International Weekend: Nestle Milo

Nestle Milo chocolate malt drink found in either liquid in Red Bull-sized cans or powdered and ready-to-mix in jars. It's very popular in Malaysia and Singapore (but also available in other countries) and if you find it in a store here in the States, it is probably from Malaysia like this 8-ounce can that I bought for 79 cents.

Interestingly enough, Milo is marketed as an energy drink and is fortified with vitamins and minerals. It also has a bit of fiber from the malt.
I don't know if I would drink it as an energy drink but it's like a pleasant, slightly thicker cup of chocolate milk with a hint of vanilla which is pretty nice in my book, especially when it's nicely chilled out of the fridge.

  1. Most of us aren’t eating as healthfully as we probably should be. Perhaps it’s due to a lack of time, a lack of money for nutritious foods, or maybe just a lack of knowledge about what constitutes a healthy diet. In any of these instances, the idea of supplements can be quite appealing to fill in any gaps that you might have in your diet.

  2.  Easy to blend and build the minerals in this foundation magically reduce the appearance of redness, imperfections, blemishes and visible pores. With an SPF of 25 this product also protects the skin from sun damage. Plus, the recyclable container with a lid is bound to make the planet smile.

  3. This is a special form of liquid diet that is made out of fruits and fresh vegetables. The juice is made out of organic foods which are important in the process of body detoxification and healing of damaged tissues. Juice fasting can also be used as detox diet since it contains a lot fiber which helps the liver and kidney to eliminate toxic substances from the blood alongside prevention of constipation.

  4. I think they're a little better now... but just a little. My cousin had me try some modern rations... it was interesting...

  5. No weevils though.

  6. I'm not surpised Milo is marketed as an energy drink.  I have heard that chocolate milk provides many of the same benefits as Gatorade, Powerade, etc. when exercising.

  7. I knew that milk was good for after a workout but never heard the chocolate milk bit before. Interesting though!
