The Quest for the Perfect Instant Hot Chocolate

I am on a search for the ultimate instant hot chocolate.

Hot Chocolate and cocoa drinks made with milk are mostly lovely, but on the other side of the scales, hot chocolates made with hot water are mostly poor. However I'm lazy, and can't be bothered mixing up hot milk drinks at work. Therefore I am searching for the best instant chocolate drink.
My favourite instant so far is Aero, which is a cut above the others I’ve tried, but if you know of one better, let me know and I will give it a go.

First up then is one from someone at work -

The Co-operative Fairtrade Low Calorie Hot Chocolate
The Co-operative Fairtrade Low Calorie Hot Chocolate.

It mixes up better than Skinny Cow, but still takes a fair bit of stirring. The drink is dark, and rich in colour and looks very appealing. The flavour is quite grown up, it’s not as sweet as it could be, but it does have an almost wheat like after tone.
Somebody at work described it as having similarities in flavour to Mars Milkshake, which I think is fair, although Mars is sweeter and more chocolaty. It’s a nice product, but as I have a sweet tooth, it doesn't beat Aero.

This is the kind of Hot Chocolate (or HoCho) that you can drink 3 or 4 of in the same day as if it were tea or coffee.

Most of the other instants are HoChos that you would be hard pushed to manage more than one of before inducing a sugar coma.
