Her sister was in home economy at the time and taught her family how to make this version. I believe it was located for a while on the back of Hersey’s Cocoa as well. I liked the fact the water, sugar, and salt where boiled first, then the milk added and finished off with vanilla and mish-mashs. (aka marshmallows) Mrs. Phyllis has the BEST growing up stories! Since I am such a rebel, I HAD to invent my own version and add Borden’s Creamer to make it creaming tasting there for teaching my 12 year old son my secret. Now he has mom’s secret the household wants to know and has tried to weasel out of him. ;o) LikeLiked by 1 person Reply What a wonderful story!
