Extra Special Blonde Style Hot Chocolate (Asda) By @Cinabar

Extra Special Blonde Style Hot Chocolate (Asda)

I would like to apologise for the time dedicated to hot chocolate on this blog, it is my favourite thing. It is currently on season and I am finding myself buying enough stocks of new drinks to last all year. Don’t worry, I do drink hot chocolate all year I just hadn’t realised I buy it all now and then use it up the rest of the time!

The latest edition to my collection is Asda Extra Special Blonde Style Hot Chocolate. Blonde hot chocolate is very on trend at the minute, and I hope it lasts longer than the Ruby chocolate of a few years ago. I had a look at the tub and read the ingredients on the back, which showed that it was white chocolate flavoured powder with caramel flavouring, which I guess is what it is. It's just not as interesting sounding as the phrase ‘blonde chocolate’. I added some to the hot milk and found it stirred in nicely and quickly. The drink was very pale, definitely more on the white chocolate side than the blonde chocolate side in colour.

I gave the drink a sip and it was sweet, soothing and very much white chocolate flavoured with a hint of caramel or toffee-like flavour. I chose not to put cream on top though as thought it would be a bit rich. I have a sweet tooth, so I was drawn to the flavours, but this was quite near my upper limit. it was quite strong in taste too, which I hadn’t been expecting from the colour, but ultimately it is a good soothing drink and I look forward to having more of it.
