Some new flavors from Hershey and Nesquik recently hit our area. The Hershey's are the best! Whoppers candy flavor and Hershey Kisses, caramel flavor. I suggest trying both!

Also, Nesquik just came out with Smores, which is OK. And Vanilla Caramel, which is also OK. Doesn't touch Hershey though.

Before you down another one of those, check the calories.

I was floored when I did one day.

Even BevNET remarks that the calories are "outrageous".

They pack anywhere from 600 to 800 calories.

So if you've get an unbelievable metabolism, have at it!

I must say, however, that they're absolutely delicious. ;)

(Zabe always talks about "guilty pleasures". Here they are.)

Guilty and they make you look bigger than a cow.LOL

Coke has a milk product (not Yooho) that has not made it to Chi Town yet. Has anyone seen it or tried it? I was hooked on Yo oho for a long time. I used to buy 2 ice cold bottles when I took the train to work. LOL

Once and a while (guilty pleasure) I will buy some when they go on sale. YUM Nice buzz indeed.

I heard a couple yrs ago (?) that coke was getting in to the milk products market, something like 'Project Mother'. Last I heard, it was taking place around New York. I haven't heard anything lately about it. Did it get off the ground?

Zabe, funny you mention Yoo-Hoo. I was 'addicted' to it too back years ago. I accumulated a lot of Hoo items back then. I haven't had a Hoo in a while now.. Yoo-Hoo used to have these pics of mine on their site a couples years ago..

You know I heard that it did go into test markets at a few selected middle schools. Coke was encouraged LOL to get rid of high surgar and caffeine drinks (soda pops). I heard this a few months ago. I would like to see this go mass market to force the price of the current products to decrees. A bottle of 16.9 Yooho costs around $1.25 to $1.65.

Well, thank you. Yea, that's me. I actually had way more Yoo-hoo stuff.. but so much of it is boxed up, I only could get to those few items. It is a good product, but like you said, it's way too pricy now. A few years ago, the 16 oz. was like .79 here. Now, it's about $1.25. That's crazy.

Well said. Gee there was nothing like a frosted Hostes fudge brownie and an ice cold Yooho. smile.gif The total cost was only 95 cents. LOL

I was a real junkie during my highscool years.LOL

I got a question, in the early 1990's when I was about 7 or 8 during the summer, my mom and I would walk down to this little store, and I'd get a chocolate drink similar to Yoo Hoo, but it wasn't Yoo Hoo. It was something like 'chocolate brownie' and it had a small silloute of a girl that looked like she was dressed like a Girl Scout Brownie on the label. I don't think I've seen this stuff since 1993-ish.

Gee, you got me. LOL
Maybe a local dairy sold it locally?
At age 7 or 8 you may not recall but was it
chocolate milk or a chocolate drink?

Either way was it a good buzz? LOL

Right, there was Brownie, which I haven't seen in years. Then, there's Chocolate Soldier. Has a little soldier dude on the can\bottle. It's still available around here.

They still sell Yoo-Hoo chocolate syrup. I get it at a grocery store in Brunswick, Maryland. (SuperFresh).

Chocolate Soilder seems to be only be at Dollar General out here, and it was kinda watery the one time I had it.

Coca-Cola, here in Mexico, released in 2002 a line of flavored milks in partnership with Disney called: Mickey Aventuras (adventures), and later was renamed Disney Aventuras, there was three flavors: Chocolate, Strawberry and Chocolate-Banana, but the product was not succesful, and as a result, discontinued.

i have tried every nesquik flavor to date minus vanilla caramel. im a huge fan of the chocolate flavor and banana flavor. however, the s'mores flavor caused the old gag reflex. im not sure how they expected to mimic the taste of chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers in milk, but it tasted like overly syrupy graham cracker milk. yuck.


i think the double chocolate flavor is a bit much as well.


is there nesquik in a can? that would be beautiful

I'm so old I used to drink what I think were called Chocolas... No dairy in them, and I am sure they were high in saturated fats. We didn't know any better. It'd separate, and the brown stuff (it certainly was NOT natural) would go to the bottom.

Do they still make banana Quik (yeah, I still call it "Quik"--I'm stubborn that way) in the bottles? I loved that stuff when I was in high school.

I think they made it in the powder for a while when I was growing up, but I haven't seen it in a while.

While I'm on the subject, I think when Quik was in the cardboard boxes with the metal tops it tasted 10 times better than it does today in the plastic. Just me?

I still have a plastic Quik box (empty) in my possession of the short lived Cookies and Cream flavor from 1997.

No, it's not just you. Nesquik must have most of the product money spent on the....packaging. IMHO, at least. Anyone remember Bosco chocolate flavored syrup that was added to milk? Icky stuff. But not quite as bad as Ovaltine.....or at least the American version of Ovaltine....European Ovaltine is great, but I can only find it in the US from Vermont Country Store.

Yeah, its like a double edged sword, b/c the plasitc is easier to open (I remember when my mom would buy it for me when I was really little I remember her having to pry the round top open with a butter knife) , and if you were feeling adventurious you could keep stuff in the yellow plastic boxes, but it took away from the flavor.

I'm still ticked that its called NESQUIK now. I liked calling it Quik. There was a Nesquik cereal for a while in the late 1990's/early 2000's, but I think it went away a couple of years ago. And in the mid 1990's there was a quik taffy too.

Yea, I love Quik too. Loved the old tin tops that you popped off with the spoon! I remember as a kid, my grandmother bought the Hershey's mix, in the yellow can, with the kid on it.

I guess these great memories is what drove me to collect as many different of these tins that I could find. I have several dozen from Quik, Nestle's, Borden's, and Hershey's. All from the 50's to the 80's. Great stuff. Great Memories.
