Another man's poison...

What's creamy-coloured, thick, tastes really yucky and comes in a bottle? Give up? Cod-liver oil. You ever eaten it? I for one have, and I know many of my cousins have as well when we were still growing up. And I just couldn't stand the taste then, or now. I still remember that there used to be a similar thing called Haliborange. Any of you remember that? Now, that was so much more pleasant and palatable than this yucky gooey liquid. I read that it's supposed to be good; prevents all sorts of diseases. A friend even told me it cured her of her rash when she was small! Amazing stuff this. If only it tasted better...

But that's just my (and a lot of people, I think!) tastebuds doing the talking. But, it looks like someone in my family absolutely loves it! No, not my wife, but my daughter Adelle! She takes it after dinner everyday, and as far as she's concerned, it may as well be honey from heaven. Yup, to her, it's lip-smacking, spoon-licking, don't-waste-a-drop-of-it yummy. Every time it's time to take it, she becomes excited, and starts saying "emulsion". I then pour it into a spoon and she insists on feeding herself. After that, she proceeds to lick every trace of it...

My wife and I are just amazed that she's taken such a liking to such a foul-tasting thing. But, as good parents we encourage her, and we'll keep encouraging her to keep taking it till perhaps one day, she discovers what probably millions others have - that it's just plain urrrggh!

But till then, here's to a healthy dose of the creamy goo!

Mmmm...this tastes so good! Seconds, please!

Ok, this may sound strange and slightly weird but I loved cod-liver oil and Haliborange when I was growing. I'd literally lick the spoon too ... LOL! So, kudos to your little girl and she is indeed adorable :D

I loved Haliborange and guess what, I still take Scotts Emulsion's (Orange) once in a while. I hate the 'original' one, though. You know, the white one. Yuck! Please tell me Adelle enjoys the orange Emulsion.
