Too much flavour for milk

Marigold HL Milk has been promoting their products aggressively on Mediacorp for years. The actresses always seem so happy, sipping on their glass of Marigold HL Milk. Unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case for me.

Sure, the milk is creamy, thick and smooth. But what I don’t appreciate much is the strong vanilla taste their original milk has. It tastes borderline artificial and too sweet for my liking. I prefer my milk to have a milky taste, not vanilla. Marigold HL Chocolate milk tastes good though. It’s really chocolatey and not too rich to the point where you feel jelat after a few gulps.

If you’re crazy about vanilla flavoured milk, you will like the Marigold HL. But personally, I’ll just stick to their chocolate milk.

Creative advertisements but the products are okay

Marigold produces creative advertisements but I'm not a fan of their products.

I believe HL milk represents Marigold because it is the most popular product among the rest. However, the milk isn't creamy enough for my liking. The milk is too thick and it coats your tongue.

I would say I prefer another brand with the initials DL.

Marigold is fantastic, producing quality fruit juices and purees. However, their HL Milk is a different thing altogether.

Despite claiming that it is fresh milk, it is anything but. If you compare authentic fresh milk with their produce, it is totally different. I have nothing against pasteurised milk, but this branding is a lie to their customers. I remember this so vividly as my dad once had gastric flu, and the doctor recommended him to consume fresh milk. Lo and behold, HL worsened his case. Luckily he made a full recovery in time.

Ought to step it up.

Isn't it odd that Peel Fresh orange juice lists, amongst the usual preservatives and stabilisers, milk solids in its ingredients? Why would milk be added to orange juice? Doesn't it curdle? I suppose that's what emulsifiers are for.

I like the Peel Fresh mango juice best. Then again, I like anything mango flavoured. The apple and aloe vera is also quite good. I also quite like the pink guava. The vegetable juice with the carrots on the carton is the only one out of the lot that I don’t like. In general, the Peel Fresh range is quite realistic-tasting despite the sugar overload.

Marigold is also responsible for HL Milk. HL stands for High in Calcium, Low in Fat but it really ought to stand for Horrid Lactation. Doesn’t taste like milk at all. Really makes you wonder what they did to the poor cow to make it produce milk that tastes that bad.

Marigold has been a popular brand in every family for many years. They had produced so many products from fruits juices to milk and yoghurts. They have also constantly been improving their products by introducing more interesting and well-received flavours for their juices and milk. For example the banana milk.

For me I prefer their fruit juice more than their milk. As their fruit juice are 100% made from fresh fruits without any sugar added which are suitable for health conscious people just like me! But for their milk, I feel it's a little too thick and too sweet for me which I made me felt a little fattening if I were to drink a full glass of their milk everyday.

too sweet
Overall Rating

Marigold defies its very own tagline- For health. For life. There is nothing healthy about Marigold juices. The yogurts, maybe. Marigold has a wide span of fruit juices- orange, mango, apple (with aloe vera bits), triple berries, guava and many more. It can be found at every 7-11 store, supermarket and small 'mama' shops too. They come in 1 litre cartons, a convenient buy for the whole family or even in packets, easily potable for school-going children and busy individuals.

I personally find the drinks too sweet and artificial, as is expected of anything that you have not made at home. If you have the time, i would highly recommend squeezing your own fruit juices at home.

Marigold has one of the most intensive ad campaigns among juice brands in Singapore. Everyone can remember the dancing cow with the sombrero full of fruits. But I don't think the quality of Marigold juices matches up to its hype.

With many Singaporeans being better able to afford top-range juice, Marigold is losing out. For example, for orange juice, my family has switched 5 years ago to Florida's Natural. The said brand boasts all natural juice without preservatives and colouring. And of course, it tastes a lot better than Marigold.

Of course, Marigold does have a few unique products. I like to have mangosteen juice from time to time. But for any given brand of juice, I'd say Marigold quality isn't the best.
