Cookie Clicker – What Does Milk Do

Cookie Clicker - What Does Milk Do

Cookie Clicker’s release on Steam has led to an influx of new people filled with questions. That’s why I’ve put together this guide on what does milk do because it’s easy to not know. This is one of the many complex mechanics if you dig a little deeper. Continue reading our guide below on what it does, how to get more, and a secret achievement at the bottom.

What Does Milk Do in Cookie Clicker

Cookie Clicker -Kitten Upgrades

As you get further into Cookie Clicker, you’ll come across upgrades that often benefit each other.

When you first start playing you won’t have many milk flavors as they revolve around achievements. As you unlock achievements, you’ll slowly but surely unlock milk flavors that can increase your cookies per second (CPS). But, you’ll need to also get Kitten upgrades that increase your CPS based on how much milk you have.

This is why the two features go hand-in-hand in speeding up your overall cookie output. Fortunately, Kitten upgrades also unlock based on the number of achievements you have. That’s why it’s important to prioritize getting achievements since they play an important role. If you want to see how much you’re getting from Kitten upgrades, there’s a multiplier stat under Achievements in the stats section.

Aside from that, each flavor also provides a minor cosmetic change in Cookie Clicker. You may have noticed the pool of milk below your cookie on the left side. The color changes with every new milk you unlock. Once you’ve ascended at least once, the Classic Dairy Selection heavenly upgrade becomes available.

While the milk flavors are only cosmetic, it is a nice change to see.

This upgrade lets you pick whichever milk flavor you want visibly shown. However, it’s still only a cosmetic effect meaning it doesn’t have an impact on your game. If you’d like to see how many achievements are required for a milk flavor or Kitten upgrade, take a look below.

Cookie-Dunker Achievement in Cookie Clicker

Someone must have figured out this Cookie Clicker achievement by accident.

One of the many silly achievements requires resizing your game window. Surprisingly, the pool of milk is actually important for the Cookie-Dunker achievement. If you resize your window enough to force the cookie into the milk, you’ll get this achievement. It’s a simple one, but it’ll help you early on when you don’t have many.

That’s all there is to this Cookie Clicker guide on what does milk do. If you’re interested in more fun idle games for Android phones, be sure to visit our other site. Or if you’d prefer, you can even find Cookie Clicker on Android as well.
