Being a RI born native, spending all 38 of my years living here I have a CPL issues with this post... First coffee milk is not a breakfast staple in RI more of a state drink that is actually more associated with another RI only staple, hot weiners! Ask any one born here and they will tell you that hot weiners ( a hot dog w an awesome meat sauce mustard onions and celery salt ... Known as " all the way" on a steamed bun) is accompanied by a giant styrofoam cups of coffee milk bought w them. And is more of a late night get out of the club need food kind of meal then a breakfast staple. We have so many other amazing breakfast foods here that are actually food then drink ie Johnny cakes. Coffee milk is a drink enjoyed any time in RI w any meal by most kids who grew up here. So my review is only three stars because I feel had the writer done a little bit of research on RI it would of been clear that this is a "staple drink" in RI not a breakfast food.1Replies 1
This is great! I remember when I was a little girl spending summers at my aunt and uncles cottage in Indiana, and this reminds me of how my uncle always took his coffee. It was like 2 tbsp of coffee and the rest milk. We always thought it was funny that he even called it coffee. Thanks ~Laury~ for bringing back the memories.Reply
