Cadbury Drinking Chocolate
Advantages: Lovely taste
Disadvantages: High in calories
The only hot drink I ever drink is hot chocolate and the best of them all has to be Cadbury's Chocolate Drink. The drink has been around for years and years and is such a lovely drink, I doubt it will ever disappear off the shelves.
The packaging for the hot chocolate is very familiar to anyone who likes Cadbury's as it is the normal purple like they have on their chocolate bars. The latest version of it is fairtrade so you know they are doing their bit to help those at the beginning of the chain for making it.
To make a classic drink you need to hot up some milk and then add three heaped teaspoons full of hot chocolate to the milk. It tells you to use hot milk and not boiling but I like to make sure the milk has boiled first as then you get the nice bubbly bit on the top. Then I pour it in the mug and just leave it for a minute to cool down a bit then add the chocolate powder and stir it in. This makes it really frothy on the top and the chocolate blends in easily. Some people like to add a spoonful of sugar to the drink but I find it sweet enough without it.
A good thing about this powder is that you don't just have to use it in a drink, you can also add it to cake mixes to make them into chocolate cakes or add it to some icing to make chocolate flavoured icing. The taste is so chocolatey that it works really well.
I am dieting at the moment so I have been buying the highlight version of the drink which is the low calorie one but it doesn't taste as good as this original drink so if I am out and have a hot drink somewhere I am really pleased when I see they are using Cadbury's hot chocolate and they are making it with the milk and have it as my special treat. The calories for one cup of hot chocolate including semi skimmed milk is 165, so quite a lot up to the highlights which is only 40 calories but as a treat now and then I am sure I can fit it in with my weekly calorie allowance.
