• A Little History Lesson: It’s been a long time since fresh milk, cream, and cottage cheese were delivered right to your milk chute, but for almost 20 years, Twin Pines Dairy was perhaps Detroit ‘s finest creamery. Before the emergence of convenience stores, Twin Pines was such a success that it even had its own children’s television show, Milky’s Party Time, from 1950 to 1967. (Source:
