Say I have the following sentence:
I went to the store to buy eggs, regular, chocolate and soy milk, apples, and bread.
There are two and clauses here, one that describes the kinds of milk I was buying, and one that describes the other groceries.
One option would be:
I went to the store to buy eggs, regular milk, chocolate milk, soy milk, apples, and bread.
But that seems redundant and wordy. What's best? A big problem with the first one is that it's not immediately clear whether I mean chocolate or chocolate milk, since chocolate can be either a noun or an adjective in this case.
