A tetra pack holds 180 ml of the milkshake. It comes with a paper straw attached to the carton. It is priced at Rs 45/- and has a nine-month shelf life.
Toned milk (80%), water, sugar, protomalt (2.8%) (starch and malted barley) (1.1%), cocoa solids (1.1%), acidity regulator (340 (II) and 341 (II)), stabilizers (412 and 407), nature identical and natural flavoring substances, vitamins, sweeteners (960), and minerals.

One serving (180 ml) of Milo offers 144 Kcal with 20.5 grams of carbohydrates (of which 14.6 is sugar), 5.2 grams of protein, and 4.5 grams of fat.
We compared this to other packaged chocolate milkshakes and found Milo is marginally lower in calories and sugar content. It also offers a slightly higher amount of protein.
Coming to micronutrients, the calcium and phosphorus content is similar but Milo’s Vitamin B profile is richer.
The consistency was fairly decent. Neither was it too thick nor too thin. The milkshake was smooth and light on the palette.
First things first, the milk used tasted fresh. There was no underlying sourness or anything indicating that the milk had gone bad. It had the toasted nutty malty taste with a prominent cocoa flavor. The sweetness was balanced, not too overwhelming.
The flavor profile is sure to attract a younger audience.
