Yesterday I opened a new jug of milk and poured a glass for my daughter. When I tilted the jug back up, there was a long strand of something between the glass and the milk jug. I kept moving the jug, and the strand reached about 18 inches before it broke. It looked like a long booger made out of milk, and when I wiped it up, it was thick and gooey.

I took the jug back to the store and returned it. I told the store employee that it had a "milk booger" because I couldn't think of a better way to describe it. He was giggling while he refunded my $2.69 icon_biggrin.gif

But now I'm wondering what on earth it was? It wasn't like the skin that forms on a pan of milk when it's boiled, it was clear in some spots.

Sometimes, it's best not to know.

I wonder if it was a portion of the plastic jug that didn't set up right or something? That's gross!!

The bad thing is, my little kiddo who doesn't grow much was watching me pour the glass of milk. We keep telling her she has to drink milk so she can grow...but who wants to drink milk after they see the milk booger?

That is so nasty! What the heck could that have been?

Hey, I had something weird in an egg that still bothers me as to what it was. It was a solid oval-shaped thing about the size of a small grape that was a milky white color, and it was just inside the egg in the eggwhite. Was that an egg booger?

costumeczar, maybe that was a fertilized egg that had developed partway, but not enough to be recognizable, but past the dot of blood stage.

Anyhow, DH used to work at the plant that processes the milk. He wasn't surprised at all about the milk booger but he couldn't guess what it was either.

i think that part of the egg is like a membrane, doesn't make it sound any more appetizing icon_razz.gif

or maybe we are talking about different things, I am talking about like that clearish googy bit that dangles and takes a bit of giggling to detach from the egg shell once you have broken it hehe

Texas Rose, I think you're right, that was what I was thinking. This wasn't the membrane, it was a solid thing, like a waxy texture in the shape of a tiny egg inside the egg.


Eeeewww...

So happy i don't drink milk...but my son will drink a gallon a day and as much as a gallon of milk costs here ($3.99) I will be paying more attention to what may be lurking in the container!

That actually sounds kind of like "conjoined twins", egg-style. It's really rare, but an underdeveloped egg, usually yolkless, can end up inside another egg during the egg-production process. The regular egg is usually bigger than normal, but if the egg inside was really small, this might not have been the case.

In that context, you just had a baby egg inside the full sized one. Sort of like the itty bitty baby bell pepper that you sometimes find inside a big pepper.
