Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate Review

I've had my eye on this for a while, so imagine my delight when I found it in a shop in Belfast on Saturday afternoon? Strangely, I had been talking about it the night before and was planning on ordering it online as it's not very common to find this type of American food in any of the stores I use. I'd had absolutely delicious hot chocolate whilst in Las Vegas in November (so sad that I asked for hot chocolate in the casinos) and I'd been thinking about it ever since. I looked online and this appeared to be the most popular brand so I made a mental note to make a purchase. I tried a sachet as soon as I was home that night and it was perfect. I usually make mine with hot milk, but you can also add water, just a matter of personal preference. I added a little bit of the powder at a time and stirred it in with milk. The sachet is pretty full, I'd say it's around 5 to 6 tablespoons. I like mine nice and chocolaty, but if you don't, then I'd say this one sachet could do about three people and it's still very tasteful. Fortunately for me, none of my family really liked it that much as they prefer their drink to be weaker, so I get the whole box (10 sachets) to myself! It has a malt taste to it, so if you don't like that then this might not be for you.

They also sell it with mini marshmallows already in the sachet, another with even more marshmallows, one with coloured marshmallows, french vanilla flavour, dark sensations, and mocha cappuccino. Quite a variety to choose from! Highly recommend.


  1. Did you happen to get it in the shop beside Utopia? Because I think that's about the only shop I know what sells American food. They do the most delicious chocolate pretzels!

    1. Sawyers? I get a lot of stuff from in there, but there's new shop that opened literally around the corner from it. It's at the side entrance of primark and it's a big cafe, but I saw mountain dew through the window and I went in and it's actually amazing! I think they have the biggest selection of American goodies that I've seen in belfast. Flipz pretzels? So good!
