The Milo Recipe Changed And People Are Mad

"Yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk!!!!!"

"We've made a small change to our NZ recipe in order to focus on the four primary ingredients that make up Milo which are milk powder, malt barley, sugar & cocoa," a spokesperson wrote on the Milo Australia & New Zealand Facebook page.

However, the change won't affect the Australian recipe, which didn't have the vanilla flavouring to begin with.

Although the Australian recipe has been altered, it is a vitamin adjustment that should leave the taste unchanged, according to Nestle, the company who make Milo.

"Our Australian recipe has had a small change to the vitamins without changing the great taste Aussies know and love," the spokesperson wrote on Facebook.

Despite efforts to label the removal of vanilla flavouring as a "small change", consumers have hit back at Milo online, labelling the new recipe "terrible", "crap", and "yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk yuk".


A Facebook page titled "Change Milo back to the old recipe" has been liked by almost 4,000 people in the past week.
