Now and then I feel the urge to go to Amsterdam to relax and indulge in a pleasure I sadly can not find where I live
I usually go to a place where I know I can find a good selection to choose from. All different colors and flavors you know..
Now I hear my favorite is gone!?
What happened to BLANKE VLA ???
Has it been discontinued? Say it isn't so!

OOOOOOOOh I really like Blanke vla. Dubbelvla is good to, but the flavors always get mixed up.
Anyways.. I work at Alberth Heijn (yeah I know.. but a Student can't live solely from the sponsorship of his parents) and we still sell Blanke vla.. so just look around because it has got to be there. Quit searching for Melkunie, the company merged with Campina and now carries that name (Campina that is). I don't know if they still sell blanke vla, but Albert Heijn does with its own brand.

hehe. It's about the consistency of runny custard, but with a creamier taste.
A bit like yoghurt but not sour.
You can drink it, but that leaves some sticking to the walls of your cup needing a spoon to get it out (or a prehensile tongue to lick it).

Vla: a thick, fluid, cold custard pudding made mainly from milk and offered in a variety of tastes ranging from vanilla and chocolate to strawberry.
Too bad you can't get it in North America...at least I don't think so. The only thing that is odd about it is the packaging. It comes in a carton instead of a container with a large lid. You end up with wasted VLA at the bottom of the carton. So much for "good to the last drop"!
