New website AND amazing chocolate milk!

1. OH EM GEE.  I just made the best chocolate milk of all time.  Use one part cold evaporated milk (I used Pet Milk) and one part cold water.  Mix up.  Add chocolate syrup.  Stir.  Drink.  FLAIL BECAUSE IT TASTES LIKE MELTED CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM!!!!  It’s fantastic!  Evaporated milk is double-rich and the flavor is yummy!
