Well, at least some sophonts-of-terran-stock must eat it, since a UNS commissary
stocked quite a bit of it, before our favourite amorph arrived, and the UNS is primarily a SoTS organisation.
I imagine most Earthlings would use it as a beverage mix component rather than directly eating it straight.
I dunno, the Australian equivalent of this substance (Milo) is wonderful when eaten by the spoonful straight from the can.
Not that I'd ever do that of course . . that'd be gross . . .
Lucky bugger, I can't have it (along with a lot of other stuff, including chocolate) due to food intolerances.
Could be worse, my little brother's coeliac's - among many other things, including Milo, he can't have Vegemite. He's an Australian. Who comes up in full-body hives and massive stomach cramps. When he has. Vegemite!
We didn't even think about Vegemite when we figured out his coeliac's - took him off all other sources of gluten he was eating and wondered why he was still having contaminations. We thought it was from crumbs in margarine, or something. Took us forever to realise Vegemite has gluten in it, despite the fact it's made from yeast, just because it's so omnipresent. I mean, allergic to Vegemite? Who would think of that, right?
He can't have sandwiches unless they're made from gluten-free bread that I worked out is 50c a (very small) slice, can't have burgers, pizza, a lot of sausages, some other processed meats, damper, anything
with gluten in it.
We both have a lot of intolerances that are shared, but we each can have things the other can't. Challenge for Mum, coming up with meals that we can both have. I think he's worse off, because come on, no sandwiches? but he thinks I'm worse off because come on, no chocolate? And we both can't have most lollies, due to artificial colours. At least we're not like our grandfather though, who goes into anaphylactic shock from artificial colour 102, which is in many foods, toothpaste, antibacterial handwash (that was fun, when he was having surgery and the doctors had washed their hands in something with 102 in it. They shove their hands in him, his heart and lungs stop). Hell, they put 102, which is artificial yellow, into a lot of vanilla ice cream (jsut about all I can have) to make it look more 'natural'!
Sorry for the rant.
tl;dr version: no Milo for me, no Vegemite or Milo for my little brother. Woe is us.
