Ok, where is the evap (evaporated milk)?
How can I introduce my daughter to my childhood pudding of 'daddy/mummy got overtime, we can splurge)' of banana, evap, and brown sugar? Brown sugar I have btw. (Soft dark and light brown).
It's in tins on the shelves usually near the coffee cream, chocolate milk, eggs and stuff like that but it may be with the coffee in some stores.

You need to look for 'lait condensé non sucré' as the one with sugar is condensed milk and not evaporated milk. They look very similar but one is blue and one is red and I can't remember which is which.

Evap milk is probably Kondensmilch, which is milk with amount of water reduced by a lot, as a result it's quite creamy. Do mind that Kondensmilch around here is sweetened most always, which probably affects the needed amount of brown sugar.

Kondensmilch from (again) leshop.ch/Migros (one of the two is unsweetened).

As I said above the unsweetened one is what we refer to in English as evaporated milk and the sweetened one is condensed milk. They are totally different and you can't substitute one for the other really.

Re: How long to acquire taste for Tetrapaked Milk?

Belgianmum - exactly. From memories in my youth - evaporated milk was creamy and unsweetened. Quite nice poured onto raspberries.
What we called condensed milk was QUITE another story. It was sweetened! At that time it was tinned. In Switzerland I think I've only ever seen it in a tube.

Exactly right. We used to have evaporated milk on tin peaches for dessert after tea if we went to my gran's on a Saturday. Condensed milk was used to make toffee on bonfire night or the caramel topping on milionaire's shortbread. Both were in tins in the uk at that time.

From memory I think Migros has both types in tins and the condensed milk in tubes too. COOP has tinned evaporated milk but only tubes of condensed milk.
I don't buy either very often.

I was in the airport Migros today and i bought a tube of sweetened, condensed milk. Next to it were cans of evaporated milk.

I would advise against introducing dinners with added sugar to children, you risk making their life harder later on.
