One even claimed that the difference between pronunciation depended on one’s country of residence.

Contrary to popular belief, Milo was actually created in Australia by Thomas Mayne, an industrial chemist and inventor who was working at Nestlé at the time.

The chocolate malt drink has been popular among Malaysians for more than 50 years due to its sweetness, which is ideal for a nation known for having the greatest sweet tooth in Southeast Asia.

Malaysia currently ranks No.1 in the world when it comes to consuming Milo, with Singapore coming in second.
