This may sound gross to most people but if you try it, I'm sure that you'll love it.

To get me to drink more milk, my mom concocted this: Break up thin pretzels in a tall glass, add two teaspoons of sugar, one teaspoon of vanilla extract and fill with milk. Eat the pretzels with a spoon and drink the milk. The pretzels tasted better when they got soggy and it was soooooo goooooood.

To this day, when I'm in a sour mood, I make moms "pretzels in milk".

Yes it does sound gross. I love milk so that makes it worse for me. Wasn't Nestle Quik around when you were a kid?

Gator, to this day, I still can't drink a glass of milk, it just grosses me out. I love milk on cereal and in my coffee though.

Fig Newtons. One of the few memories I have of my grandfather is eating Fig Newtons and watching TV, and laughing.

When my parents often weren't around, my aunt would take my sister and me to the park and I always made the same snack to eat on the way there. It was a sandwich with nothing but honey between the two slices of bread. It was awfully sticky and sweet - just how I liked it! :D Not so much anymore lol
