Who knew that a gallon of Tuscan whole milk could inspire such prose? Amazon review sections have become something of a phenomena, with intricate and creative reviews like the ones written about a banana slicer. "What can I say about the 571B Banana Slicer that hasn't already been said about the wheel, penicillin, or the iPhone.... "

The same goes for Tuscan whole milk, with over 1,000 lengthy and well-written reviews. Like this Poe inspired review from Edgar, which has gotten more than 12,000 responses:

"Presently my soul grew stronger; hesitating then no longer,
'This,' said I, 'requires an extra dram of milk, my favorite pour.'
To the icebox I aspired, motivated to admire
How its avocado pigment complemented my decor.
Then I grasped its woodgrain handle - here I opened wide the door; -
Darkness there, and nothing more."

Or take this passage from Catherine's short story about Tuscan Whole Milk:

"After a long hard week full of days he would burst through the door, his fatigue hidden behind a smile. There was an icy jug of Tuscan Whole Milk, 1 Gallon, 128 fl oz in his right hand. With his left hand he would grip my waist - I was always cooking dinner - and press the cold frostiness of the jug against my arm as he kissed my cheek."

So, did you find this review of a review of reviews helpful?
