Hillside Hot Cocoa- Rich Chocolate
MMMM self-heating take 2!
So I made it back to Kroger to get the plain hot chocolate version (remember the marshmallow was pretty vile).
Let me tell you the plain hot chocolate version is much, much, better then the marshmallow. To be honest it is no better or no worse then then instant cocoa package made with water rather then milk ever is. It's on the sweet side but not as overwhelmingly as the marshmallow version.
The real highlight here is the self heating can (this can worked perfectly and heated in under 10 minutes) it was nice to have a decent can of hot cocoa waiting for me with no more effort then popping a top and turning over a can. There is also no clean up other then tossing the can.
No, this is no substitute for a good cup of homemade cocoa (or a Starbucks Brevy Hot Chocolate) but if you are looking for something fast and easy or to take on outdoor excursions this is a fantastic option.
I am going to have to give the coffee's a try!
