If you’re looking for new food and drink ideas the internet is a fantastic place to find them, but you’ll probably wish you hadn’t stumbled upon this one – milk coke. It’s the new beverage everyone on Twitter is downing and it’s sparked a lot of debate.

Milk coke is exactly that, simply mix one part milk together with two parts Coca-Cola. Apparently it’s a thing in Birmingham, claimed comedy writer James Felton, and there are lots of variations. Use condensed milk, whole milk, or for the dairy-free people out there, almond or soy milk. If you’re feeling particularly daring, change up the Coca-Cola for fruit-based Vimto or Ribena with milk, instead of water.
The delicious (or possibly vile) concoction has completely divided the internet. It’s basically a coke float, which is made with vanilla ice cream. It should be wrong but somehow it’s right?
Some people swear by a lovely glass of milk coke, topped off with ice.
Milk coke is a real thing. Brummies love it. We can all move on from this discussion now, I will be taking no further questions. pic.twitter.com/dQR8bg3UAO

It’s weird to me that #milkcoke isn’t common knowledge. My parents introduced us to Soda/milk combo when I was like 4 – so 24 years ago give or take. At the times was called “Bop” or a “Brown Cow” and yes if done correctly it was amazing.

But others weren’t so keen…
sorry but drinking a coke float instead of milk coke does not make you any less morally depraved

The mixed reviews only mean one thing – you’ll need to try it for yourself.
