This tastes fab, if made according to the instructions (3-4 heaped teaspoons per mug.) It doesn't last long though, and the tub is about twice as big as it needs to be! However, it is definitely the best instant hot choc available!

Very lovely hot chocolate. Actually tastes like proper cacao! Very quick and easy to make with boiled water instead of having to mess around boiling milk in a pan over a stove. Has a bitter sweet overtone. Not too sweet either so isn’t too sickly. One of the best instant “just add hot water” hot chocolates out there. The only downside is that you do need quite a few heaped tea spoons of product otherwise it can be a but ‘thin’, so one tub doesn’t last long.
