A Surprising Number of Americans Think Chocolate Milk Comes From Brown Cows

A recent, nationally representative online survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults by the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy found that 7 percent believe the color of the cow is what's responsible for chocolate milk, according to a report from The Washington Post.
