Greetings Will,

What do Milo, Horlicks & straight chicory taste like - coffeeish or ???

Milo is a malt-based beverage, that can be taken hot or cold. Cold it's popular amongst Australian children, and hot, it serves as a good alternative to hot caffeinated beverages. The thing it's closest to is Ovaltine, but it's a bit different.

Maitri,
Retro. :)

Thanks Retro, but I have tried my wife's Ovaltine and do not care for the malt flavor. So far the Cafix & Roma are delicious and when the Pero arrives I shall surely have enough pseudo-Postum to make it through our Icy Hell of a Winter. (it was 80 F today)
