  • Giannis Antetokounmpo had his mind blown by a kid who taught him about dunking Oreos in a glass of milk.
  • Having tweeted about it, a reporter then asked Giannis if he planned on having Oreos on Thanksgiving.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had his mind blown by a child who taught him how to dunk his Oreos in milk, and went on about it for a full two minutes during a post-game press conference.

"The Greek Freak" tweeted on Wednesday that he had just been taught by an unnamed child about the joys of dunking his cookies into milk.

On Thursday, after Giannis' Milwaukee Bucks had beaten the Detroit Pistons 114 to 93, he was asked by local reporter Stephen Watson, if he planned to enjoy his newly-discovered treat as part of his Thanksgiving dinner.

"I have to ask, Oreos and milk on the Thanksgiving menu?" — Watson said.

Visibly excited by the question, Giannis replied: "Wait, let's talk about that a little bit."

Then, rather than providing a short, straightforward answer, the two-time MVP launched into a 120-second-long discussion of his love for Oreos, and his new found way of eating them.

First, he described how he'd been taught the trick during a commercial shoot, before discussing how he first discovered the cookie.

"When I came to the league, that was the first thing that I ate because when I was younger I was always craving them, but could never afford them," Giannis, who grew up in Athens, Greece, said.

"So I was like, I'm gonna make a little bit of money. People spend money on cars and chains, I'm gonna buy Oreos.

"I ate them for like a month straight. No dinner, no lunch, no nothing. So I got sick of them, right? But I've had them.

"So [the kid] was like, 'have you ever dunked them in milk?' I was like, 'no.' He was like, 'you should try that!'"

Armed with the advice of how to take his Oreo-consumption to another level, Antetokounmpo proved a little too eager and threw the whole cookie in.

Having retrieved his treat with a spoon, Antetokounmpo had his mind blown.

"I was like, 'what the hell? No frickin' way.' He was like, 'you like them?' I was like, 'bro, this is amazing.' Obviously I didn't have one. I had like twelve of them," he said.

"Then I went back home and was like 'Mariah [his girlfriend], why did you not tell me that you can throw the Oreos in milk and eat them?' She told me she doesn't like her Oreos like that. She likes them plain with no milk and all that.

"And I realized that from now on, that's an every night snack for me."
