I don't think there is a difference, they're both fat-free.

Hello, I've never heard of fat-free milk. Skim milk is fat free. I have heard of 1% fat and some labels might have 98% fat-free, which means it still has some fat in it. I have seen fat-free ice-cream and non-fat ice-cream, which are basically the same things.

I always thought Fat-free is just that, fat-free 0%.. while skim milk is reduced fat, either 1% or 2%

Fat Free means just that Fat Free! I've been drinking it for years! I'm surprised you haven't seen it at the dairy case!
