What is a "Dairy Drink"?

This is something found at the HEB in Austin Texas. Why not just drink milk, in its dazzling varieties?

    It's a sad comment on a lot of things, but presumably people who buy it buy it because it's "about half the price of milk." No?

      i think here in some areas if you put additives in milk (eg: cocoa and sugar) you can no longer call it milk, so, you call it a dairy drink.

        I'm thinking it is the liquid equivalent of "cheese food"
        Can't call it milk because of too many additives and too little milk solids.

          it's a dairy-esque drinkable beverage substance.
