    They discovered they could make more money by marketing it as wallpaper paste.

    Powdered milk and eggs aren't meant to be eaten straight - they are additives.


    You guys drink STP, too, don't you? This explains much about Rogue...

    I use milk for cereal, and only very rarely for cooking.

    Well, THERE's your problem!

    You can mix it 1:1 with whole milk for a decent enough taste - for something like cereal. I buy it so I can have milk on hand when I decide to bake - I probably don't use two gallons in a year.

    Powdered milk IS yukky...but with cocoa it's doable. And, as Teal pointed out, it's best for cooking/baking.

    and as an emergency supply when a disaster hits.

    We actually used to keep a box of "shelf milk" in the pantry for 'emergencies'.
