People are Mixing Milk and Coke, and We’re on the Fence

“Milk Coke” is truly a thing. If, like a large majority of the nation, you’re scratching your head and saying, “Huh?” then you might be happy to know we were unclear too. After scouring the internet to see what the big deal was, we ended up traveling down a wormhole of online milk and coke weirdness. That’s not to say that ‘milk coke’ is weird, but even learning that it was an actual thing that people drink (and not just a small, select group of people, either) the whole concept still just seemed odd. So what is it?

People are drinking milk and coke (Coca-Cola) together, and they’ve aptly named it “Milk Coke.” That’s really all there is to it, but some are revolted, some are of the mindset, “To each their own,” and others are loving it. And so, the internet is conflicted.

Although, where this concept originated is still unclear, many have said that it’s been a big deal in parts of the U.S. for some time now. As Amber Sutton from It’s a Southern Thing put it most succinctly: “Some say it’s a classic beverage beloved in households for generations and even spotlighted on the 1970s’ TV show ‘Laverne and Shirley.’ Others believe it’s a concoction made purely to put people off their lunch.”

The thought process for those who are timidly questioning whether they’ve been missing out is “Is this like a coke float?” As with many a fad, trend, or even an online dare, one will never know unless they try it. If the very thought of mixing milk and coke together makes you wince, chances are good you won’t be able to stomach it. And, considering there’s no requirement to get onboard like it’s a life-affirming taste sensation (Hello? We’re in Texas, where mixing peanuts and coke was practically invented!) no one says you have to try it. In the meantime, Twitter is all abuzz about the concept, Facebook is lit up with shares on the matter, and we’re on the fence. We’re actually wondering how this might work with Dr Pepper.
