Why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round, the jar is round... They should call it "Roundtine."

Ovaltine + Powder Creamer + Coffee = Poor Man's Mocha

I love it.

Ovaltine sucks.

Holy crap, Quik. I haven't had (or even seen) that stuff in probably twenty years. I could never get it to mix into the milk enough for there to not be clods floating at the top.

Some things are worth the extra two bucks.

Chocolate is one of those things.

I remember it very unfondly. Nothing worse than thinking you are having hot chocolate & then finding out it is ovaltine. Yuck.

We did more Tang than Ovaltine. I think Ovaltine was too expensive and we didn't get it very often. We had Tang quite often though. Poor man's orange juice.
