When I was growing up my family didn't have much money and I think I internalized pretty early on the habit of not asking for extra things when we'd get to go out for a cool treat on a random Summer night. Consequently I never really got a taste for sweetened condensed milk. Curiosity on the topic was set aside, filed under "Sour Grapes" (sub-category "Gilding The Lily").
Then one fine trip back home, Jessica and I stopped at Sal's and on a whim I got an Orchid Vanilla instead of my usual Cherry. High on this whim I decided to push further. "With sweetened condensed milk."
If you typically order this topping, you know what happened next. If you've never tried it, I highly recommend you do. It's creamy. It's sweet. It's smoooth. It's five kinds of not good for you and it's definitely not something that should be a large part of anyone's diet.
But wooo, damn!
