Credit line
Milo is an essential part of many Kiwi childhoods. Whether you prefer your Milo cold or hot, with all milk, some milk, or all water, or simply eaten out of the tin, Milo has kept New Zealanders and Australians full of energy since 1934. This particular tin is likely to be from the 1960s, when Milo's tagline changed from being tonic food drink to simply tonic food.
