A little mini (organic!) contest

Give me enough time, and I will wax philosophical about my deep-seated love of organic milk. The Cliff Notes version is basically “no girl should have boobs before her time,” but there’s lots of reasons to love companies committed to providing wholesome, organic foods besides the issue of early puberty.

Anyway, a little while ago the nice folks at Horizon Organic sent me some of their milk in a space pod. Er, I mean, a styrofoam case designed to protect it and keep it cold. They wanted me to “try” their milk. But the joke’s on them, because we already love their milk. In fact, my kids “tried” their entire half-gallon of milk in about two days flat. Heh. My current grocery strategy is to buy my organics from local sources whenever possible, but when I cannot get it local, I head for the Horizon.

And now you can head for the Horizon! One lucky Want Not reader will receive three (3) coupons good for free Horizon products, just because Horizon is nice like that. To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. tonight, March 13th, 2008. I’ll choose the winner at random by throwing organic milk on my computer and seeing where it lands. Except not really. (Apparently going organic does not affect how much you lie.)



  1. can i try horizon? 🙂

  2. Ooohh! Love the Horizon!!

  3. count me in please. I love organic milk!

  4. I already love Horizon…now there is the issue of the water supply….:(

  5. Oh my heck I hope I win this one! My kids drink so much milk.

  6. I LOVE organic Milk! And I love FREE even better!!!

  10. Yay, another contest!

  11. Yeah, we’d love an entry!

  12. Thanks for the chance.

  13. Come on, number 12!

  14. YUM! Now if only you had cookies…..

  15. Crossing my fingers to win!

  16. Yea! I love Horizon!! 🙂

  17. My hubby wants only organic milk for our 4 and 1yo daughters, for the reason you specified. Its costly, and with gas prices pushing $3.25 per gallon, and both of us commuting a total of 120 miles per day, we could use the free milk!!

  18. I loves me some organic milk – and I’d love to win!

  19. Love organic milk!
    Love soy mild too!
    count me in!!!

  20. Thanks for another great giveaway!

  21. I’ll try it!

  22. I LOVE organic milk! And my daughter’s school serves Horizon too! We buy the Costco house brand because it is about 1/3 cheaper–3 1/2 gallons for 8.00 vs the local grocery store of 6.99 for 1 gallon! Horizon also pops up in her snack since the individual serving size doesn’t need to be refrigerated (also buy by the case at Costco!)

  23. Nothing but organic milk here. Just say no to growth hormones and pesticides!

  24. pick me, pick me!!

  25. I’d love to try it, pretty Mir.

  26. Me! Me! Me!

  27. Throwing my number in for the randomness.

  28. we’d love a chance

  29. Oh pretty Mir! And pretty, pretty randomizer! I’ve never tried organic milk, but if it could make my boobs smaller, I am soooo in!

    OK, even if it doesn’t do that (but oh how I wish…) I’m thinking I should try it out — even my two year old.

  30. I would love to win. Please put my name in the drawing.



  31. Pick me! Pick Me! I wanna try!!

  32. Count me in as another one who loves this milk!

  33. We love their little chocolate milks and buy the half gallons at the store…

    count me in..


  34. Awesome!! soooooooo yummy….

  35. I’ve never tried it.

  36. I would love to try Horizon!!

  37. Wow, I thought “free organic” was an oxymoron!

  38. I’ve never tried it, but would certainly like to try it out with my family.

  39. I’ve wanted to try organic milk but am scared off by the price tag for our two-gallons-a-week family. Now that we’re expecting our first little one, though, I’m considering switching. I’d love to win these coupons!

  40. Count me in!

  41. We so want to go all organic, but it’s $6 a gallon where I live!!!

  42. comment comment comment. hee.

  43. I just started buying organic milk, and i don’t think i’ll be going back to the old kind!

  49. entering!

  50. We’d love to try some!

  51. Count me in!

  52. Yay, pretty Mir! A co-worker and I were just talking about how we shell out for organic milk because we don’t want our daughters to have adult-sized breasts when they’re seven!

  53. Would love to try this! Thanks, Mir.

  54. Count me in! Of course, throughout my reading of your course, I kept thinking “Organic” was “Garlic” and now I’m thinking about garlic milk and trying to decide whether that would be awful or occasionally useful…

  55. Hoping 55 is the magic number

  56. Milk. Yum.

  57. Would love to get us some organic milk! Thanks!

  58. Moo!

  59. love the organic milk, but what does that say for the company about dumping all that styrofoam into the environment?!

  60. I would like to try horizon!

  61. I never win anything! Pick me!

  62. I LOVE organic milk too! I really want to win!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. I want to try it too!

  64. I would love some Horizon!

  65. Yay milk! I recently started buying more organic food items and milk is one of the items I want to go all-organic on 🙂

  66. oh suuuuure count me in!

  67. Please? Not only does my family drink organic milk, I use it to culture organic buttermilk. That makes incredible pancakes and biscuits.

  68. Pretty Mir has a pretty deal for me.

  69. I keep meaning to ask the pediatrician about the puberty thing, because we go through three or four gallons of milk a week at our house, and I only want to switch to organic if there really is a connection. Not ALL milk-drinking girls are going through early puberty, and so I need to research what the explanation is for that—but I am So! Very! Lazy!

    Anyway, put me in the running, because you have really been selling me on the “groceries is not an area for skimping” concept.

  70. sweet! CMI please.

  71. I would love organic milk coupons.

  72. I’ll try almost anything for free. Or on a dare.

  73. I would love to win these.

  74. The first change we made to organic was with Horizon Organic milk about 5 years ago. My kids also love the yogurt products and sometimes we get the cottage cheese and cheese sticks when the price is acceptable.

  75. We switched to organic milk this year and we almost always get Horizon…I could definitely use some coupons!!!

  76. yeah for boobless children!

  77. My three toddlers go through a lot of milk in a week! I’d love some coupons!

  78. Great! We buy organic milk for our daughter.

  81. I’ll try it!

  82. Oooh! Pick me! We love Horizon in our house!!

  83. I’ve never tried organic, but I want to. Especially since I’m about to give birth to my daughter any day now.

  92. Mmmm. Milk.

  93. Yay for healthy bones!

  94. We got hooked on the organic milk boxes when my little boy was right at a year old. He never liked milk (unless it was from a boob) before then, but the vanilla got him into it and now he drinks it everyday. I would love to get some for free!

  95. Slap me some Organic baby!

  114. Keep those growth hormones out of my girlies! Thanks for the contest!

  115. Thanks, Mir and Horizon!

  123. OOoo, we love Horizon little boxes…

  124. Uh. Wow. Who would think organic milk would draw such a crowd? Remember when we would all line up outside of Tower Records to buy Genesis tickets? And the line was really long because there was no such thing as buying concert tickets ON LINE because ON LINE wasn’t even *invented* yet?

    This is totally where groupies go to grow old.

  125. Please count me in, this would be perfect for my daughter. Thanks!

  165. Milk pleaseandthankyou.

  166. I’m all for keeping my little girl little as long as I can!

  167. Yet we still call Horizon Milk “cow milk” because of the cute cows on the label.

    Please choose me!

  183. Horizon milk rocks!

  184. Hmmm, is it the same flavor, etc, as regular milk? Is it available in TX?

  185. I love Horizon organic milk! I’d imagine that FREE Horizon Organic milk would be even tastier!! And just in time…my youngest turns 1 next week so it’s time to swap formula for milk. Yippee!!

  195. What are my chances? 1 in 195? Or since I have the worst luck, even if I had a 1 in 1 chance, I’d still not win, 1 in 195 is more like 1 in a billion. But put me in the hat anyway. I’d love some hormone-free FREE milk!
