Naxet 76, my oldest son used to love strawberry Quik, until an unfortunate episode of carsickness. My daughter’s nine-year-old friend will only drink milk if it’s pink (strawberry Quik), even on her cereal! Everyone else looks at it in horrified fascination. I wonder if she has noticed the difference that you mentioned. I have one of those huge cannisters of original chocolate Quik. Maybe I’ll buy a new cannister before the old one it totally empty for comparison.
