Group Information
Group Name: MILO Mums
Description:
MILO is a kiwi institution. For years New Zealand families have been giving their kids the nutritious goodness of MILO as a hot or cold drink. Think back and remember those wintry and wet days when your mum would make you a hot MILO when you came in from school dripping wet. Or the family camping trips where everyone made sure that the MILO was packed for a late-night taste of home. And who will confess to the sneaky "one spoonful for the cup, one for the mouth" approach to making a MILO when you were a kid (actually, I still do that!).

MILO mums is all about recalling those memories of what makes MILO special to kiwi families.

I have always made my milo one part milk to like 10 parts hot water. But my husband makes a yummy milk milo!! Fill your mug with milk a few teaspoons of milo a little sugar and microwave for 1min 30 so so so yummy!! Stir and sometimes I add a dollop of ice-cream DELISH!

I was soexcited when my MILO pack arrived that I dropped everything (I was digging around in the garden when it came) and rushed inside to put the jug on. Luckily it started to rain then, so my guilt at not finishing my chores was assuaged immediately and also put me right in the mood for a milky milo!
I made a slightly cooler one for Lochie and gave it to him, but sadly, he didn't seem to like it very much. Not surprising because he's never had anything sweet, and he's teething so he's fussy, so i figure that HIS milky milo days are yet to come. I think I have a picture of me as a two year old drinking it in front of the fire, so maybe hes too young also, to appreciate the taste.
I however, made mine subscribing to the "one for the cup, one for me" methind of Milo makingand then I sat down to enjoy what was my first milo in about 4 years.

Well, it brought back all the memories I have of milo just taking that one sip! days of coming home from soccer or netball soaking wet and cold, days of coming in from the farm after calving covered in mud, hungry, thirsty and gagging for something hot....Its comforting, warming, and OH SO TASTY!

Later when Shayne got home from work, again cold, wet, miserable, I made him one by heating milk in a pot over the fire and adding the milo - just like the old days - and as always, it was a winner....seeig him clutching the cup warming his hands made me smile.

I'm not sure when or why i stopped buying milo. maybe it was my budget, maybe it was the concern about my diet at the time, I don't know, but what I do know is that it is infinately comforting to have it again, and that I will now be buying it again on a regular basis.....the hardest part is not EATING it straight out of the packet or sprinkled on ice cream or my personal adult fave...made with milk and a splash of Baileys irish cream .....

Milo, you are a kiwi instituion, you have been with us for a long long time because of the feelings you evoke from your customers...and after this trial I can say that one old stalwart is coming back to the fold a newly dedicated follower.

Thank you for the memories and for the good times to come Milo. And welcome back to my cupboard.

PS: I would have put photos in of us drinking our milo on the deck wrapped up like eskimos, but as I am on dial up loading a photo would be too painful. So you will just have to imagine us sitting there, clutching a warm cup to thaw our hands while the wind howled around us and rain poured down outside......
