Product Description

Flavor: Milk Chocolate | Size: 1.5 lbs

Certified Organic Instant Hot Cocoa Mix by Now Foods 1.5 lbs Powder Certified Organic Instant Hot Cocoa Low Fat Rich Milk Chocolate Taste With a history that dates back to the 1500's hot cocoa has come a long way. Over the years this historic drink has made its mark on civilizations from all over the world. The earliest version was pioneered by the Aztecs served cold and much different than the beverage we enjoy today. In its most primitive days roasted cocoa beans were added to a mixture of wine and crushed chili peppers. During the 18th century European chocolate houses were becoming extremely popular. It was there that British locals began adding steamed milk to their chocolate and drinking it as a dessert beverage. Shortly thereafter cocoa powder was invented by the Dutch making it easier to prepare the drink. Today hot cocoa is enjoyed by people young and old from every walk of life. NOW Certified Organic Instant Hot Cocoa puts an organic twist on one of the world's most time hon

This is the best tasting cocoa I've ever used.
dolfen
So, all in all, I'm very happy with this product as a safety device, to tide me over when I run out of milk or honey or whatever.

This cocoa has a very rich, less sweet chocolate taste.

I'll say right off the bat that I prefer their pure cocoa (not a mix, just cocoa). It costs about the same and is very, very good, rich thick flavour, wonderful. But I decided to try this thing too - why? Because you don't need other ingredients to make it. Regular cocoa, you need milk, honey, and so on. Now and then I run out of milk, and then what? Till I buy more, I can't have my cup of hot cocoa! Now that's injustice, so I'm gonna keep a can of this stuff here on hand for when I'm out of ingredients, 'cause this one's got everything in it and you only need water.

I just tried it: it's not equal to regular cocoa that you mix yourself -- it's a bit too sweet, and it does not fully dissolve in water. However, it is still quite good, and even though it's a mix, it doesn't have any evil chemistry in it (to compare, check out an instant cocoa box next time you're shopping, you'll be amazed).

So, all in all, I'm very happy with this product as a safety device, to tide me over when I run out of milk or honey or whatever. I do not plan to fully switch to it; mostly I will continue to use the NOW pure cocoa powder. While I'm here, I feel I have to say that I've bought a lot of different NOW stuff (cocoa, vitamins, glycerin, etc.) and have nothing but praise for this company: they got the right stuff at the right price. Full five-star experience so far with them (and the seller I usually get it from, something like PureFormula, who delivers very quickly). I know this sounds like I'm a paid shill, well, for what it's worth -- they didn't pay me to say this. Just think it's a good idea to share not only bad experiences but good ones too.

PS. Another thing to know is that it runs out much faster than the normal powder -- because you need two tablespoons to make a cup (regular cocoa takes a teaspoon or two).

Flavor Name: Milk ChocolateSize Name: 1.5 lbs Verified Purchase
This was a decent price for 1.5 lbs. of organic hot chocolate mix. That's why I gave it a try. The flavor is good, I must say. It has a watery, sweet, light-chocolatey flavor akin to what you can expect from a cheap brand like Nestle, but not necesarrily a bad taste... it's comforting. Four stars on the flavor. However, the mix DOES NOT DISSOLVE WELL. For some reason, no amount of stirring will prevent a layer of flakey milk bits floating slimily around in the bottom of your mug. So... If you want a decent price for an organic, natural hot cocoa with acceptable but not outstanding flavor, and you are also willing to put up with milk flakes floating around in your mug, then this is a good choice.

The hot chocolate mixes at the store are so disappointing. The ingredients in them are absolutely horrible. I don't want to fill my body with unnatural garbage just to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. It seemed like the very few I could find that had decent ingredients had to be mixed with milk. I don't want to bother with that. This one is wonderful. It has all recognizable ingredients in it and can be mixed with hot water. Tastes delicious! I will definitely order it again!

This mix is a thousand times better than the store bought garbage like Swiss Miss or Nestles. Most cocoa mixes, like the ones mentioned, are heavy on sweetness and not so much chocolate. The sugar overpowers the chocolate taste, so you end up with watery overly, sweet cocoa. This cocoa has a very rich, less sweet chocolate taste. It makes the best cup of cocoa I have ever tasted.

This is a delicious tasting hot cocoa mix. It's free of trans fatty acids and my family enjoys it. It's creamy enough for me, but maybe not for someone else. All I can say is that I like it.

Was looking for a good deal on an organic product - this was it. Good taste, great value. Use it to make drinking my green superfood palatable. Would highly recommend.

This is the best tasting cocoa I've ever used. In addition its organic therefore no fears of GMO's, growth hormones or other artificial ingredients.

Flavor Name: Milk ChocolateSize Name: 1.5 lbs Verified Purchase
I love hot chocolate. It is my morning warm/hot drink (I don't like coffee). Every work day, I have a hot chocolate. I know hot chocolates. Recently, I've decided to move away from main stream Swiss Miss type chocolates due to the ingredients I can't pronounce.

I wanted this hot chocolate to be my new favorite, but as others have said, it doesn't fully dissolve in 190* water. It has a consistency like there is a starch thickening it, so gravy like. And it's grainy/slimy. The flavor isn't too sweet nor to bitter, so if it weren't for the consistency I could consider sticking with this brand, but I can't swallow the slimy. I might finish this canister off... and I might not either.

Sorry, but I would skip this one.
