I've been getting this for a while and I think this is just the normal price. Very tasty and you just add hot water, so no need to fuss over heating up milk. Handy for the kids. It's a big tub and lasts for ages.

Considering I used to buy my son the Options hot chocolate for £3.19, I'm saving loads!

I bought this and my mum loved it and asked which gravy it was so she could buy some. She was shocked when I showed her.

Cocoa content?

Ingredients

Sugar,Whey Powder ,Maltodextrin ,Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder (9%) ,Vegetable Oil ,Thickener (Guar Gum) ,Milk Proteins ,Stabiliser (Potassium Triphosphate)

I bet that's the exact legal minimum to call it "chocolate". And with the cocoa butter removed too!

I'm quite partial to this myself, much prefer it over Asda's basic hot chocolate as well.....Tesco one has slight chocolate/malted milk flavour where as Asda's just tastes like cheap chocolate - dunno how you get this to last forever OP especially with kids, when I buy it for my own use the tub is done after 3-4 days and thats only making 3 cups a day.

Not a fan of Tesco here so the fact that this never scans correctly is an added bonus, always amuses me taking this to the self checkout and watching the Tesco staffs utter disgust at having to walk 4 metres to a till and input a code to get it to scan.:{

Why not skip the middle man and just buy cyanide? It would be a lot quicker.

These sort of deals always bring out the food snobs or if kids are mentioned the "i wouldn't give this to my kids" acting like they are the perfect parent.

No, you have it all contorted. This doesn't have anything to do with being a 'food snob', as you have indicated. This is to do with preserving my short and long-term health. Anything this cheap, that isn't a fruit or vegetable, is going to be be bad for you. It's as simple as that.

And how did you come to that conclusion? have you considered that per portion most fruit contain more sugar than a glass of coke? If this product was re-packaged with a price 10 times higher would you consider it "better than the cheap stuff"? can you prove this product is any worse for your health than a product 10x its price?

'Most fruit' doesn't contain more sugar than a 'glass of coke'. Plus, the sugar in fruit is natural, unlike the sugar in coke. You're probably one of those people who believe that calories matter. See beyond the labels.

Avocado is an extremely healthy fruit, but contains quite a lot of fat. Does that mean you should avoid it? No. An intelligent person is able to view situations objectively.

I avoid products such as this, regardless of the price. However, it's clear that the expensive product will be "healthier" for you. In the same way that the more expensive meat is better for you.

Jury is still out on the sugar in fruit thing. Sugar is sugar, it still rots teeth.
It's just healthier to lose your teeth to fruit acids and sugars than chocolate etc.
How can carrots cause tooth decay in rabbits but not in humans? Dentists in other countries still warn on fruit damage but over here they don't want kids usung it as an excuse to not eat fruit.

Best instant hot chocolate. Freezing cold deal, it's always this price.

Maybe because carrots are not a rabbits natural food source?
