Why would you muck around with something so iconic , Have not tried it yet myself but seems there are a few peeved off people and not really a good PR result for Nestle

Like cat food. "New improved flavour"  Who tests this stuff, and unless it tastes like mouse or sparrow why would your cat want to change?? :-)

I stopped drinking Milo the last time they changed something making it weaker in the process. They have no reason to change it so why should they? Honestly, changing a Kiwi Icon will never go down well.

Exactly. Nestle is a Swiss company with some pretty questionable business ethics. I haven't bought any of their products for years.

Well that's how I was bought up anyway. We used to have a stronger recipe than most others.

Ibell was motivated to act after her three year old child refused to drink the new formula.

Im sure you can find better things to feed a 3 year old.

Also it's rather funny how their marketing department likes to portray or think people buy this for any form of nutritional value. And as per usual the sugar component is marketed as "helping kids perform their best" and other crap.

It is It was a chocolatey/malty sugary drink that people drink hot and cold because of its classic taste.

Nestle getting into trouble in India with their Maggi noodles as well.
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/06/nestle-india-pull-noodles-shops-lead-scare-150605020733369.html

Seems they may have lead in their noodles.
Perhaps this is one of the extra 'vitamins' they have added to Milo?
