Twitter calls this ingredient the new best way to enjoy a refreshing glass of Coke. The jury’s still out.
Twitter is the Internet’s home for all sorts of twisted trends, starting with consuming toxic Tide Pods (which we shouldn’t even have to say is a terrible idea) and ending with—well, this. The latest edible experiment to grace your timeline is the cause of sitewide debate. Coke with milk—yes, milk—is taking over the internet.
Are you brave enough to give it a try?
How Did This Happen?
We have comedy writer James Felton to thank for introducing milk and Coke, appropriately dubbed Milk Coke, to the Internet. “Milk Coke is a real thing,” says Felton, posing proudly with this creamy concoction.
Milk coke is a real thing. Brummies love it. We can all move on from this discussion now, I will be taking no further questions. pic.twitter.com/dQR8bg3UAO

Since the tweet went live, Twitter has lost its mind, full-on warring over whether the combination is a dream or a disaster. (We can’t blame them, since we’re sort of warring with ourselves about it.) Some people are loving the idea of Milk Coke, comparing it to a Coke float.
Don’t you hate that feeling when you open a can of coke and only then do you realise you’ve got no milk to put in it

What do you pour first? The milk or the coke? pic.twitter.com/SxjbV7blwO

While there are supporters, others are understandably repulsed by the concept. Mixing soda and ice cream is old news, but there’s something a little bit weird (but oddly intriguing) about this newer combo. What makes it so different from a standard Coke or root beer float? We honestly don’t know.
I’m sorry… If you drink “milk coke”, we can’t be friends 🤢🤮 https://t.co/3YsbkmNGmi

Both sides represent pretty grounded arguments, which has left the Internet in turmoil. Felton, the inventor of Milk Coke, has caught plenty of flack and publicity thanks to his creation. Several news outlets have called Felton out, claiming Milk Coke is just a joke intended to be funny, but Felton is adamant that this is a real thing he actually enjoys.
We’re not sure if we’ll be adding this ingredient to a perfectly good Coke, but we’re not totally opposed to at least giving it a try. Who knows? This could open doors for all kinds of cola concoctions. Sounds like it’s time for an official Taste of Home taste test!
