Am I The Only One Who Puts This On My Ice Cream?
There's no wrong way to eat ice cream. With chocolate syrup, topped by peanuts, mixed with fruit... it's literally all good. However, every time I top my ice cream with my favorite topping I get weird looks from my wife.
Powdered Nestle Quik is a cheat code for ice cream. It looks like I just dumped a bunch of cinnamon into my ice cream but I assure you it is wonderful, delicious chocolate.
It's a bit powdery until you get used to it. The key is the way the flavors mix in your mouth, with the ice cream melting into a chocolate milk-type flavor experience. At the end of the bowl of ice cream you end up with a delicious paste-like chocolate treat, as opposed to the chocolate syrup's insistence on sticking entirely to the bowl.
My grandpa swore by Nestle Quik on, well, pretty much everything. He would fill a glass half-full with milk, then dump roughly 1/4th of a can of Quik in there and stir it until it reached a paste-like consistency. He literally had to eat it with a spoon.
I don't go that far, just a little sprinkle of the sweet stuff is enough to get me through my day. At this age I don't think I could handle all that sugar doing it my grandpa's way.
So, fellow Minnesotans I ask you whether or not this topping is strange. I beg my fellow Quik consumers to rise up and tell me you are on my side. Please, join my Quik gang and help me spread the chocolate gospel.
