Lactose-intolerant chocolate milk lovers who missed out on the Lewis Road Creamery chocolate milk frenzy now have the opportunity to enjoy the taste sensation as well.
It's been seven years since Lewis Road launched its famous chocolate milk with Whittaker’s, leading to queues at supermarkets across the country, security guards defending the dairy aisle and a roaring black market trade.
However, one group – the lactose-intolerant – has, for all this time, missed out. Until now.
Lewis Road Creamery has released Lactose-Free Fresh Chocolate Milk. The chocolate milk is made with the same original recipe combining Lewis Road Creamery’s permeate free white milk and Whittaker’s 5 Rolled Refined Creamy Milk Chocolate. Just without the lactose.
The removal of the lactose from the milk is achieved by the addition of the lactase enzyme that breaks down the lactose without impacting the delicious flavour that helped make the original such a sell-out success.
Lewis Road Creamery’s Lynette Maan, said the company received many requests from its followers to expand its lactose-free range, with chocolate milk number one on the wish list.
“A growing number of lactose-free consumers are entertaining other alternatives as a way to seek out gut comfort,” said Maan.
“So, we are delighted to answer the call and provide an indulgent chocolate milk treat that also delivers on essential natural nutrients. We believe everyone deserves their chocolate milk moment.
“Last year we launched our Lactose-Free Jersey Milk which has been received incredibly well” she added.
Lewis Road Creamery Lactose-Free Chocolate Milk comes in 300ml recycled PET (rPET) bottles which are also recyclable again. RRP $4.49.
