Looking back at our reviews, we realised that we've been telling people how this product and that product will be coupled well with tea and coffee, but have certainly not been showing enough love to the one hot beverage we love so much -- hot chocolate.
At the top of our list is Caotina, a Swiss premium chocolate drink brought to us by none other than Dr Georg Wander -- the very same creator who gave us Ovomaltine. Knowing that, you can't expect anything but amazing and, nutritious too. You'll be surprised to know that this chocolatey treat is in fact enriched with seven vitamins and two minerals including calcium. It's a win-win for us hot chocolate lovers!
Available in three varieties - surfin, blanc, and noir (original milk chocolate, white chocolate, and dark chocolate), this extremely smooth mixture makes your perfect cocoa drink, melting evenly into a silky consistency, no matter mixed with hot or cold milk. What makes it so rich and tasty are the ingredients of 7% real Swiss chocolate along with a combination of 19% reduced-fat cocoa powder. The thing we love most about this Caotina drink is how smooth it is on the palette, with the fine and delicate chocolate powder swiftly melting into the milk, looking as though it came in the package in liquid form. Got to give Caotina some credit here, because it's really quite a disappointment when you see chunks of powder forming inside your drink as residue, giving you unpleasant surprises when you sip it down.
By now you should already be convinced of the pleasure a mug of heavenly Caotina can provide you. If you're unsure how exactly to go about making your perfect warm cup of hot chocolate (and if you can't read German), simply place three teaspoons of Caotina chocolate powder in a cup of hot or cold milk (about 200ml), stir thoroughly, then enjoy!
