My kids have been great to taste things for the blog, but they aren’t always great about the feedback. Usually, all I can get from them is a thumbs up or down. Yesterday, I had my 13 year old try some banana flavored milk I made. Our conversation went like this:
Me: What do you think? Is it good?
Me: Does it taste like banana flavored milk?
Him: That’s what it is, isn’t it?
Me: Well, yeah, but does it TASTE like it?
Him: Well, that’s what it is, isn’t it?
Anyway- while he isn’t helpful in the feedback department, and he’s turning into a total smart aleck, he did in fact drink an entire glass. I think banana flavored milk would go over really well in the toddler arena. The benefits: It doesn’t have any sugar added, like other flavored milks!
