Chocolate pudding topped with whipped cream / "Milky" (GF)
His profile almost went on fire from the amount of comments and likes Israeli people gave.
The noise was about one product, a chocolate pudding like thing topped with whipped cream. It is indeed sold here in supermarkets, doesn't taste all that good if you ask me (though no one really does).
In Israel there is a similar product called "Milky". If you are an Israeli or have ever been there for a visit you gonna know what I am talking about.
"Milky" is the all time favorite, the pudding that never dies.
It is probably the most sold chocolate pudding in Israel, favorite on almost every kid there.
But in Israel, this product is sold far more expensive than here in Germany.
So this guy's post started the "Milky protest", floods of complaints about how expensive Israel is to live in and how Germany is so cheap.
Well, the grass over there, wherever "there" may be, is always greener, right?
True, food is not so expensive here, but as you all know food is not the only expense we all have.
What we spend on health insurance here, which is obligatory, not a private fancy one, is 368.94 Euro a month. Yes, you got that right.
This is approx. a fourth of our income. When my husband was employed and not self employed we paid half of that. Gees, thanks.
We pay 25% income tax and we belong to the "lucky" ones because we have a child. Single people pay more than 40% of their income as tax.
These are just examples.
Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining about how life is expensive here, my only point is that there is no perfect place. Well, perhaps Finland, but who wants to live 6 months in darkness?
It's true, there are things that we don't pay for, like kindergarten, higher education, but it is definitely not cheap to live here.
But hurray, I can buy a chocolate pudding for 87 cents,
The "Milky protest" made me laugh. It's so easy to think that somewhere else is better.
It's not, there are good things and difficult things everywhere.
I dedicate this post to all the "Milky" lovers around the globe. May we all be rich.
3 egg yolks
7tbsp date honey syrup/silan (available in oriental shops and health food shops)
1.5 cups milk
2tbsp cocoa powder
For the whipped cream:
2tbsp date honey syrup/silan
In a small sauce pan put milk and cocoa powder and bring to the verge of boiling.
Drizzle the hot milk on the egg yolks while whisking. If you don't whisk your egg yolks will get hard from the warm milk.
Pour the liquid back to the sauce pan and return to the heat. Mix with a whisk on low heat till the mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and mix the butter in.
Pour into bowls or small jars. Let the chocolate pudding completely cool before putting the whipped cream on it.
Whip the cream together with the silan till very thick (but not too thick, of course).
Pipe it or lay carefully using a tablespoon on top of the chocolate pudding.
