Milkette (also referred to as Dairy Milker, Creamette or Creamers) are single serving of milk (2%) or cream (10% and 18%) in 12 millilitres (0.42 imp fl oz; 0.41 US fl oz) containers used for coffee and tea. They are a common condiment at coffee shops and on airlines in Canada and the United States.

The single cup of milk is stored in a sealed (foil cover) plastic cup of milk or cream with long shelf life.[1] They are sold in bulk amounts (bagged or in paper board box) of 100s. They are usually bought for commercial use, but individual consumers can purchase bulk orders.

Criticism[edit]

Milkettes are single serving and thrown out generating garbage. Some retailers are opting for pump dispensers (using aspectic milk bags) or in insulated milkjars. Also, plastic pots use a lot of packaging, so milk in plastic packets (same size as pots), such as Dairystix,[2] are becoming more popular.
