Ovaltine 阿華田 has been a household condiment, treat and traditions older than you and I. Originally named Ovomaltine, it was developed in Berne, Switzerland and later exported to Britain in 1909.
This brand of milk flavoring product made with malt extract (except the blue packaging in the US), sugar (except in Switzerland), cocoa, and whey. Ovaltine is a subsidiary of Twinings (the famous tea importers since 1706 which first introduced tea drinking to the English. Your popular office Earl Grey Tea should be from Twining… those the little yellow packets ring a bell?)
As famous and as Horlicks in Hong Kong, Ovaltine is commonly known as a café drink – hot or cold! I love to mix some Ovaltine in my milk to make things a little tastier and less boring. Today I discovered a delicious little treat at your local T&T supermarket. Ovaltine Malt Ice Cream.
Individually cup sized. These little guys taste just like the drink itself. It is not too sweet; it is creamy and very nostalgic! Somehow it reminds me of the Wendy’s malt but while sitting in a Hong Kong café someone in Central, Hong Kong… perhaps with a French toast on the side… I miss HK.
