Postmix milk blender

Just add butter

Supermarkets now seem to stock a bewildering range of different milks; full fat, extra creamy, half-and-half, low fat, no fat ... fortunately they're often (but not always) colour coded.

Problems arise when a particular type of milk is desired, but the shop has sold out of that type. Plenty of all the others, but none of type "n".

This problem can be neatly avoided by visiting an establishment which uses the new BorgCo postmix reblender for milk.

All milk is delivered to the store as fat-free, in a refrigerated semibulk container, along with a cartridge of butter.

Should you desire fat free milk, then the machine dispenses a container of the chosen size, capped and sealed. One container of each size and milk type is always waiting in the refrigerated "ready use" compartment, like a vending machine. When that container is removed by a customer, the processing system automatically blends a new portion of milk to the desired specification, and drops it into the slot in the compartment.

The benefits of such a system are so obvious that no further explanation is needed.

       mmmkay, tentative bun pending so what's the difference between buttermilk and x% cream then ?
FlyingToaster, Sep 23 2011

       Just the label actually, but consumers are very stupid. It's something we've rather come to rely on here at BorgCo.

       won't work. Butter isn't cream.
FlyingToaster, Sep 23 2011

       Well, you know how they churn butter, can't they just un-churn it?

       // Butter isn't cream //   

       No, but butter was cream at one point in its production.   

       Apply enough heat, pressure, mechanical agitation and emulsifiers and it's possible.

       why not just skip butter and make it a dollop of double-cream.
