Milo has been an all-time favorite for most Filipinos, in fact it has been the leading beverage brand for more than 50 years. Having a glass brings me back to my childhood when everything was simple and uncomplicated. I love it ice cold! When my little man is ready to have his very first Milo glass, I will be ready to share the fun experience with him.
The delicious combination of malted barley, sugar, cocoa, malted barley, milk powder create MILO’s distinct Chocomaltee flavor, and what makes it even more special is the addition of the goodness of ACTIGEN-E, a unique combination of vitamins and minerals to help optimize release of sustained energy from food. Children will surely love the goodness of the Chocomaltee taste from a glass of MILO that gives them the energy essential in an active lifestyle. And it is the perfect thirst-quencher this season, to beat the summer heat!
