No other form of milk can do it — Carnation’s the secret, that’s all there is to it! It’s twice the milk, with twice the cream — and it whips even higher than cream itself! Makes your milk recipes creamier, too, because it’s richer than sweet, whole milk, even when you add an equal amount of water.
