Don’t we all love our choco beverages. Milo (pronounced mailo or meelo 🙂 )is perhaps the most popular and widely consumed in Ghana. But i have a little problem which makes it’s consumption a sort of do or
die affair for me. (ok maybe die is too strong a word).
I am in no way trying to undermine the efforts of this product, my problem extends to its competitors as well.
Often after a Milo (chocolate) drink, a feeling of nausea washes over me. it gets worse when i drink water.
While i haven’t exactly puked as a result of this, it does throw me off from wanting anymore. I love me some Milo nonetheless.
Is there an ingredient that causes me to feel this way or is it just my body reacting to it? at least i know about two more people who experience this as well.
Oh just a quick addition that might be of interest:
Milo contains some theobromine , a xanthine alkaloid similar to
caffeine which is present in the
cocoa used in the product; thus,
like chocolate, it can become
mildly addictive if consumed in
quantities of more than 15
heaped teaspoons per day. ”
I got that from http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milo_(drink) Wikipedia.
Im just saying…
So yeah, do you experience the same thing,have you overcome it,if so,how??

like i already mentioned, the feeling isn’t mutually exclusive to just Milo but also:
