Chocolate Caramel Milk & Pretzels

Photo-A-Day #1900

Yesterday Allison, Eva and I did a big shop for Hershey’s Summer Celebration. We got a bunch of different syrups and so tonight I got to feeling that I wanted to have some chocolate milk. I wanted however to do something a bit different so I made some caramel chocolate milk. Actually, Allison made the milk and I shot the photo.

Getting this shot was pretty much a one shot deal. Allison held the bottles and poured while I ducked down and shot the glass. The chocolate sauce hadn’t even hit the milk yet. The sauce went in so quickly that I only really had that one try at it. I’m pretty happy with how it came out but would really like to try it another way, another time, but I don’t want to waste the syrup or the milk. I don’t think I could work with photographing food all the time because I’d have to waste so much.

So what about the pretzels? I had some pretzels along with the chocolate milk. When I was a kid I would visit my Great-Uncle Richard and at his place he’d have the Bachman pretzels. However I had the Rold Gold Light Salt pretzels and well, it just wasn’t the same, still a good combo but not the same. So occasionally I’ll grab a bag of the Bachman Butter pretzels. Delicious stuff.
