If you prefer dark chocolate over milk chocolate then you will enjoy this cocoa mix. There is a fuller and more smooth chocolate flavor than being heavy on the sugar which is common with most other cocoa mixes. Also, no bitter chocolate taste with this one.

Awesome, awesome hot chocolate! Bonus -- it's lactose free! Just requires that you use heated milk/soymilk/almond milk etc... instead of water. Your choice of "milk" product.

Now, for those of you who cannot find this after buying a can, or want to save some dough -- it's simple to make yourself. Just two ingredients (and much much cheaper)...

Based on the ingredients on the side of the can, and the sugar content, the recipe (in ratios) is:
-30% cocoa (by weight) -- I used Hershey's, but generic works fine. Hershey's Dark is fine too.
-70% powdered sugar (by weight)

For example to refill the empty 269 gram metal can use:
-80 grams of cocoa
-189 grams of powdered sugar

Mix it in a zip lock bag and you're good to go -- same instructions as on the can! 4 Tbsp per cup of heated milk.

The taste is exactly the same, and very easy to make in huge batches if you need a lot of hot cocoa for a party. Enjoy!

I fancy myself something of a hot chocolate connoisseur; I particularly love dark chocolate and I was very excited to try this. However, I was incredibly disappointed by the taste. The taste was far less rich and dark than other premium hot chocolates I've tried such as Ghirardelli and Starbucks, and I didn't even find the chocolate taste as strong as in the grocery store brands like Nestle. It also had a vaguely minty taste that I didn't care for at all. I threw it out after using less than 1/4 of it, what a waste of money.

Delicious and fabulous packaging. Makes a great Christmas gift. Funny story- my 80 pound Labrador got into some gifts when I was out and he was particularly interested in this! He tried and tried but could not break into the tin, thank goodness! So, their packaging has, accidentally, been animal tested and passed!!!

Don't neglect buying this mix, it is really just as tasty as the reviews state. Especially if you top it off with a little whipped cream and a dash of fresh nutmeg, it's the best.

My wife bought me this for Christmas because I love sipping chocolate and hot chocolate. Maybe I got a bad batch, but every time I use this mix I'm reminded of play dough. It's got a strange flavor mixed in with the kind of weak chocolate taste. I'm a dark chocolate snob, so this was a big let down. The packaging is beautiful though.

I like dark chocolate cocoa, but for some reason this stuff didn't do it for me. There was some other flavor in there that was strong enough to distract from the chocolate. It didn't mix well. It is too sweet. Nice can. I tossed out the cocoa and kept the can.

I bought this for my sweetie for Valentine's day and she was very pleased. Being frugal in nature she checked the ingredients and noticed the high sugar content and how expensive this product is buy the pound compared to mixing cocoa and sugar to make your own. I do like that this product requires mixing with milk as it adds flexibility for the fat content of milk used and allows other non-cows milk products but this is yet more reason why it is is so easy to make you own compared to the "just add water" types. Again, this made a good present and comes in a pretty tin but for my wife who's favorite chocolate is still a good ol' Hershey bar, I don't think I'd buy it again.
