Ovaltine or Nestle Quick?

I was a Nestle Quick drinker my whole life, then a couple of years ago I decided to go ahead and try the famed Ovaltine product a la A Christmas Story....and I'm hooked. I think what really caught my eye was the fact that it claims to have more vitamins, etc. than Quick; I haven't compared them but I'm happy with Ovaltine enough to not even bother checking their claim.
And I don't know about ya'll, but only I can make my own drink. I never liked it when someone else mixed it for me, I always thought it was gross.

    Ovaltine........ on vanilla ice cream. Always a jar of ovaltine in the house. I've even been known to scoop a spoonful and eat it neat.

    Me either annpeeples. Not sure I'd like it as it is a chocolate malt. I'm not a fan of malted anything.

    well, there's two types of Ovaltine: chocalate malt and chocolate.
    I can't stand malt either so of course I just go for regular chocolate. NaaMikey, please tell me, I'm from south Texas home of sweet iced tea, but what is an egg cream and how do you make it? when I was young I read Harriet the Spy and she always drank those. Oh and I've never seen Fox's UBet around here; I have seen Bosco's or some brand like that.

    I can only drink Ovaltine hot, but my children loved it sprinkled on ice cream. I drink Nestles quick cold.

    An egg cream is Fox's U-bet syrup mixed into a glass of milk and then you add seltzer to it! You can you use any chocolate syrup, but Fox's is the original.

    I like the Ovaltine chocolate malt flavor the best.

    And naxet76 you can probably find U-bet chocolate syrup if you have a Walmart supercenter near you. Ask if they have a Kosher food section. They have it here in OK.

    Well, check your labels. Ovaltine definately more nutritious. Dried blood, perhaps? (No complaints, here..)

    I always drank the Nestle Quik when I was growing up. I still like it better than Ovaltine, but for some reason after drinking a glass of Nestle Quik I always feel like I just finished a Thanksgiving dinner. It bloats or fills me up for some reason.

    After trying both I like Hershey's syrup best. It's what I grew up with. I always have it on hand for pouring on ice cream.

    My Gran used to give me gallons of Ovaltine as a child. I was sickly and she thought she'd beef me up. I am now a running back for the Packers...

    I grew up on Nestlés Quick. The only malt I remember was chocolate malted ice cream bars. Yum!

    One night I was watching Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery where people were drinking Horlick's (no comment's PLEASE - I've heard them all) which was a malt drink that British children (and soldiers drank). Next day I tracked it down at the supermarket - not next to the Marmite but close.

    I am now a devoted malt fan - Ovaltine, Horlicks etc. And yes, I do put it on ice cream like enginecapt. Try it with the chocolate Ovaltine - excellent!

    It was both of them when I grew up, with Quick drank 3-1. It has been Ovaltine for some time. Whether it is the regular or malt flavor does not matter as I have a jar of malt that I can add. There is chocolate syrup and I can mix some or all together for my milkshakes.

    When it comes to chocolate milk, it seems that the best and richest type is in the cartons next to the regular stuff.

    Nesquik had just started advertising that they have 25% less sugar than other leading powders and syrups (presumably Ovaltine and Hersheys?). I don't know whether this is just a comparison to counter Ovaltine's more-vitamins claim, or whether they have reformulated Quik. But this thread prompted me to email the company and ask! I'll let you know the reply. (We've never tried Ovaltine but my kids enjoy ridiculing their commercials!)

    I prefer Quik, but with a catch. I put in half what they call for, then add a packet of Equal to balance the sweetness level so it tastes just right for me.

    yeah, I've seen those commercials, too. I was thinking the same thing, they probably don't have the same vitamins as Ovaltine so they're using the "less sugar" tactic. I don't mind Quick but I totally prefer Ovaltine now--despite their silly commercials!

    Here's the response:

    March 30, 2007


    Dear Nestlé Consumer,

    Thank you for taking the time to contact us about Nestlé® Nesquik®. We welcome questions and comments from loyal consumers such as yourself and appreciate this opportunity to assist you.

    Nestlé Nesquik developed a new proprietary break-through manufacturing process that allows the delivery of great Nesquik taste with 25% less sugar! Extensive research and taste tests were performed in which Nesquik 25% was overwhelmingly chosen as the best tasting product. 88% of Nesquik consumers who tried the product said that the sweetness was "just right". Nesquik is still fortified to provide 33% more calcium than milk alone, is 99.9% caffeine free, and is also a source of Vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals to help build strong bones.

    This reformulation caused the density (weight) of the product to change. It is now lighter in weight; however, the serving size and amount of servings per package have not changed. Additionally, there is a noticeable color difference in the strawberry flavor. When mixed with milk, it will have the same great appearance. The new formulation does not contain any artificial sweeteners and also improves the solubility so that Nesquik now dissolves more easily into milk.

    At Nestlé, we are dedicated to you and your family throughout every phase of your lives. Your feedback is valuable to us, as it helps us to improve our products and services. We will report your comments to our Marketing personnel.

    We appreciate your interest in our products and hope you will visit our website often for the latest information on our products and promotions.

    Sincerely,
    Jennifer Romano
    Consumer Response Supervisor

    I'm with the capt. on this one--definitely the Ovaltine on the ice cream is yummy, but I LOVE it straight out of the jar as well, maybe preferred! (that powdery chocolately goodness half choking you, OK, maybe my spoon is too big, whatever, rock on ovaltine lovers).

    Ovaltine...accept no substitutes. Plus those Ovaltine jars come in handy for a variety of uses after you have used the product.

    We always have a can of Ovaltine in the kitchen. I prefer it over Quik as the Ovaltine tastes richer and more chocolatey to me. I make cocoa with it, sprinkle it on ice cream and sometimes sprinkle it over peanut butter. My SO calls it a "candy sandwich."

    QUIK and BOSCO! Quik was the main ingredient in the home-made hot fudge sauce that was on my 'chore list' to make each week. My parents loved it on their ice cream that was a Sunday treat in our home for years. I would melt some butter, add QUIK and a little water and heat it up. Mother had a 'gravy boat' set aside for the sauce when I finished my 'cooking'. Any leftovers after treat-topping would be spooned onto graham crackers and refrigerated for school lunchbox snacks.

    BOSCO was ever-present also, but I never had the craving for it that I developed for that buttery fudge sauce that was QUIK !

    Hershey's syrup in the can, seems to me, to be more thick and "dark chocolatey" tasting than the stuff in the plastic bottle.

    I happen to have orignal and less sugar strawberry Quick and there is a difference in the color. The original has a darker pink color to it and a more intense strawberry smell. The less sugar one is way more pale. As for taste....i'm not a fan of any kind of milk except chocolate milk, so sorry. (i'm peculiar like that) i only drink milk when mixed with chocolate or in my cereal.

    Ovaltine. The original "less sugar" version is sold in the Vermont Country Store catalog.
