие, и дети у всех такие замечательные, а того не видите, что в вопросе двусмысленность. Правильный ответ "from brown cows; commercial dairy breeds are mostly brown". Так что запишите меня в те 7%, которые отвечают ровно на тот вопрос, который задан, а не занимаются выдумыванием, чего от них хотят услышать.

Then the right answer should be "from both, but mostly from brown cows".
Timmy also objected to your point of view - that even though most commercial cows are brown and milk is coming from these brown cows - the chocolate part still does not come from cows.

Better than "none".

the chocolate part still does not come from cows

If we're splitting hairs, none of the milk sold in stores comes from cows: cows don't produce pasteurized milk with added vitamins. Therefore all of us who buy milk in stores, drink "milk products", not milk itself.

Not better, if you consider that "none of the milk sold in stores comes from cows".

> drink "milk products"

... one of which is called "chocolate milk".

I called that hair-splitting.

It would be interesting how people would answer about chocolate milk if the previous question were "Does milk come from white cows of from brown cows?"

Hair-splitting is still a valid argument. Especially in such a nitpicking discussion like this one.

> It would be interesting how people would answer about chocolate milk if the previous question were "Does milk come from white cows of from brown cows?"

That would be a leading question.
Why would that experiment be interesting?

Я подозреваю, что это те юные американцы, которые верят, что Easter bunny откладывает шоколадные яйца. :)
