Corrie A-Z: M is for milk stout

Comments (2)

11183820_9d07cb81b4.jpgWhat would Coronation Street be without milk stout? Ena Sharples & Co. may not have been as outspoken had they not enjoyed their daily stimulant. But just what is this sacred drink? Milk stout is derived from lactose, a sugar found in milk, which increases the number of calories as well as the sweetness. Stout is often prescribed to new mothers and people who are ill as its nutritional value helps to restore the body. Coronation Street reflected this fable when Ena was hospitalised and both Martha and Minnie snook bottles of stout into the hospital. Ena scoffed at their attempts and gleefully pointed out that she got a bottle a day on the NHS! [Ben]
