Yazoo Chocolate Milkshake
Advantages: Rich. Chocolatey. Feels like a treat. High in calcium.
Disadvantages: Calories. Lid leaks.
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.
Summary: I enjoy it.
