The hashtag "Milk Coke" has been trending online. And people are coming out of the woodwork to say that yes, they enjoy a little Milk Coke every now and then.
We've a few people claim it's kind of like a root beer float . . . or more accurately, a Coke float, where you pour it over vanilla ice cream. And when you think of it that way, it's not quite as gross.
This isn't a new idea though. Diners have been serving a similar drink called an "egg cream" for over 50 years. And candy shops in New York selling them as far back as the early 1900s.
Also, the TV show"Laverne & Shirley"had a running in the '70s about how Laverne's favorite drink was milk-and-Pepsi . . . because it actressPenny Marshall's favorite drink in real life. (There's a milk-and-Pepsi scene at 19:50 here.)
