When I was a child, I did not like milk. I did like chocolate milk, though. Thought it was great. Nestle’s Quick! The Chocolate Bunny.
As someone who is trying to relive their youth, when I saw “Adult Chocolate Milk”, 40 Proof, I could not have been happier. And, it has a cool bottle. Kind of like the old Grolsch (should be some oomlaut or something in there but I am too lazy to look up the alt codes) beer bottles. Grabbed a bottle at Costco. Chilled it and got ready to be transported back to a happy childhood (but even better because of the buzz I would have).
Let me also tell you about my childhood. I would get sick a reasonable amount. I was not especially sickly, but all kids get sick fairly often. I would often get a cough. If I was at my Grandmother’s house that was all to the good – medicinal Irish Whiskey; but at my own house not so good. Had to have Triaminic. Now in these wonderfully advanced times, almost all medicine tastes like bubblegum, with the occasional grape or berry thrown in. In those days, it had much more of a medicine taste/smell.
Getting back to the Adult Chocolate Milk. It seems that someone spilled my triaminic into the chocolate milk.
Long story shorter. This product is kind of fun, but not as great as I thought it would be. Kind of like a mudslide, but just has a bit of medicinal taste to it. Not sure why. Perhaps I got a slightly off bottle, but I do not think so. I may just be a bit too old and think about the taste a bit too much. I would imagine that this would go over extremely well with the college crowd. Maybe I have just not had chocolate milk in so long that I am just romanticizing it a bit too much.
Whatever the reason, I enjoyed trying the product, but I will probably not be a habitue. If you are going to buy some, pull it out at a party so you can kill the whole bottle at one time letting everyone try it. Otherwise you are left with my dilemma – I do not want to drink the rest of it, but my religion forbids my throwing perfectly good alcohol out. I guess I will have to keep it around and foist it on to unsuspecting guests until it is gone. Or wait until it is the last thing in the house and let the cardinal rule of Locustry take over.
