Got Milk? Reduced fat milk that tastes like whole--what's available in your neck of the woods?

I love whole milk, but as a struggling cholesterol kid, it's not on my menu. Thankfully, I don't need drugs so far. I am very much a milk lover and am pleased that there are two reduced-fat options that taste as good as the real thing, (baby).

Here in the Land of Steady Habits, and all over New England, Simply Smart milk is readily available. I love the stuff (purple container--1 percent milk that tastes like whole). One of my dearest friends has always bought the green container (fat-free) and I’d ask why he didn’t just drink water.

We have that and Garelick, both of which are N.E. based, thus whatever is on sale is always in the fridge here:

I can’t imagine this is unique to New England. You must understand, I never outgrew my love for a glass of milk and this stuff is terrific. So, for everyone out there who's trying to move the needle a little bit or kick Crestor (!), what similar brands are available on your dairy shelf?
