Something that sounds excruciatingly good is strawberry in fresh cold milk, crushed with a spoon and eaten slowly. This was brought upon by a post I saw on this blog that seems to be a popular tradition in Japan. It just seems like a great idea, and I can’t wait to try it. Just imagining how it would taste is making me grin uncontrollably.

“A variation on ichigo miruku was served at one of my friend’s houses: strawberries with condensed milk. This was so soul-shakingly sweet, that I craved it. Never would my mother have allowed this – I don’t think she ever even allowed condensed milk into the house. The syrupy-ness of the condensed milk was a perfect foil to me to the tart strawberries. The resulting sugar-high afterglow was quite interesting too.”
