I made the mistake of making all of the two serving sample pouch for myself. It really is super rich and tastes like liquified dark chocolate. There is a hint of that fruity taste you get from good quality dark chocolate.
Just so you guys know a serving is 4 tbs of milk to 19g of the chocolate. That is pretty much enough for one serving because of how rich it is. The full size would make about 9 of these servings.
For those getting chunks, heat it along with the milk on a stove and use a whisk to constantly stir it while it heats up. Eventually there will be no lumps.
I got this, only to see that it expires in less than two months.
This chocolate tastes bitter and waxy. Not impressed.
I ordered this because I miss a particular thick chocolate drink from a coffee shop that was discontinued years ago, and I am constantly trying to find something similar to it :) This isn't quite that, but it's pretty good! I am not sure I'm getting the ratio of milk to chocolate right (I don't have a fluid ounce measuring spoon nor do I have a kitchen scale to get exactly 19 ounces of chocolate), but I'm doing about 4:1 tbsp milk:chocolate. I'll keep playing with the recipe. In any case, it definitely beats out packaged powder hot chocolate mix!
You have to like dark chocolate to enjoy this drink. It is very rich and pretty strong and perfect for my dark chocolate love.
Expresso of hot chocolates
This is not a kids drink, it is for enjoying in a expresso size. Very rich, the aroma was terrific, once sachet serves two and you don't use much milk, but I added 2 tablespoons more as it was so rich, and actually spilt it between three in small mugs, we enjoyed it around a log fire and it was the perfect drink :)
