Every now and again when the chocolate craving takes hold, obviously the only way to fix it is with some chocolate but sometimes I like it in the form of a drink and one of the best chocolate milks I have found is Yazoo chocolate milk. Its very creamy and delicious and definitely cures my chocolate craving. I find its especially nice on a really warm day when it is served very cold straight from the fridge although I always need a water chaser after it because its quite thick and creamy and I need something to quench my thirst afterwards too.
I definitely think its important to drink milk as adults but most people I know just have a little in their tea and then that is it. When I was pregnant I made a point of drinking at least a glass of milk a day and have now carried that on after pregnancy and a good way of making milk more enjoyable is by having chocolate with it in my opinion.
Yazoo comes in a plastic bottle. Its brown and white so you know you are getting the chocolate variety and there is a screw cap lid which is handy as you can put it back on if you won't want to drink the whole thing. On the side of the bottle it says that this is a healthy milkshake as it is high in protein, contains no artificial sweeteners, flavours or colours, it's low in fat, only 1.5% fat and its packed full of flavour.
I definitely love the flavour os this milk. I find it lovely and creamy and chocolatey but not sweet and sugary which is great as I don't think I could drink it if it was too sugary. It has a lovely light brown colour to it so you feel like you are drinking a lot of nice flavoured milk. The main ingredient listed first is semi-skimmed milk and they say on the bottle that calcium and protein help to protect bones so this is really a great drink for your body.
I buy the 472ml bottles. Now, per 100ml there are 65 calories so if you drink the whole bottle in one go you are drinking over 250 calories just on a drink so I wouldn't recommend one of these everyday but for a nice treat now and again they are great. They fill me up quite considerably so if you see it as a snack too that is great. A really nice, flavourful way to drink your milk.
I am a big fan of milkshakes, but generally stick to frijj- I only drink yazoo when there is no frijj, and i'm always disappointed. Frijj is a thick, creamy shake, where as yazoo is more like chocolate milk- if you like that then you'll probably be ok with this, but if you expect a creamy milkshake then stick with frijj.
Like all milk-drinks it is healthier than fizzy drinks, and as they're not so moorish compared to fizzy pop- they tend to last a little bit longer too. It is cheap, quite a bit cheaper than frijj (except for when frijj is on offer), so it is a better buy for the budget conscious consumer, especially the 1L bottles. I'm a big fan of strong flavours, but if you like your drinks to be less intense then maybe you'd prefer this to frijj, as frijj can be a little thick and sickly for some people- so try both and let me know what you think
I think yazoo has a lot of nostalgic fans, but since I never drank it as a kid I have no attachment to it, and given the choice i'd rather drink anything but yazoo- but more often than not it's all my spar has in stock, because they've already sold all the frijj!
As I have mentioned before when it comes to having milkshake I much much prefer the authentic, thick homemade type - the best chocolate one I have had so far has been from Byron Burger restaurant (insert love heart eyes here!) but when that is not feasible I like these yazoo milkshakes as a more accessible option and as a treat from time to time my daughter loves it too!
This milkshake can be purchased in a variety of sizes, e.g. the 1 litre bottle, the individual 475ml bottle or I usually just get a pack of 3 200ml cartons in my 99p store (I really need to stop entering this shop but what can you do when they have such great bargains?!!?) Price wise, I find the the 3 cartons for 99p the best value anyway as its essentially 99p for 600ml and I have seen the 475ml bottles selling for around this price in most retailers. Also in this packaging, they are great for individual use and as a treat on occasion my daughter has some of the chocolate yazoo and I think 200ml is definitely her limit!
The milk comes in a plastic bottle which has a plastic screw top lid so it is resealable. Under the lid is a foil cover which can be peeled back so the drink can be consumed straight from the bottle otherwise it also has a straw attached so this can be pierced and it can be drank through this method.
It is very milky in terms of consistency as a smooth flowing liquid and taste wise it is pretty much just with chocolate flavour! It is is not overbearingly sweet, but in terms of personal consumption I couldn't drink this all day as it would be too sickly and repetitive, so a small 200ml dosage is sufficient to cure my chocolate fix! I would definitely say this is best served cold as warm chocolate milk taste odd if its not the leftover milk from my coco pops (something I haven't eaten in a good 10 years or so!). The milk when sucked through the straw looks a very light brown, chocolatey colour which is apt that it blends well with the brand and looks exactly how it tastes.
Overall, I am a big fan of Yazoo including this Chocolate Milkshake and would recommend it to anyone wanting a short sharp chocolate fix and a nice tasting drink at the same time.
I have been buying Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake for a number of years, mostly as my kids really love it, but I'm a little partial to having a drink of it every now and again. It does come in a variety of sizes, but I tend to buy it in the bottle which contains 1L of the chocolate milkshake - and to be honest, as I have a family of 5, it would be more convenient if it came in a 2L bottle like many soft drinks do these days. A 1L bottle of Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake costs £1.20 from Tesco, but at the moment you can buy two 1L bottles for £2.00. I think this cost is okay, especially as I don't think it's something that you'd want to drink (or allow your child to drink!) every day.
The milk comes in a plastic bottle which has a plastic screw top lid to reseal it - although it's worth mentioning that once the bottle has been opened for the first time, the lid never seems to be that secure. Obviously this isn't an issue if the milk is kept upright in the fridge, but if you're wanting to carry it in your bag then this can be an issue and I'd recommend buying a smaller bottle and keeping it sealed until you want to drink it. The bottle has information on it regarding storage and nutritional information (that I choose to ignore).
The drink itself has to be served cold as warm milk is just not pleasant! Infact I quite like to add ice-cubes too it to keep it ice cold as the colder really the better. The milk is very smooth and looks fairly rich, even though it's made with semi-skimmed milk. The milk smells very chocolately and has a lovely velvety brown colour which looks really appetising. The flavour is also very rich and has a good depth to it where the chocolate flavour is evenly distributed and infused though out the drink, and although it is sweet, it is not too sweet. It slips down very nicely and has a pleasant aftertaste, and leaves me feeling refreshed and like I've been a little a little naughty and had a nice treat.
Overall, I enjoy the Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake and would recommend it for an occasional treat. However, it is fairly calorific, with one glass containing about 200 calories. It is a nice drink and I'm sure most children would like it as much as mine do.
My husband recently brought in some soft drinks for us which he had purchased from a local grocery store. Among the assorted drinks was a couple of milkshakes from the well-known "Yazoo" brand, and this review is based on my opinion of the Chocolate flavour milkshake drink.
Packaged in a generously sized 472ml bottle, the milkshake that my husband bought cost around 80 pence and the bottle was large enough that we could both get a glass of milkshake from it. The bottle can be recycled after use, as it is made of plastic. (The bottle has changed from the picture shown at the top of the Dooyoo page here, but the product is the same).
I believe that the range of Yazoo Milkshakes offers other flavours such as Banana and Strawberry. The drinks are available to buy in some stores in little multi-packs containing smaller bottles, as well as two sizes of 'larger' bottle, namely a 1litre size and the bottle I had.
On top of the bottle is a circular lid which can be closed tightly. Underneath the lid was a foil seal which had to be removed prior to the drink being poured. I liked the fact that this little seal was present as it gave the impression of the drink being completely hygienic and fresh. We drank the bottle in one sitting, but if you choose to store an opened bottle of the drink, you should treat it as you would with normal milk and of course this means it should be stored in the fridge.
As a side note, I have seen the Yazoo milkshakes for sale in some stores and shops where they are simply stored on a shop shelf and not in a refrigerator. If this is how you purchase your Yazoo, then I would recommend storing it in your own fridge for a while before you drink it. This drink is definitely one that is best served chilled, and there is a suggestion to this effect printed on the bottle's label.
Pouring the milkshake into a glass, I could see that it was wonderfully smooth and it looked to be quite creamy in its appearance, although I was surprised that it didn't have a thicker consistency. It didn't look to be overly-runny to be fair, but compared to other chocolate milkshakes that I have purchased recently, the Yazoo was certainly a lot thinner in comparison.
The smell of rich chocolate was evident almost as soon as I peeled the foil seal from the bottle, but certainly as I poured the milkshake into a glass. Smelling extremely sweet and quite rich, I was concerned that the shake might have a slightly 'sickly' feel to it as I was drinking it. This was purely down to the level of sweetness that was evident to me as the drink was being poured.
Sipping the drink from the glass, I found that the consistency was actually quite creamy and although based on its appearance I had thought it was lacking slightly in its thickness, this wasn't evident at all whilst I was drinking the shake. I actually thought that the consistency was very pleasant and it suited the taste of the chocolate milkshake perfectly.
The flavour and taste of the Yazoo Milkshake were neither disappointing or uninspiring either. I thought that the chocolate shake was quite flavoursome and not at all watery or too subdued for my own liking. The rich chocolate taste was surprisingly strong and I found the flavour to be quite satisfying. It is true to say that the chocolate shake was extremely sweet, and I am therefore unsure if I could have drank a larger quantity. For the glass-full that I did consume however, I thought that the drink was not at all over-powering or sickly, and I thoroughly enjoyed the drink.
Several other brands of chocolate milkshake that I have bought in the past have been a bit of a disappointment for me personally, as I have found they can produce a slightly bitter after-taste within their flavour. This experience has made me slightly cautious about trying new brands, but I was pleased to note that the Yazoo shake had no such bitterness within its overall flavour, and it is definitely a drink that I would purchase again.
Looking at the nutritional information on the bottle, I can see that 100ml of the Yazoo shake will provide 65kcal and 1.5g fat. I can also see that the product is suitable for vegetarians. The chocolate shake contains no artificial colours or flavourings.
Overall, I would highly recommend the Yazoo shake and I will buy it again. The milkshakes can be bought from good grocery stores and some supermarkets, such as Asda (or online at www.asda.com) for only £1 for the 1litre bottle, or £2 for the multi-pack containing 6 small bottles. (Info correct as @ March 2012).
What kid doesn't like chocolate milkshake?! I began drinking Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake a number of years ago now and still drink it to this day. Campina are the brand behind this wonderful drink which is also available in strawberry and banana flavours. The large 500ml bottles are what I usually buy, but they are also available in packs of four smaller bottles which also have a straw attached.
The bottles themselves are fully recyclable as they made from plastic, with a screwcap which protects the foil seal. The foil is easy to peel off and this gives you confidence that the drink hasn't been tampered with, aswell as for freshness. The label is simple and contains all the important information such as ingredients, and the suggestion you should always shake well before drinking. The drink itself is seemingly very healthy, with many positive points to note written on the packaging. Low in fat is one of the 'stats' to note, along with 'no artifical sweeteners or preservatives' and 'less than 5% added sugar'. All of these are sound claims, but there are always questions raised that perhaps they find ways around such details.
The drink tastes great, with not a hint of suggestion that this is indeed long life milk. Sometimes I find milkshakes to be quite thick and very sweet, but I think Yazoo has good balance - neither too thick or too watery. The milkshake does taste very chocolatey and has a rich chocolatey smell aswell. Some milkshakes can taste really very sickly and also be quite heavy on your tummy, something Yazoo avoids by not been packed with fats, sugars and all the other unhealthy ingredients you could imagine to make it taste nicer.
The drink is displayed near the breakfast cereals in the supermarket, so it isn't refrigerated. I don't particularly find it as tasty when it is warm, so I always chill it before consumption. Some of the chilled milkshakes can be quite fattening and contain a good deal more sugar than Yazoo, so in the health stakes I have to favour Yazoo. It has to be kept in the fridge after opening, though the main advantage to it being long life milk is that until it is opened it doesn't need to be chilled.
With the larger bottles costing under a pound I really do prefer Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake to any chilled variety of milkshake. Kids don't particularly like milk and so a compromise with this Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake is worthwhile considering the health benefits of calcium and Vitamin B12 but to name a few.
My little girl is totally milk crazy and would just drink it all the time so for a bit of a change I decided to buy some milkshake for her to try. In Asda recently there was a large stand full of Yazoo milkshakes in packs of six for £2.00 so I let her choose from the three flavours available. Not surprisingly she chose the chocolate flavour! Now as someone who totally despises milkshake I am letting my daughter give nearly all of the opinion in this review.
The Yazoo milkshakes come in various sizes, and today I am reviewing the 200ml bottle. There are six bottles per pack and these come wrapped in a cardboard packaging. The bottles are made of plastic and are curved in the centre (a bit like a waist!). Wrapped around the bottle you will find a plastic label which covers the whole of the bottle and it is brown in colour. The background of the label is in fact the milkshake and shows a splash at the bottom to give the drink effect. The Yazoo logo is written in large blue lettering up the front of the bottle alongside the flavour. It tells us that there is only 1.5% fat in the milkshake and that there are no artificial flavours or colours. The lid is brown to match the label and is a screw top one so the bottle can be closed again if not being drunk all at once. Underneath the lid you will find a silver cap which is to be peeled back to reveal the drink inside. There is a straw attached to the side of the bottle so it can be drunk either straight from the bottle or with a straw (or poured into a glass of course).
Opening the milkshake you can instantly smell a chocolate aroma though I don't think it is as strong as I would expect a chocolate milkshake to smell. I would describe the milkshake as quite thin in consistency, even though I only have McDonalds milkshakes to compare it to!
I tasted the milkshake purely for the purpose of this review, and I absolutely hate it!! To me it is very sickly though it isn't overly chocolatey like I expected and it is like a fake chocolate taste to me. My daughter, on the other hand adores it and she just can't get enough of it. I asked her to describe the taste and she said it is nice and like melted chocolate so I summise from that that milkshake lovers will probably like it!
I do like how the bottles are a handy size which means one will easily fit in my bag when we are going out shopping so I have a drink ready for if my daughter wants one. I also like the fact it comes with a straw and that can be just pushed through the silver lid so there is less risk of any spillage!
It states on the packaging that Yazoo milkshake meets government regulations for use in schools so it shows that they are a good, healthy option for children and if I was to buy any milkshakes for my daughter these would be it.
The price of the milkshakes was £2.00 for a pack of six and you can find them available in litre sizes for about a pound in most supermarkets.
I would personally give the milkshake one star but as my little girl really enjoys it and the nutritional value is quite good in them I will give it four stars. Thank you for reading my review.
On Saturday morning after a Friday after work pub session the one thing I crave more than anything is a chocolate flavoured Yazoo drink. I have always found this to be my favourite milkshake brand over the likes of Frijj and Mars drinks.
The milkshakes are made by a company called FrieslandCampina who have more than 130 years experience working in a sustainable dairy farming and is the No1 dairy co-operative in the world. I have never heard of this company before though they apparently have more than 30 well known brands on the market such a yoghurts, cheese and dessert dishes.
Yazoo comes in three sizes, a snack size 200ml, a 500ml and a 1l bottle. The drink is held in a plastic bottle and all are foil sealed for freshness. The chocolate shake has a brown coloured label and Yazoo branding all over it. The bottle advertises 'Low in fat, no colours or artificial sweeteners' in large letters on the front. The lid is a brown screw on top again made of plastic that you never seem to be able to tighten enough to seal the drink. This is not one of those drinks you can put back into your bag for later as it leaks very easily, not that I am ever able to make mine last for that amount of time. This is often on offer in supermarkets and at full price a 500ml bottle sets you back about 89p, a bargain.
The drink is a creamy brown colour which bubbles on the top and made of semi-skimmed milk. The consistency is smooth and quite thin for a milkshake compared to other well known brands, meaning it goes down very easily. This drink MUST be served chilled, there is nothing better than coming in on a hot day and gulping this cold rich chocolate shake down, it is very refreshing. It is not recommended to drink warm and it really does ruin the flavouring of the drink to do so.
I am not a huge chocolate fan, but I find chocolate Yazoo has just the right amount of cocoa powder to flavour the milk drink without being too strong or sickly. Likewise I do not like drinking milk on its own, but I could actually drink Yazoo all day long without getting sick of it, it is a highly addictive and tasty drink. The milkshake is not creamy, just a nice, pure chocolate taste which makes me like this drink so much.

This drink has been allowed in schools and is advertised as a healthy low-fat drink, and this is true to an extent. The calcium content is 70% of your daily allowance and for a chocolate milkshake it is moderately healthy. I was shocked to discover recently that a 500ml bottle was worth 7.5 weight watchers points and when you're only allowed 20 points for the entire day it puts it in perspective how fattening this drink actually is. Still, everything in moderation. This is a fab treat and you don't drink it for its calorie count, you drink it for the enjoyment. It is one of my favourite drinks of all time and for that I am giving it 5 stars!
As a huge milkshake fan I recently took advantage of Tesco's recent offer on YAZOO where they were doing a Buy One Get One Free on 475ml bottles for just 99p. Though more a fan of home made milkshakes, or genuinely fresh milkshakes it seems like theirs not enough milkshake parlours and instead bottled milkshakes are the only option. With the major brands being YAZOO and Frijj and it's impossible not to compare the two through out a review of the product. Having recently tried the YAZOO strawberry flavour I found it thoroughly enjoyable but tasted more like strawberry flavoured milk than a true milkshake, can this chocolate one be more of a true milk shake?
Coming in a brown bottle with the words "Chocolate milk shaken up" written on it, it's obvious to tell this from the other flavours of the drink (which are different depending on flavour). As with all similar drinks you are to shake it up to mix it then open the brown lid and peel the foil top off. This is done easily enough and you can then see the brown liquid of the shake, although the smell isn't the strongest it does have a little bit of a chemical scent to it (though it still smells better than some rivals such as the Mars and Galaxy shakes which smell disgusting). Though it's the drinking of the shake that really matters after all, so how does it taste?
The most apparent thing is that it's chocolate tasting, and not chemically and disgusting, the chocolate seems to impose it's self over the milk as well (something not all milk shakes manage to do). The shake is also moderately thick, not as thick as the Frijj shake but much thicker than the strawberry YAZOO which was incredibly thin and runny. The thickness seems to make the drink seem more filling and much more of a "milk shake" than a "flavoured milk" drink. It's a delightful consistency and flavour that seems to last longer than the Frijj bottle (yet is actually smaller) which makes it great value for money.
Overall the drink is brilliant, much better than strawberry drink by the same company and at 50p a bottle during the current offer it's one of the best value drinks you'll find. The only conceivable problem was the smell of the drink as everything else is brilliant. If your a milkshake fan you really must try this, it's really well worth trying.

About Yazoo milkshake/ and my addiction
Today I purchased a 1 litre bottle of chocolaty Yazoo Milkshake from Sainsbury for a great price of £0.97. The first thing that attracted me to this deliciously looking chocolaty drink was its sheer size, I am self confessed chocoholic, looking at this big bottle of chocolate made my mind "bing". On the shelf it sat proudly next to its friend's banana and strawberry. At first I wanted to pick up the strawberry shake as I was worried about sheer level of calories living in the Chocó shake, but like a real bad person I bought the Chocó shake. I knew as soon as I got my hands around this beauty I would seat in my car (at the Sainsbury's parking lot) drinking it down like Homer Simpson. And much to my friend's disbelief that's exactly what I did, I finished the whole bottle under 10 minutes. I hear you ask "did you share it with your friend", no Mam I did not!
The taste was very humbling and pleasing, although like every chocolate milkshake it does tend to leave a bitter after taste. The consistency of the milkshake was rather thick, almost like melted chocolate Ice cream; then again I suppose that's exactly what milkshake is. The Yazoo milkshake I bought wasn't the famous chilled type, I would like to think the chilled milkshake would hail better to my tongue. Strawberry milkshake seem to be the most favourable by my household, it has a much smoother taste then the banana or the chocolate.
The health factor
It appears this chocolate milkshake provides you with "all the goodness of diary" and its low in fat. However it isn't advisable to finish of the 1 litre bottle at once, this is a very common mistake made by people of my calibre. This bottle also contain no traces of artificial colours or sweeteners, it appears to be pure chocolate juice, hence the bitter after taste. It also contains calcium for strong bones and teeth. It also has vitamin B, which helps to promote healthy growth and it also has less than 5% added sugar, hmm I'm not sure if it's advisable for diabetes sufferers. Also for those health conscious mothers, it meets UK government regulations for use in schools.

Thank you for reading!
Yazoo is a milkshake which I just love to drink. You can get them in either chocolate, strawberry and banana which compared to other milkshakes like Frijj who have lots of flavours, Yazoos flavours are kinda limited.
The taste is very delicious and is very smooth with a slight creamy taste. Its not as thick as Frijj which I think it makes it less sickly. I could quite easily drink a big bottle in one day.
Its probally one of the healthiest milkshakes you can with with less than 5% added sugar and is also made with semi skimmed milk and is made with fat reduced cocoa powders, but it tastes that good you wouldnt of even known. Even with using semi skimmed milk it still produces the creamy taste full fat milk would.
Its great value for money as it costs around 90p at supermakets for a 1 litre bottle, compared to other milkshakes which cost that much for 500ml, you cant go wrong. If you went to places like newsagents then they could cost a little bit more.
In conclusion, Yazoo is a great milk shake for a great price and the taste is very nice.
If you find the Frijj milksahes way too thick and sickly and the McDonalds shakes too ice-creamy and Nesquik a little watery, then someting which sits proudly in the middle is the Yazoo range. Already mixed as a shake, you don't have to add anything to it, simply open, pour and drink. You can buy the Yazoo shakes in litre bottles or in smaller lunchbox sized bottles, which are ideal for children's packed lunches. A litre bottle usually costs around the pound mark.
The chocolate shake is my personal favourite, serving up a sublime blend of milk and cocoa. It is advisable to give it a little shake before drinking, as some sediment can gather and this will help disperse the shake. It will also give the shake some bubbles, which seems to make it more frothy and taste better! All aesthetics of course!
The chocolate taste is pretty good actually, it is not overtly rich, like the Frijj shakes, which means you can drink a whole glass quite keenly without feeling too bloated afterwards. The viscosity might be less intense than a Frigg shake, but this makes it a more refreshing drink. The cocoa taste is authentic enough to register, though not too bitter or too sweet.
I think these shakes are great to have as a casual drink, after a gym session or even to go on cereal in the mornings. The packaging will entice younger children, though the drink will also please adults, as the milk used has been skimmed to perfection, removing all heavy traces of fatty deposits, making it one of the healthier chocolate milks on the market.
The shake is well stocked in supermarkets, though I am hankering after a chcoolate orange or a mint version, that would really make my day! Yazoo is great in the summer and best served ice cold from the fridge.
Both my two daughters are ages two and four and just love milk they drink it all the time. I roughly go through about 3 bottles of 4 pints, that's roughly 12 pints of milk a week my greedy little monsters go through. To give them a bit of a different taste I bought this to see if they would like it.
The chocolate flavoured milk is made my the making Yazoo, not only do they sell chocolate milkshake but also strawberry, and banana. It comes in a 1 litre plastic brown bottle, with a screw cap lid which is easy to open and close and don't worry it doesn't leak either if tuned upside down if it is screwed on tight enough.
You can but the milkshake for around a £1 in most supermarkets like ASDA, TESCO, Morrison's, Simsbury's, and Somerfield's. It isn't all that hard to find and you can usually find it in the cooking section on the selves why it is here I have no idea but or you can find it in the fridge section where the milk is kept it sits just above the milk.
There are 70 calories per 100ml along with 1.5g of fat and 9.6g of sugar. So as you can see the alories aren't really all that bad but the sugae is quite high for my liking but ohhhh it taste so yummy.
This is my favourite type milkshake, I think the reason why I like it so much is because it tastes very chocolaty and also feels thick in mouth, it just taste so yummy. I always look forward to my first mouthful of the milkshake it tastes so refreshing and a nice little treat every now and then. My kids also love it and this chocolate one is their favourite one too. I would however recommend that it is put in the fridge long enough to feel cold when you pick the bottle up there is nothing worse than when you taste the taste of warm milk. I would rate this product a 10 out of 10 and would defiantly say that it is the best chocolate milkshake on the market.
I previously reviewed Fijj milkshake and I think It's about time to review our favourite chocolate drink which is Yazoo. We very much prefered light milkshakes, that's why we enjoyed Yazoo. Well for us, It's far lighter and better tasting than Frijj.
A milkshake that provide calcium for strong bones and teeth. It has Vitamin B that helps promote healthy growth. Does'nt have any artificial sweeteners, no colours and preservatives. Low in fat and less than 5% added sugar. It's also suitable for vegetarians.
A plastic bottle with a shiny label attached. It has a little brown screw top lid and a foil cover. This long-life milk product is easy to store and only has to be refridgerated after it's been opened.
A tangy chocolate experience, very rich and creamy but not sickening, unlike other milkshakes that makes me feel bloated.
NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION (per 100ml):
1.0g Saturated Fat
Most milkshakes contain a high amount of sugar, but Calorie wise this is far better.
Semi-skimmed Milk, Glucose- Fructose Syrup, Sugar, Fat- Reduced Cocoa Powder (1.1%), Stabilisers (Cellulose, Carrageenan), Caramel and Vanilla Flavourings
Added this information in case you are avoiding any allergic reaction.
1 litre 87p
It's pretty cheap If you compare with frijj that cost more than a pound for 500 ml. Another good thing about Yazoo is they offer a 1 litre bottle and you're getting extremely good value for money for a drink that taste better.
As we are family who love milkshakes, This one really fits our budget as well as the lightness and yummy taste that is utterly delicious. They also have variety of flavour to choose from, if you fancy banana or strawberry instead. The true fact that milkshake isn't exactly healthy, we have to drink it in moderation. Just like a tasty little treat every now and again!
I love Yazoo and often pick up a bottle on lunch at work for a nice treat.
Yazoo milkshakes are made by Campina and I have so far seen in the shops chocolate, strawberry and banana flavours.
The milkshakes come in plastic bottles which are therefore recyclable and have a paper sleeve with all the ingredients and calories etc on the back. The lids correspond with the flavour of the milkshake ie this particular one is brown in colour. It is also sealed with a foil seal which I often have to pull off using my teeth as cannot always get my hands round it!!
Yazoo is made with semi skimmed milk over 90% of the content in Yazoo is milk. Chocolate flavour Yazoo gets its chocolatey taste from fat reduced cocoa powder, plus vanilla flavouring and caramel which I did not expect to see!
You should always shake the bottle before consuming due to the fact sediment can form at the bottom so give it a good jigging about and it will even out the milkshake. This also gives it quite a few bubbles!! It is a lovely creamy milk chocolate colour.
The smell is somewhat creamy and very pleasant. Of course it smells chocolatey too which is why you bought it!!
The consistency is perfect. It is nothing like those thick drinks you can get, it is not watery either and is a happy balance. Therefore a small amount will not fill you up massively nor be too sickly at all, therefore I think perfect to drink with a meal.
The drink itself is lovely and smooth, no powdery effect to it, and tastes gorgeous, no sickly chocolatey taste it is actually quite light and enjoyable. Slightly creamy but not too creamy overall really strikes the right balance and very tasty indeed.
A 500g bottle of Yazoo gives you 70% of your recommended daily allowance of calcium and 95% of your RDA for Vitamin B12 so great to give to the little ones in lunchboxes!!!

Long life milk
It can be stored in the cupboard for up to 3months as it is long life milk but then needs to be kept in the fridge upon opening. I prefer to drink slightly chilled as it provides a more refreshing drink particularly in the hot summer months.
Small 200ml 4 packs are avaialble, 500ml and a litre bottles are available, the largest ones represent best value for money at about 88p. Very reasonable indeed. I have seen all varieties stocked in most supermarkets and many smaller shops so is widely available.
I give it 10 out of 10 quite happily as it is the most enjoyable milkshake going!!
