Being sick as a kid was awesome. I don’t mean those times you were stuck in bed and full of aches, but those times you were too sick to go to school but not sick enough to have to be confined to your room. When you got to hang out, watch cartoons and of course, The Price is Right, and your food was hand delivered while you played. Plus, no pills to swallow. Instead you got Banana Medicine. You know what I am talking about. The bright yellow candy-like treat that you either loved or hated. I think it’s clear where I stood when it came to the antibiotics.
Well, I am soon to be 25 years old and I have long since passed the days of Banana Medicine. Luckily, there is still banana flavoring to satisfy those banana medicine woes and since its not medicine, you can drink (or eat) a whole lot of it. Which I did when I went to Chatime with some friends not too long ago.
It was one of two Milk Teas I got since I can never make up my mind when I hit up this popular tea spot. I ordered a regular Banana Milk Tea, cold, with pearls, little ice, and no sugar. I don’t usually take my tea with sugar so that’s my go-to but even for those who do like sugar in their tea, it isn’t necessary here. The creamy concoction is a whole lotta sweet and a whole lotta yum. It is by no means natural tasting but sometimes that is what you want.
Each time I get this, it is a dose of nostalgia bringing me back to the artificial deliciousness that always made me feel better as a kid.
