Delicious Ovaltine is an international cocoa drink that’s a big hit in the Philippines. Tracing its origin from Switzerland, Ovaltine has now captured the world’s taste with its rich and awesome flavor. Did you know that Ovaltine has been around for 100 years? That’s right! From Switzerland, it has been exported to Britain in 1909, then the United States, then the rest of the world.
During its early years of production, Ovaltine has been a partner of European countries to help sustain and improve the health of many. It was employed as a health supplement in the early 1900s especially among the malnourished, pregnant women, breast feeding women, the frail and the sick. Doctors recommend a glass of milk with Ovaltine for it provides an additional 20 percent of the daily requirement of vitamins A, C, B6 and B12 and 25% more of the daily calcium, zinc and magnesium kids need. Also, a Study from a group of scientists recently found out that Ovaltine is one of the most effective drinks that help athletes recover after a vigorous performance.
Do you remember peering inside the neighborhood’s sari-sari store when you were young? Moms would often send us there to buy chocolate drink mixes and we would instantly see that brand in orange foil packets, wouldn’t we? We all have bought Ovaltine in that classic orange wrapping and we loved it. I remember enjoying this chocolate drink cold and with ice, it was so refreshing and energizing I drank it every time we played “entrance”, “shatong” and tag. I always felt energized and ready to run around like crazy. Now after so many years, I’m still a fan of Ovaltine, I have it for breakfast every time I can.
