the meirts of Fanmilk/FanIce
**Disclaimer*** "FanMilk" and "FanIce" will be used interchangeably
I heard about Fan Milk/FanIce before coming to Benin and it sparked my curiosity. When I arrived, I found it was an Africa Mercy buzzword. Everyone boasted of it merits. My curiosity was further ignited.
And then, it happened.
I was sitting in the cafeteria, clean and in my sweatpants, after a hard game of ultimate Frisbee. I had just enjoyed a homemade piece of pizza (yes, pizza :) at a frisbee afterglowish meal. I was happy. I was content. I didn't things could get much better when suddenly my friend Sarah exclaimed, "I think they are selling Fanmilk in the ship shop now." She went and purchased chocolate Fanmilks for the entire table.
All it took was one mouthful and I realized all the rumors were true. Fanmilk really was amazing.
So what is it actually? It's Ice Cream in a perfect sized, 30 cent plastic pouch. You bite off a corner and consume.
The Fan Milk website says this,
"When you say FanIce, everyone knows you are talking about the creamiest and most delicious ice cream in town! FanIce comes in three scrumptious flavours - Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla.Anytime of day, when you are on the go and you find yourself craving for some ice cream, you can have the flavour of your choice in a 150ml cup or pouch for the road! For now, the pouch comes in Vanilla only. If perhaps, you want to enjoy some delicious ice cream with your family, the 2-liter pack is available. For your small social gatherings, we have a special 5-liter pack for you! FanIce, so nice!!!"
FanIce, so nice!! I couldn't say it any better.
