Is it like Astronaut Ice Cream?

In the modern world of genetically modified and engineered foods, the introduction of chocolate milk that does not require refrigeration and is always ready to drink, might create nervous unease over excitment. However, Nestlé's new Nesquik Shelf-Stable Chocolate Milk, unveiled on August 10, is not to be feared. The chocolate milk used is "real" and pasteurized at a high temperature without any preservatives. A specially sealed package from TetraPak keeps the milk fresh, so consumers can store it outside a fridge if necessary. The main approach of Nestlé to market the new product is directed toward on-the-go parents shuttling kids to soccer practice, ferrying them to dance class and packing school lunches, who want their kids to drink more milk throughout the day. In all my kiddy years, regular chocolate milk was never even considered milk, let alone chocolate milk with "special" attributes. But then again, it was the '80s, when most us still thought MC Hammer was all set to enjoy a lengthy, respectable career.
