Whenever you ask someone what they like to pair milk with, the answers usually are a range of sweet stuff like cookies, pies, cakes, and more. I know in my household, my daughter’s usual lunch is a PB&J sandwich, topped off with a tall, delicious glass of cold milk. For myself, memories of eating alfajores (Peruvian cookies) while drinking milk and watching El Chavo Del Ocho with my grandparents come flooding back anytime I think about enjoying milk. But, as it turns out, you can pair milk with so much more than just sweets!
I visited a Vallarta Supermarket recently, where there was a fun El Chavo y Toma Leche event going on.
Vallarta is a busy supermarket, so people were constantly stopping by and experiencing what it was like to pair a Torta de Jamon with a cold glass of milk. Most people were pretty amazed and surprised at how well a savory snack went with milk. After they tasted the pairing, they got a chance to take a photo in front of the standee with characters from El Chavo Del Ocho for a chance to win $200!
Beginning August 15 through September 11, Toma leche and El Chavo are giving you the opportunity to win a book bag full of back-to-school goodies – plus a $200 gift card! To participate, visit your local supermarket, take a picture in El Chavo’s barrel sampling his famous ham sandwich with milk and submit your picture using #ElChavoyLeche. You can find a participating store by visiting tomaleche.com.
The event was a lot of fun, and people were enjoying the torta and leche pairing. Kids were discovering a new way to enjoy milk, as well as a great kids show that most Latinos my age grew up with. More Toma Leche memories, El Chavo and yumminess for the next generation to remember!
