Hmmm... I've been debating on doing a weekly blog on my favorite things. I know I have a few absolute staples in my life that I always want; like beverages, maybe a snack, and other weird silly life pleasing things. So I'll start it today and see if I stick with it.
I'll start off with a daily beverage that I absolutely love love LOVE.
I've drank chocolate milk almost everyday as long as I can remember. The days I go without might be when I go out of town, or I've ran out of milk (it's rare that I won't go out to buy milk the same day i run out, but there may have been that rare occasion when I haven't).
Chocolate Milk to me is a meal or a late night snack. I absolutely WILL NOT drink milk or chocolate milk with a meal, but will drink regular milk with something sweet like cookies or brownies. Chocolate milk and sweets do not mix. For example chocolate milk and cookies do not go together, two sweets equal no sweets, the flavors get canceled out. But that's just me.
I'm weird with my milk. In El Paso my go to brand of milk was Price's Milk, and I was a bit disturbed when we move to Austin. Mom didn't bring home Price's milk anymore, so I had to go to the store and get it myself, but to my dismay nowhere in the milk section was Price's milk to be found. This is when I learned some brands are regional only. UGH!!!
I don't recall how long it took for me to find the taste I now love, but I did, and it's wonderful.
My favorite milk and chocolate flavoring is ......
Bordon (whole milk) and Ovaltine Chocolate Malt, and only chocolate malt.
Usually I'll have anywhere from 1-5 Ovaltine Chocolate Malt canisters ready for back-up. This is one item I don't want to run out of.
I drink this combination anywhere from 1-3 times a day. Every morning I make a glass for me and my son (my daughter got off the milk train, but will occasionally drink it). Sometimes in the evening when I'm not in the mood for dinner I'll drink chocolate milk, and those late nights when dinner has been hours ago I'll have a glass before bed.
MMMMMMMmmmmmmmm it's sooo good.
Do you have a chocolate milk combination that you love in your area? I'd love to hear it.
(I have not been asked or paid to proclaim my love for Bordon or Ovaltine, but I'd be more than happy to accept gifts from them since I do love them sooo much.)
