New Zealand Is Running Out Of Chocolate Milk And People Are Going Insane

Security guards have been called in to watch over stocks of Lewis Road Creamery Fresh Chocolate Milk.

Posted on

Lewis Road Creamery Fresh Chocolate Milk went on sale three weeks ago, and since then New Zealand seems to have erupted into some sort of chocolate-milk induced haze.

The demand for the milk is so high that security guards have been hired to monitor areas that stock it.

The interest in it has surprised me immensely. We've had some pretty good product launches in the past but this pretty much takes the cake.

A black market for the chocolate milk has also emerged on Trademe.

Whilst those inside the country completely understand the phenomenon.

Welcome to New Zealand, where we close doors to protect our parliament, and hire security guards to protect chocolate milk in supermarkets.
