Lactic Enlightenment Searching for the essence of Milk and Milk Bars

The Experience

So, what exactly is a National Milk Bar?

Well, to be honest, I don’t know yet (but this web site is going to be a record of my discoveries)

What I remember about them, however, is that they were:

- Quite large

- Always warm in the Winter

- Filled with tables and chairs (usually plastic chairs and Formica tables)

- Had a long counter with sticky buns, scones, pies, sandwiches, tea, coffee and, of course, MILK

- The Milk was in one of those chilled, clear plastic tubs with a rotating thing to keep it moving

- And there was always a wide selection of brightly coloured milk flavourings on optics behind the ‘bar’

- In a National Milk Bar were folks of all ages and from all walks of life

- And there was always a ‘lost cat’ board with local notices.

Always the centre of the local community, they’d be a perfect place to exchange gossip. Hence the perfect setting for a joke about gossip that relies on the (Northern) Welsh accent for 60% of the Humour.
