I don’t like Milo Dinosaur* but I always had the propensity to use Milo in ways that give people pause. I think it started in my late teens. A growing me was left to my own devices and what do I choose as my snack? Eat cereal and to make sure I don’t feel hungry too soon, thus requiring another effort at feeding myself, I would add Milo. I don’t like it undissolved, no.
It seemed perfectly normal when you are alone. And I don’t do it that often but then sometimes people chance upon me doing it.
I would add two teaspoons to a cereal drink. Someone stares. I would make a cup of Milo, wait a little while it cooled, and then pour corn flakes into it. Someone asks a question.
So in case there is some poor kid out there who (a) happens to feel misunderstood and (b) reads this blog**, here you go. And to those who wonder why you need the Milo to cool, it is so that heat does not render the cereal soggy. And to those who already know this, here’s a tip for you: add a dash of milk from the fridge to cool the drink down.
*an iced drink you get at coffee shops where a very thick version of the chocolate malt drink has additional undissolved powder slathered on top
**the chances aren’t very high, I know. But I am helpful like this.
