Breakfast Sludge

So browsing the internets today, I found this odd infopic relating to a breakfast creation known as Breakfast Sludge. What's breakfast sludge, you might ask? Well, to save you the trouble of reading through the infopic, it is more or less cereal, followed by coffee, tea, sugar and hot chocolate.

... what?

Take cereal, put in mucho instant coffee, mucho hot chocolate, mucho sugar, teabag, milk, hot water.

Making it is very simple, provided you have the materials. I had a little trouble getting it all to dissolve in the water: even after several minutes of constant stirring, it still has small lumps. I could not get my hands on an appropriate cereal, sadly.

But what flavor! The breakfast sludge does not taste like coffee, hot chocolate, tea, nor milk: instead, it has a unique, delicious taste, like... tea with coffee. The hot chocolate is not as noticeable; however, I think I may have made it a tad strong on the coffee. It's ridiculously smooth (probably not so with additional bulk!) and very strong, not just from coffee but from its unique flavor.

This sludge is pretty damn good, probably even better with cereal bulk. The way I made the unlikely delicious drink was as follows:

  • 2.5 spoonfuls of instant coffee
  • 2.5 spoonfuls of sugar
  • a splash of milk
  • one 2 tbsp. scoop of hot chocolate
  • one teabag, allowed to brew 2 minutes
  • boiling water

My method has produced a drink with about 230-240 mg for a 12 oz. mug, including the hot chocolate. Pretty bad-ass for some quick energy. I arrived at the drink feeling tired after 16 hours of activity, and by finishing half of it, felt quite energetic.

I must concede that this may not be the drink for everyone, but it strikes gold for my pallet. Please, try this delicious beverage yourself. And be sure to read the infopic, it's quite an entertaining read.

Dude, why would you do that? :(

I have some health problems and I haven't eaten a chocolate in like 6 - 7 years. This reminds me of the good old times.
