    Edit: I knew what UHT meant (ultra high something) but no-one here seems to drink that kind of milk

    Fresh...wtf is UHT
    Really? you seriously don't know?
    It's just that although for me UHT/pasteurized/long life milk is the normal regular drink, I have heard that in the UK fresh milk is more popular so I was just wondering

    Fresh, no one chooses to drink UHT. It is just more convenient sometimes (camping etc).

    EDIT: But UHT is very very common abroad, I found it almost impossible to get fresh milk in many parts of Asia.

    That's quite a good idea, I might start doing that. Always run out of milk at the worst of times, just when I can't be arsed to go shopping.

    UHT, I don't actually like milk and neither does my mum, so it's pointless having fresh. We only have UHT in, in case of vistors etc

    UHT, but only because it's 50p per Litre in Tesco, and I'm poor. :P

    Fresh - UHT is awful, especially in tea and coffee. I've only ever seen in it fast food places or planes though, us Irish folk like our fresh milk...

    It actually depends where.
    In Africa and south Europe UHT is more common.

    I think UHT tastes better but that's because in airports I used to always drink the milk from the little plastic capsules they have for teas/coffees.

    UHT as it's much more widely available and cheaper.

    Back in the UK usually fresh as it's in a decent price range compared to UHT and it's delicious in comparison.

    I don't get how anyone would prefer the taste of UHT milk but each to their own. Fresh all the way.

    In Portugal most people (if not all) drink UHT but when I came to England I started drinking fresh but it was a lot of work so I went back to UHT

    I prefer fresh but am currently on my year abroad where fresh milk is rather scarce in comparison to the UK. UHT is also cheaper and after a while you get used to the taste.
