Eye Spy....my secret (food) shame

It's a funny theme today from Jade over at Just Needs Salt.

When it comes to some foods (particularly anything sweet and chocolately), I just never grew up. I still drink my milo like this.... 1/3 milo and 2/3 milk - and I eat the milo from the top with a teaspoon.... just like I always did! I also still like to just eat milo straight out of the tin, but I've tried to curb that behaviour. Luckily, I'm not trying to set a good example to any little kiddies.

It's all gone now and it was delicious.

Head on over to visit Cindy to play along.

Yes! I used to do this all the time. Sometimes I'd eat if off the top, sometimes I would mix it in for some very thick and filling choccie milk! I haven't had milo in ages (too expensive for something that goes so fast) but this is giving me a serious craving!

Yeah, I do that still too (not often but every once in a while). My husband who is a kiwi (& didn't grow up drinking milo like that) can't believe that's how I eat/drink it. I think he thinks its gross. It is never around long enough for him to try it though...

I think you are quite restrained. The man of this house has 2/3 milo 1/3 milk.

Little Diva said...

Oh my God - that sounds like you're talking about me !!

Definitely a tradition that has been passed onto the children and I have no shame I encourage a spoon full of milo from the tin...it seems it has to be an essential part of the 'rite of passage'...love it!

Michelle said...

i have about 1/2 and 1/2 as i'm lactose intolerant so i just mix it all up and eat the soggy milo...
but it still gives me a tummy ache...but a little price to pay...

I can't believe someone else does exactly what I do - well actually, after reading your other comments, alot of people obviously do! Yummy... I sometimes even do 1/2 milo, 1/2 milk... naughty, I know!

sewfunky said...

I seriously love milo, can't stand the inferior copies (bournvita anyone - eeew!) You just can't beat a good milo, hot or cold!!!

I love nescafe drinking chocolate in my hot frothed milk with a touch of cinnamon...it's a good standby for when there's no chocolate to be found in the house...well...life's for enjoying isn't it!

Ummmm just like my boys! Oh and me when they are at school 0 evil grin

Sarah said...

When my American cousins came to visit they perfected a method involving drinking hot milo through a Tim Tam with both ends nibbled off. It's quite entertaining to watch!

Yum - I haven't had a Milo like that for ages.

I love Milo! And I used to do this, too.

potty mouth mama said...

I drink it exactly the same. EXACTLY!!

A said...

Yummy~
I like my milo like that too.
Oooo, and on icecream - might go and get some RIGHT NOW!

Taccolina said...

Mmm, I used to have a housemate who would rub milo powder into butter and then eat that. I think you're way out in front, yours is such a popular method!
PS - love the tim-tam corners one. I always wanted to try that.

Jade said...

yep, the only way to have it! yum!!

Jenny said...

That's just how I like mine too! I have limited my milo intake to one a week as I had a serious problem-so Sunday is my Milo day!

Little Munchkins said...

That's me too! 3 heaped tablespoons of Milo and milk, or warm water if there's no milk. My sons has a glass on milo and milk everynight too :)

renae said...

That is the only way to have milo!
