“ Manufacturer: Marks & Spencer / Type: Chocolate Drink „
I'm one of those people that tend to treat themselves to something a bit more luxurious food and drink wise if I am feeling a bit down. I do like the odd drink of Chocolate Milk, and when I spotted this I knew I had to try it.
This comes in a 500ml bottle and a 1 litre bottle (well that's the sizes that are in my branch of m&s anyway.) Although I had never tried it before I thought I would probably like it so I went for the 1 litre bottle as it worked out a bit cheaper as things usually do when you buy the larger sized product.
The 500ml bottle was selling for £1.48 and the 1 litre bottle was £2.
The bottle for this is pretty average. Just a plastic bottle and you can see the medium brown colouring of the Chocolate Milk through it.
So how does this taste? Well the image of Belgian Chocolate is a rich taste and this does taste rich. It isn't as thick as Frijj Milk but then again that is a Milkshake, but I do find this a little thicker than Asda's version of Chocolate Milk but just a little bit more thick. The taste of this is lovely. It is nice and sweet but not overly, and the Chocolate tastes rich, fresh and Milky. It is such a nice Chocolate Milk.
As you may imagine this isn't so good calorie wise. Per 100ml this has 125 calories and I would say it is easy to drink half the bottle without even really realising.
I would say that this is the best Chocolate Milk that I have drank,but this being m&s then I find their quality of food and drink to be good anyway. Yes, it is more expensive than all the rest, but it is such a lovely Chocolate treat.
One day i fancied a nice chocolate drink and funnily enough the closest shop to me was M&S so i went in and found this baby. At about £1.50 for a 500ml was abit pricey but i thought was the heck, its M&S. And wow the price was worth it.
Even by shaking the bottled you know this drink is quality, not like the liquid milk drinks usually around. After shaking i opened the bottle and took my first sip. The drink massaged my throat as it went down. I had found the daddy of all chocolate drinks. You can taste the smooth belgian chocolate inside and the thickness of the drink is just right. Not as thick as frijj but not as thin as the galaxy drinks. This was right in the middle. I think it took me about 2mins to finish this bottle! The drink is also quite filling so it could well and trully be classed as a snack for most people.
To tell you this drink is popular is an understatement and to prove this everytime i go to m&s and look for this drink i am left sad as it has always run out!
So people when in m&s have a look for this drink and you will not be disapointed, well only if its not there.
I tried this product once and now have to treat myself whenever I'm in M&S!
As with most M&S foodstuffs it's a little bit pricer than most brands and once again, like most M&S products it's a lot tastier too so it's all worth it. It costs £1.50 for a 500ml bottle, which is usually foound within their 'lunch' foods. A 1 litre bottle which can be found with the milk is £2.00, however just before christmas it was on offer for £1.48 for a 200ml bottle. I put on a pound or two that week.
On the label it states that a serving is 250ml, but the 500ml bottles go down quite easily. The calories content is 125 calories per 100ml, so buy M&S reckoning, just over 300 cals a serving. If you're going to do the bottle like me, more like 625.
Having said all this, the milkshake is very thick and filling, and I could eat much with it. Think Frijj style milkshakes and you'll have an idea. Therefore, If this was going to be 'lunch' 600cals is forgiveable isn't it?!
Forget all the negativity over price and calories. Any sensible person knows chocolate milk is treat stuff and if you want a treat you can't get better. This a really tasty drink, full of real belgian chocolate flavour, creamy, thick, filling and satisfying. The Nesquicks and Yazoos can't compete. M&S gives use top class quality. Again.
