Naxet, I read that book several times when I was a kid and ALWAYS! wondered what an egg cream was! She was addicted!
Back to subject: when my kids were little I brought Ovaltine home and they hated it. I could go for either Nestles or Ovaltine but majority rules in my house. Personally I prefer the hershey’s syrup in the can, or now in the squeeze bottle. It mixes better; doesn’t leave that nasty pile of sugar on the bottom of the glass.
My youngest (high-functioning autistic) can get into a groove where he LOVES the Nestle’s Strawberry. He was sent to a juvenile facility when he was about 14 (for something soooo stupid!) and we were allowed to visit 5 times a week. We could bring a snack, but purchased, not homemade. He requested a bottle of Nestle’s Strawberry Milk everytime.[;)]
