Mars have recently launched a range of hot chocolates in convenient treat sized pouches. They offer a fun and flexible hot chocolate range which allows you to make the drink the way you like it - drink it cold, drink it hot, add milk or add water. The new pouched range includes Mars hot or cold, Galaxy hot or cold, Milky Way Magic Stars with added chocolate pieces, Galaxy Ripple with added chocolate pieces, Galaxy Caramel for milk or water, and Maltesers for milk or water.
Everyone in the Grocery Gems household was especially excited to try the new Milky Way Magic Stars Hot Chocolate!
It has solid chocolate stars (mini sized) within the chocolate powder. These basically melt as soon as the hot water is added and ensure the Magic Stars Hot Chocolate is extra chocolately. The flavour is very sweet, the sweetest of the bunch, but it still has a lovely rich chocolate taste too. This is my children's new favourite hot chocolate by far!
There is also a more grown up version - the Galaxy Ripple Hot Chocolate with real Ripple Pieces within the hot chocolate powder. This is just divine! Galaxy is my go-to brand for hot chocolate and this Ripple version is super chocolately! Again, the added chocolate pieces just seem to add an extra boost of flavour.
The Galaxy Caramel Hot Chocolate is one that can be made with milk or with just water. Useful for making a quick hot chocolate or for when you only have access to a kettle, but it's perfect for using with milk too. This drink has a wonderful flavour from the start, it really is like a caramel filled chocolate masquerading as a hot chocolate. It's my personal favourite from this range.
I've been buying Galaxy hot chocolate for awhile now and, as I mentioned before, it's my favourite brand for hot chocolate. I love the fact that this new pouched Galaxy Chocolate Drink can be drunk hot or cold, very useful if some members of the family prefer milk shakes over hot chocolate, as there is no need to buy a separate product.
The classic Mars Chocolate Drink can also be used hot or cold. This is a chocolate and caramel flavoured drink which offers a twist on the usual hot chocolate or milkshake flavours. My eldest son loves this one as now he can make his favourite bottled milkshake at home.
The Maltesers Hot Chocolate is also flexible in that it can be made with milk or water. This has always been one of my kids' favourite hot chocolates. They love the mellow chocolate flavour mixed with a sweet malty edge. It's especially lovely as an evening drink.
The new pouched range is available from Asda and Tesco for £1.99.
