2 or 40 calories per cup.. help.!!
I do agree with all the negative comments out there, but even then, this drink is doing it for me at a tiny percentage of the calories of chocolate bars which I am trying to wean myself off, so this gets the thumbs up, does taste chocolatey when you drink it, does leave a chemical taste in the mouth, but is it 19 calories for 100g so for 11g it should be about 2 calories a cup which is fantastic or is it actually 40 calories a cup, works with 250ml water too, just added a little more powder.. Impressive if it curbs my chocolate addiction and prevents obesity in me, I'd be grateful ...
Like it! Good value.
Seems you either love it or hate it. I find it very good, I mix to a smooth paste with a small amount of milk. Good value too.
Nice drink but review the labeling
I am happy with the product but not the way the calories are written. It has taken me way too long to realise that 100g 19kcal means 100ml is 19kcal. If the Energy is put on the website and on the product at least get it right!
DO NOT BUY!
this was the most foul-tasting hot chocolate. It was a substitute for Tesco's reg hot chocolate mix in my Tesco Home Delivery. It leaves a very nasty vile weird after taste in your mouth... we have tried to use different strengths to see if we could even stomach it but No, I would not recommend this for any amount of money.
Tastes just like Options, misleading reviews!
I am really surprised by the number of negative reviews this has. I am a bit fussy when it comes to hot chocolate. I can't stand Cadburys, Galaxy or low quality watery brands. I much prefer to make my own (though these are generally very high calorie, high fat and high sugar drinks!). However, as far as low calorie, low fat hot chocolates go, this is one of the best I have tried. It can go lumpy as others have said, but it's easy to rectify this by mixing with milk or water into a paste, then gradually pouring hot water. For a thicker chocolate, either use less water or add an extra teaspoon of powder. Simple. Interestingly, the ingredients for this hot chocolate are very, very similar to the ingredients used in Options (minus the Belgian chocolate). Options have excellent reviews whereas this one doesn't. They taste almost the same, so no idea why there's such a contrast in reviews! I personally prefer Tesco brand because it is so much more affordable than Options and other popular brands, yet uses the same ingredients or very similar substitutes. This hot chocolate is also really nice mixed with coffee and oatmeal, to add a chocolatey kick without the guilt. I will definitely continue to buy this. Please keep selling this product Tesco.
Not pleasant at all.
I really didn't like this product and would give it no stars if I could. Didn't taste of chocolate, just watery and unpleasant. I didn't want to finish the jar, and only did as I hate wasting food. Seriously not nice.
Can not understand negative reviews. Much more taste than the sugary version, and you need to use a lot less. Best made with 1% milk by adding the milk to the powder and stirring.. Excellent product.
Straight in the bin.
Horrible. No other word for it. Doesn't even taste like chocolate. Please Tesco stop selling this, it is simply disgusting.
Good value and can be made lump free.
As with previous reviews, I found this very lumpy - HOWEVER when I place a small amount of boiling water over the powder and blend with spoon into a smooth paste, then gradually add more water, it comes out much smoother and with hardly any lumps. To me, It's worth the faff as this is lovely drinking chocolate at a good price. I also add a tad more sugar and a bit of coffee whitener to make it creamier.
Don't waste your money
Horrible taste and very lumpy.
