I like to drink hot cocoa instead of coffee, but which one is the best? (5/27/2006)
As I can't drink coffee as I did before, thanks to the stress from work, I have to drink hot chocolate. I found three brands in the supermarket but I had no idea which one is the better one, so I decided to but all of these brands.
Here are those three brands. The store brand "Great Value" is the cheap one, about $0.88 USD. The Nestle and Swiss Miss brands have a cost of $0.99USD approximately. By the way, these brands are property of their respective owners and companies. I'm not related in any way to these companies.
First, To verify which one is the best milk chocolate, I heated about 6oz of water for one minute in the microwave, after that, I add the chocolate powder (The instructions indicates to add the water to the powder). I don't get this: The boxes says "Add water or milk" but the box already says "Milk chocolate". Do I need to add milk? It indicates 'Milk chocolate'. I should understand it as "It is milk chocolate but to get milk chocolate you should add milk". Something like: "BLT burger but without bacon nor tomato". Whatever. Let's see how the "milk chocolate" looks like.
GREAT VALUE.This brand is not too bad. It taste fine, at least, it taste like chocolate. The powder starts to dissolve almost immediately and the bubbles are almost as the picture in the box shows.
Here is what left of the hot chocolate.
SWISS MISS.This brand taste better than "Great Value" and it starts to dissolve almost immediately. The bubbles in the cup are more than box shows.
Here is what left of the hot chocolate in the cup.
NESTLE.This brand... well.. Is a well-known brand but this chocolate taste like cheap chcolate. At least, it is creamy and the box indicates "contains natural antioxidants". The powder doesn't dissolve easily and the picture in the box is totally different as the chocolate beverage.
Here is the cup after I dumped the beverage on the sink.
Nestle is only 20g per package, so is the expensive one. It have more sodium.
Swiss Miss have more satured Fat and more sugar than the other ones.
Great Value have less fat but it contains more trans fat than the other brands.
I prefer to buy the brand "Swiss Miss". This one have a better flavor and the quality of the product is better than Nestle and "Great Value".
