I knew I had to make this for the kids when I saw it on Expo Lounge. They didn’t appreciate it, though…
Mix chilled 7-Up and cold milk in equal parts, by pouring the 7-Up gently into the milk. Do not stir. The 7-Up adds a light and delicate flavor making a delicious blended food drink.
I have no idea what a “blended food drink” is really supposed to be. But that’s nothing compared to the rest of the ad:
Mothers know that this is a wholesome combination.
Now, I do have a pretty good idea of what wholesome is supposed to be: “conducive to bodily health.” That can apply to the milk, but the soda? Nuh-uh.
Anyway, this is (obviously) easy to make. Pour soda into milk. Make a kid drink it. Done!
The addition of 7-Up gives milk a new flavor appeal that especially pleases children.
The kids liked it, but when I asked if they wanted more, they requested the milk be left out. They weren’t “especially pleased.” Flavor-wise this is fairly mediocre, but their asinine claim that it’s wholesome is what disgusts me.
