Malt Star: an awesome soda with a surprising benefit for women who breastfeed

Yesterday I went to Little Tel Aviv, one of my favorite places to get Falafel in Minneapolis. If you live in the cities and haven't been there check them out. Super good falafel (Israeli so it's greener because of more parsley), their french fries are freaking awesome and the hot sauce rocks.

While there a soda caught my eye. It's called Malt Star. I asked what it tasted like and the owner dude said it was sweet. So when I ordered I was thinking it was gonna be a cola-ish thing.

At first sip I thought it was disgusting because it wasn't what I was thinking it would be. But once I was able to make the shift in my brain I actually loved it, and so did Staci. I can best explain it as the soda that Guinness would make if it made a soda. It has that bitter stout flavor with the a bit of sweetness. And although it doesn't taste it, it's non-alcoholic.

The guy also told us that it would be good for Staci once we have the kid, because it promotes milk production in women who breastfeed.

That's not something that i personally need to worry about.

I did the Wikipedia thing and learned more. It's basically a version of a drink called Malta, and many companies make versions. The only other ones I've seen are Goya Malta and Kinderbier.
