New NESTLÉ DOUBLE BLEND Hot Chocolate is the perfect drink to wrap yourself around this winter. An exotically indulgent, frothy hot chocolate made from a blend of two of the world’s finest cocoas - West African and Ecuadorian - NESTLÉ DOUBLE BLEND Hot Chocolate is the hot chocolate for true chocolate lovers.
I know a lot of people have been complaining that this has been the coldest NZ winter for ages. What better thing to do than to warm your soul with a nice mug of hot chocolate. These days, ordering hot chocolate is not quite so simple - you can get all sorts of different variants - flavours? soy milk? trim?
Nestle has capitalised on their double blend (two types of cocoa) chocolate with this spin-off hot chocolate. For days when you are too busy to pop down to the cafe, why not try this perfectly good substitute?
What I like about it is that it comes in 4 flavours - original, hazelnut, caramel, mint to suit all tastes. The hazelnut is simply yummy (I note also that Esquires is touting a "winter-special" which is the hazelnut hot chocolate). If however you don't like hazelnut, you probably wouldn't like this flavour as it is quite strong, not to mention there is a distintive nutty consistency fo your drink! (Great if you like that kind of thing...)
Just like in the picture on the box, they do froth up instantly when you add hot water. I personally like to add a little bit of milk but that is not necessary.
They come in a box filled with conveniently individually wrapped packages - one per serving.
