    Default The American Ice Cream Sandwich

    Thought I'd add a video from my YouTube channel, TheNakedWombat for a little light hearted relief. The American Ice Cream Sandwich.

    LOL Thanks for the moring smile SpiderThug!
    I'm wondering if Milo is the same as Ovaltine in Canada...
    The latest trend on this side of the world is sandwiching food between two donuts.

    The hot food item at this year's Canadian National Exhibition was the Krispy Kreme burger.
    The mother of all burgers packs up to 1,550 calories, more than three-quarters of a womanís recommended daily average total of about 2,000 calories and a significant portion of the 2,500 calories suggested for men ó depending on a personís level of activity.
    And not to be out done, one of our local restaurants is featuring a ice-cream sandwich made with two of their home-made donuts. Decadent.

    Wow, that seems so...yummy...not. LOL

    Ovaltine is different to Milo. Milo is made from barley malt, originally to help fight child malnutrition during the great depression. Ovaltine tastes awful.

    Next time you're in Toronto, you bring the Milo, I'll take you to the local diner for an ice cream/donut sandwich.

    Thanks SpiderThug.
    I did a little search on Wikipedia to see where I could find it in Canada.
    For others interested in finding Milo, this is what I found:

    Nestle has now introduced a Canadian version of Milo. It is made in Canada. It dissolves rapidly like Nesquik, probably due to market expectations, but still retains the malt flavour. It is also sweeter than other varieties. This Milo as the brand has been in in Eastern Canada since the late 1970's with the influx of people from previous previous British colonial territories such as the Caribbean and Hong Kong, and India. It was available in mostly small ethnic grocery stores, especially Caribbean food stores. It has recently been selling at larger chains to beef up their share in the ethnic market in Canada, and are now available in places like Superstore, Extra Foods and London Drugs. Some East Asian supermarkets (such as T&T Supermarket in Edmonton, Vancouver, Toronto and Calgary) will carry the version imported from China or Hong Kong.
