5.0 out of 5 stars Bold, Full-bodied, Delicious, December 16, 2011
This review is from: Similac Expert Care Alimentum Hypoallergenic Infant Formula with Iron, Powder, 16 Ounces (Pack of 6) (Health and Beauty)
Something of an acquired taste, the protein hydrosylates are a class of formula long overlooked by everyday drinkers. Yet, for the daring, those such as Similac Alimentum can deliver a uniquely satisfying drinking experience.

The container is simple and utilitarian, which, while elegant in its minimalism, belies the marvelous menagerie of sensations that lies within. The hue of the formula itself is an enigmatic off-white, dim as is white when seen by only the light of a 40-watt bulb, reminding one of the wedding dress worn by Dickens' Miss Havisham, the color of virginal purity distressed and darkened by disappointment and age. On the nose, one is surprised to awaken to a bouquet of boldly cacophonous notes: cardamon, cassis, honey, tarragon and spice all broken down into their raw essences and released in gaseous form as if by the highly efficient digestive system of a cow, the scent intoxicating you like when you decided to stay inside the car with the windows closed at the station while you filled up on gas. On the palate, one savors a smooth, full-bodied, velvety texture while mineral and earthy flavors overwhelm and occupy the Zucotti Park that is your mouth. The finish echoes tart, smokey hints that linger indefinitely, evoking what you'd imagined it'd be like to kiss Lindsay Lohan. Not "Parent Trap" Lindsay Lohan because that would be totally illegal, more like present-day Lindsay Lohan, because even though she's aging prematurely and a total mess, you still wouldn't turn her down because you sympathized with her character in "Mean Girls" and, let's be honest, you have a thing for the crazy "used-up" type. Pairs well with salmon, asparagus, and rice cereal.
