The Granddaddy of Amazon Customer-reviewed Products

We've had fun with facetious Amazon customer reviews for a number of odd products, like the TSA Security Checkpoint toy, the Three Wolf Moon Shirt, and the Table That Attaches to Your Steering Wheel (which has the world's greatest customer images). But the granddaddy of all customer-reviewed Amazon products is Tuscan Whole Milk, which we featured back in 2006.
One should not be intimidated by Tuscan Whole Milk. Nor should one prejudge, despite the fact that Tuscan is non-vintage and comes in such large containers. Do not be fooled: this is not a jug milk. I always find it important to taste milk using high-quality stemware -- this is milk deserving of something better than a Flintstones plastic tumbler. One should pour just a small dollop and swirl it in the glass -- note the coating and look for clots or discoloration. And the color -- it should be opaque, and very, very white. Now, immerse your nose in the glass and take a whiff. Tuscan transports you instantly to scenic hill towns in central Italy (is that Montepulciano I detect?) --- there is the loamy clay, the green grass of summer days, the towering cypress.

Of course, the attraction was the novelty of a mail-order vendor selling fresh milk -which they don't do anymore, but the product is available from "other sellers", starting at $48.09. And now there are 1,240 reviews! Don't miss the eight-stanza poem one reviewer left, along with five stars. -Thanks, Joe Kooman!

I love the joke reviews on Amazon, and then the comments back to them are usually pretty funny too. Even the, "How dare you make a joke, don't you realize you're not being helpful AT ALL. Don't you want to help them make a good decision? What is wrong with you? This is not the place to make jokes, people's lives will be affected."
