    Not galaxy hot chocolate. I have that atm, and I'm not a fan.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    twinings swiss hot chocolate drink. mmm. a bit of a treat at £3 something but its worth it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah Galaxy hot chocolate is pretty pants. Aero's nice, all smooth n creamy and efinitely don't need extra sugar. I am partial to a cup of traditional cocoa now and again.

    I much prefer using chocolate to make my hot choc, rather than powder. I quite like half a big bar, melted and mixed with hot milk. With some of the remaining chocolate grated on top with marshmallows and whipped cream. Calorific. But a yummy treat.

    On and I prefer galaxy for this, although leftover easter egg is just as good :yum:

    Oh, just to point out, half a big bar normally does 2 cups - i tend to have to share it with t'hubby.

    Blah, yes it is milky, but if you do it with powder you should always mix it with hot milk :p
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Yeah the Options hot chocolate is really good. I used to always have powder with milk as i never really found powder with water very good until i tried Options! Very nice.

    Ive been drinking Galaxy hot chocolate but, I do prefer aero.

    I use instant but then still top up with milk, makes a creamier drink.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I actually like Galaxy hot chocolate, the normal one and caramel one. The Galaxy one on here is my favourite but it's very expensive http://www.drinkmars.com/gourmet_hot_chocolate/
    I also like the Aero ones.

    The one with marshmallows is really nice but very sickly.

    I make mine with water too. I'm sure it tastes much better with milk, but I never liked it. Maybe I'll try with rice juice one day :p

    I like these bad boys, especially the artic white, which is irrevelent to the conversation because they probably don't exist elsewhere. Land o Lakes Cocoa Classics. http://www.landolakes.com/Products/CocoaAndCappuccino/ I've had all the flavors but butterscotch or cinnamon chocolate, but I'm sure it is delicious too.

    The Sainsbury's economy one is awful, I bought it once and couldn't even drink it.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I bought the Aero one today, i love how its all bubbly and frothy :) Reckon it will be better made with milk not water
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I never make hot chocolates with water, always always milk, lolz sometimes does half milk half eater.. bit no, never.

    I once drunk a cup that holds 2 pints of milk in one go.. yummy but I think I almowt died.

    You're all mad. Instant hot chocolate is :yuck: ! Go the old fashioned cocoa route or melt some good quality chocolate in milk. It's not meant to be healthy :P
