Thanks arrived safely and on time.
The product is excellent, i used to purchase these in boxes of 20, at the supermarket, so when i visited friends or went to meetings, as with my decaff coffee i would pose no problem with my milk request. Fine, cannot find the product in any supermarket at the current time so decided to try my good friend amazon. Placed order, paid and goods delivered, the big problem the best before date of 17 jun 12. How on earth am i supposed to manage as an individual to use plus 200 milk sticks by then. So to my cost i am giving them away and if the product is no longer available in the small box in supermarkets and the use by date is so close to purchase date, it will be more economical for me to purchase a small container of milk and ‘ditch’ the rest because of the difficulty in transporting home. So i was disappointed with my purchase.In a roundabout way, sadly having found what i was looking for the use by date let the whole scene down.
Useful milk portions that i can use at work without a refrigerator. . Have been using these milk longlife sticks for sometime at work where i don’t have access to a refrigerator and they are brilliant. My only quibble by giving them 4 starts instead of 5 is that sometimes the milk doesn’t last all the way until the sell by date and that you need at least two portions to whiten a tea or about three of them to lighten coffee, although that depends on taste. However, overall i thoroughly recommend. Here are the specifications for the Dairystix UHT Semi-skimmed Milk Longlife Sticks Easy Tear and Pour Ref A03659 [Pack 200]:

Easy to use but can be messy. This product is something i often order for my husband who’s a trucker. It is fresh milk, perfect for his daily cups of tea. The container are easy to rip open although this can be messy at times if you’re not careful. This last order was ordered to replace some which was out of date. However, i’ve noticed that i only have 2 months to use this which i think is a little short on best before dates so in future i shall have to order smaller amounts. They arrived within the time stated although not super quick like some orders.
I’ve used dairystix for about six months when sailing; you can leave them in the boat for long periods (in my experience they seem to have a shelf life of about six months) both during the season and when laid up, and it means that i no longer have the problem of remembering to take fresh milk, which doesn’t last longer than a couple of days, unrefrigerated, in any case. They are fantastic; but it’s a pity they are not sold in quantities of less than 200 – that’s a lot of cups of tea. – although they can be frozen.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Easy to use but can be messy
- Dairystix uht Best Before
- Useful milk portions that I can use at work without a refrigerator.
The box of sachets arrived very promptly, and exactly as described. The only issue i had was that we were given 2 boxes of sachets with a shelf life of just 2 months which i thought wss not good.
Having been put back into production, it is an excellent choice for those going on holiday or visiting a hotel etc. , where they do not provide enough milk. Easily carried in your luggage/bags etc. And the milk tastes very good. Easy tear packaging and it pours very straight too, no more wet surfaces.
