In the early 2000s there was a marketing uphold for Milo India where they catered freebies to promote the brand. A cricket bat for every 2 Kg of Milo, my son convinced his grandfather to buy Milo, I am damn sure not for the drink, but for the Cricket Bat. How we finished that 2 Kg of Milo is another big story then. But Malaysian lifestyle has made Milo an unavoidable beverage in a day-to-day life.
