A very heated debate in my mind is almond milk, milk? Or juice? At almost every chance I have gotten, I’ve been asking teachers and students what their opinion is. In my eyes, there is no way you can milk an almond therefore the almond “milk” is actually almond juice, I believe they coined that name for marketing purposes but what does everyone else think? I will now show a series of quotes that students have stated. Senior Hope Frisby who gave an honest quote said “It’s a juice with a milky texture”. Here’s A quote from Junior Ava Reed who agrees with Hope Frisby “It’s milk, but it is fake milk because it is not like regular milk. It is a lighter milk.” Senior Grady Schelle disagrees and says“Almond milk is a milk because they put milk in the name”.  Now, this quote from senior Jonah Wyant agrees with Grady Schelle“It’s milk, but it is fake milk because it is not like regular milk. It is a lighter milk.” Sadly I must say that of all four of the students I questioned, only two of them agreed with me. Now, this devastates me but I guess it is what it is.
