My favorite thing about Korea is that you never run out of new, interesting, often f'd up food products to try. Yesterday, we were in the Korean grocery store, so I immediately set out for the beverage cooler to see what kind of craziness I could find. This store had a limited inventory, and didn't have the most basic Korean beverages (OB, Soju, Let's Be, Grape Sac, etc). I did find a drink I'd never tried before, Milkis. Apparently this was a popular drink in Korea back in the early 90s. They've since revamped it, giving it "New feeling of soda beverage." Milkis is an interesting name, as I learned from reading the ingredients, it's due to the milk in the product. Since I've never drank soda-milk, I decided to pour just to see what it looks like. Just so happens that I have a collection of Hite glasses, appropriately sized for Milkis tasting. Basically it looks like cloudy orange juice...there's some fizz there from the "feeling of soda beverage", but it's hard to tell in the picture, due to all the milk.
Here's my taste test:
Jack really liked it:
This is what happens when you mix soda with milk:
