We’ve come a long way since a pint of full fat, cow’s milk with cream-on-top was dropped off on our doorstep at 6am every morning by your moms friend, the milk man. Although it’s just as popular as it has always been, it seems milk has undergone more transformations and advances than any other staple in our diet.

We no longer have just low fat, skimmed or the full fat option available to us. Now we have so many options, we're overwhelmed with choice and indecision. Now in the name of milk...the world is our cow.

But what does the type of milk you use say about you, you ask? Well read on to find out.

1. Cow's Milk

You’re either in your mid to late twenties or over 45 years old, male, and you’re as stubborn as a bull.

2. Soya Milk

You prefer Lattes to Americano’s and you don’t eat cereal (mainly because Soy milk tastes rotten in corn flakes). You’ve also been lactose intolerant for at least 15 years.

3. Goat's Milk

You’re in your 40-50’s and are well versed in the cow vs goat debate. You also insisted on rearing your 4 - 8 kids on the stuff.

4. Almond Milk

You air on the side of hipster. You're a Vegetarian or a Vegan... when you're not on the Paleo buzz that is. You like to make almond, quinoa-porridge in the morning and you also claim to make your own almond milk. (You did actually try once but didn't realise you'd need quite so many almonds).

5. Hazelnut Milk

You’re even more alternative than the almond drinkers and this definitely gives you the "edge".

7. Oat Milk

Your hair resembles that of a unicorns mane and your skin has an etherial glow to it from all those extra aveeno-vitamins oat milk contains.

8. Macadamia Nut Milk

You're seriously ahead of the game and on to a winner. Soon Macademia nut milk will reign supreme over all the other milks. Just remember, we called it!
