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.

Yes, always this price and my kids love it.
#2
Considering I used to buy my son the Options hot chocolate for £3.19, I'm saving loads!
#3
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?
#5

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.:{

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?
#21
Carrots grow outside where wild rabbits and my free roaming rabbit (and dog) will eat them.
The point I was making was that fruit will rot teeth especially sweet and acidic fruit like pineapple.
Anyway the deals about hot chocolate which if your kids will drink it is at a good price. Just down to personal taste and if your lucky your kids will prefer this to the expensive stuff. Worth a try at this price.

Have to agree.A lot of the Everyday Value produts are good but this isn't.Has a really strange taste to it.
It's always under 50p.I actually paid 47p when I bought it recently.
Better off buying the Cafe Blend Instant Hot Chocolate.It's around £1 but far better than this stuff.

Because Rabbits can't counteract the sugar/acid/whatever that causes the decay. A human can just eat some celery and drink water. Sorted.

Although, I've never heard of tooth decay from carrots.

Wouldn't a 'deal' also include something which is perceived as being very good value or a bargain (which is what this site is all about), regardless of whether the item is normally that price or not? Surely this site is here to let people know about things which are good value which they might not have been aware of?

Asda smart price hot chocolate is exactly the same price? Shall I post that too, and then start posting all the value supermarket products?

Fair enough if its an obscure shop, but I would have thought most people know about supermarket value brands.

My kids always have the ovalitine you add water too. How does this compare, is it worth a go?
#30
Try it it is the only way to know.

My kids also prefer Ovaltine
#31
I've tried this in the past and it seems excellent value. I've used it for hot chocolate drinks and the basis of chocolate milk shakes with ice cream and also cooking. The quality seems excellent and the value is clearly very good. I think the asda one is identical in taste isn't it or at least it used to be. Some smart price, everday value, sainbury's basics and whatever morrisons call their value range are sourced from the same supplier and even use identical packaging sometimes.

Well, I'm a little stupified at the furor a hot chocolate mention can make. Thanks to the positive comments. Can I point out my kids favourite foods are olives, raspberries, plums, avocados, cucumber, noodles, carrots and peas and I could go on...Balanced varied diet..everything in moderation...I just have a son who does not like milk and the only way I could get him to drink milk was to have a small teaspoon of chocolate powder in a bit of hot water topped up with milk. That and porridge for breakfast help get calcium in him. Regarding it being the normal price, does it matter that it's always that price? As someone kindly pointed out, any deal posted that saves someone else money is worth posting. Constructive criticism is appreciated, just not silly comments. Also I don't have an Asda near me, that's why I've only posted a Tesco deal! Anyway, 1 teaspoon of this hot chocolate with alot of milk once a day is working just fine. Thanks Tesco.
#33
I don't know what it is about Tesco value stuff but most of it is just horrible... I wouldn't say the same about Sainsburys basic or asda's value range - The Sainsburys basic hot chocolate is much nicer than this but costs 20p more...

Cold from me - this stuff tastes like sautéed loft insulation so not a good deal at any price - unless there's a use for it other than drinking that I'm unaware of....

Milk isn't a good source of calcium.

Get Yeovalley (sp?) 100% organic yoghurt instead.
