An unusual drink pairing that has surfaced on Twitter is raising a couple of eyebrows.
Comedy writer James Felton shared this weird concoction of “milk Coke” on Twitter, informing followers that Coca-Cola with milk is a well-loved combo in Birmingham.
“Milk coke is a real thing. Brummies love it,” he tweeted. “We can all move on from this discussion now, I will be taking no further questions.”
Felton also shared images of himself drinking the mixture of Coca-Cola and milk, which left people feeling confused and disgusted.
A Twitter user wrote, “I am so unbelievably offended by ‘milk Coke’. I will try anything, but not that.”
Other social media users, however, claimed that this concoction isn’t something new—explaining that it is similar to a soda float.
One Twitter user tried to explain that there’s nothing weird with the drink, saying, “Do people not realize that this whole milk Coke debate is essentially just drinking an ice cream float? How are you appalled by this?”

Milk coke isn't a new thing, folks.— Virtua Dennis (@PsychTyson) March 7, 2019
Milk & coke has BEEN a thing for like 50+ years. Nothing new about this.— Dina (@BionicVox) March 6, 2019
It’s weird to me that #milkcoke isn’t common knowledge. My parents introduced us to Soda/milk combo when I was like 4 - so 24 years ago give or take. At the times was called “Bop” or a “Brown Cow” and yes if done correctly it was amazing.— Bucs Fan in Japan (@johnallaire128) March 5, 2019
