When I was drinking Organic Valley Vanilla Soy Milk I had to keep looking in my cup to make sure I was acutally drinking soy milk and not sipping liquified chalk.
And yet, the taste was totally nostalgic. Bear with me.
|How's it goin'?|
I am an Old Kid, and back in my day you young hoodlum we had a medicine called Kaopectate. You may have heard of it. You may have even seen it on the shelves of your favorite drugstore or supermarket. But the Kaopectate of today is not the Kaopectate of my misspent youth. Back then, Kaopectate was made of clay.
You heard me. That's how it got the name - from the active ingredients. Kao = kaolin (a type of clay) and pectate = pectin. I guess the idea was to get you to eat a load of clay to soak up the extra buttjuice. They also used to put some kinds of flavoring in there, too, so it wouldn't taste so clayish.
I still remember the flavor of Kaopectate's original formula. And when I drank that Organic Valley Vanilla Soy Milk, I was hit with a wave of nostalgia, because the soy milk tastes 100% exactly like old school Kaopectate.
