Would you sip on a nice cold glass of ‘milk Coke’? The drink, which, as its name suggests, is a combination of dairy milk and Coca Cola, is currently a topic of conversation on Twitter, and users seem split regarding the newly-discovered beverage.

Though it’s not exactly clear what spurred this renewed interest in milk Coke, which has played out over the last few days, Twitter is now dived into two camps: Those who love it and those who don’t.

“Team #milkcoke,” wrote one user alongside photos of her taking a sip of the beige beverage. “Milk coke is a real thing. Brummies love it,” added another fan from Birmingham, England, who also showed off a glass of the divisive beverage combo. “We can all move on from this discussion now, I will be taking no further questions.”

While milk Coke clearly has devoted fans, the idea of mixing dairy with fizzy soda was just too much for others to comprehend. “Who tf actually drinks milk with coke pls enlighten me,” wondered one naysayer. Added another: “I’m sorry… If you drink milk coke, we can’t be friends.”

Still, milk Coke fans declare that not only is the beverage delicious (and not all that different from popular drinks, such as an egg cream or an ice cream float), but it’s actually nothing new, either. “It’s weird to me that #milkcoke isn’t common knowledge,” wrote one Twitter user. “My parents introduced us to Soda/milk combo when I was like 4 – so 24 years ago give or take. At the times was called ‘Bop’ or a ‘Brown Cow’ and yes if done correctly it was amazing.”

Others were quick to point out that the controversial thirst-quencher is even a part of pop culture already, considering it was a frequent drink of choice on the sitcom Laverne and Shirley, which ran from 1976- 1983. “Hey all #milkcoke doubters,” one Twitter user declared. “Laverne and Shirley were drinking Pepsi and Milk in the 1970s.”

And for those worried that the soda and milk combo might not mesh properly, a milk Coke fan answered the question, “What do you do with the curdled bits?” with a succinct retort: “You chew.”
