From Baby To Lady

[She’s a lady….Oh whoa whoa whoa she was a baby].   Perhaps Tom Jones was thinking of this….LOLX

I was born with a mouth full of sweet teeth, and Dutch Baby was my favourite food & beverage companion, which I could eat or sip as well — spread on my roti, dissolved in my coffee or even jilat  off my jari !  Sedapnya !

Some time in the 1970s (memory a bit murky/milky now),  the name was changed to Dutch Lady;….it supposedly was done “for better product positioning”.  There were also claims that the word “Baby” could mislead uninformed people into feeding the condensed milk to babies.   (But in the old days, that was not uncommon among the poor, without any hoohah). 

Not sure if Dutch Lady still produces condensed milk — I have not seen a can for years now.
