little too sweet. But good for home made


It is a good one for home made version of the hot chocolate. It is too sweet. The new version is not that much good as earlier. But can have as a back up.

Lovely treat in winter


Small amount 2 teaspoons of this drinking chocolate and a dash of milk is all you need. Comforting drink when it’s cold outside. Wrap your fingers around it and enjoy.

Purchased in July 2019 at Woolworths for $4.99.

Too sugary not hot chocolate


The taste of this product is way too sweet and tastes artificial. I’ve bought it previously when I was younger and it tasted better than it does now

Not enjoyable unfortunately.

Purchased in August 2019 at Woolworths for $3.20.

Was Good while it lasted


Used to be delicious and was my favourite but the flavour changed about two years ago and now it's pure trash like I hate it. Tastes worse than homebrand. Tastes cheap and sugary. Someone please tell me when it changes back cause I'm not wasting any more money trying it. Cadbury told me years ago it was a batch problem and it'd be back to normal soon. It's not, it's gross. I have an old tin with about 2 cups worth that I will keep for as long as I can.

Purchased in October 2018.

Average taste, horrible packaging


Once upon a time it was a great taste, now it’s mostly sugary, airy and if you notice, the foil top is getting lower and lower with reduced amount of contents

Purchased in June 2019 at ALDI.

This product is amazing, especially when paired with milo in a hot choccy! All the other reviews clearly don't make their hot choccies properly! This stuff is like heaven and if you want a perfect recipe I can supply you with that too.

- Mix 3 spoonfuls of milo with 3 spoonfuls of choccy powder
- Add a slash of hot water
- Mix well then add frothy milk to top up

This recipe is also great iced or for mochas and all you punks should buy!

Purchased in March 2019 at Woolworths for $4.00.

Bought this as I was expecting a Cadbury’s chocolate flavour and paid the extra $$ just for it but made it at home and taste worse than standard home brand coco powder. Stay away. Just buy some coco powder for literally 80% cheaper for the same taste.

Hero to zero


This used to be delicious but has recently changed. Now it’s disgusting. Is this Mondalez duping us with a crap replacement?

Changed it for the worst


Tastes like crap now, like the others said it's awful. I think there should be a law that makes companies announce when they change recipes for products

What happened to the taste?


I don't drink the hot chocolate per say but would always sprinkle it on my home made cappuccino's for a delightful coffee in the morning. Then i ran out and bought some more. I couldn't find the packet one i normally buy and got the new one in the round tin. And omg it's way too sweet...agggghhhhh

What's happened to it's taste


I've loved cadbury drinking chocolate for years but bought a new one today but it tastes awful! I tipped it out and made another one, it was just as bad as the first. The first thing I noticed was that it didn't desolve well in the hot water. I'm very disappointed. What's happened to it's flavour

Change in taste?


Used to really love Cadbury’s drinking chocolate however recently my family and I have noticed big a change in taste and smell, now we can’t stand it. Don’t know what the change was as all the ingredients and nutritional information is the same. Really disappointed as it was one of the few vegan chocolate drinks.



It's good because it is really cheap but also tastes quite nice but there are better powders for hot chocolate.

Good for its price


I bought this chocolate recently. The taste is good but not as good as the Lindt one which is slightly expensive compared to this. It melts well with hot milk. Overall its a good product for its pricing.

This is quality ?


Wow ! Drinking chocolate what an incredible product not to sweet just 'precise flavor.' To.... remind you to have another one next time to comfort you or and friends or family for a warm hot chocolate. Oh, try with a couple of marshmellows ! delicious next time I will share where to get the best marshmellows. Now, the tip is use a teaspoon per serve, instead of recommended tablespoon.

Very tasty drinking chocolate


I came across this drinking chocolate in the supermarket aisle and decided to give it a go. I've been using it for several months now and I find it very good. The taste is excellent - not as sweet as other drinking chocolates I've tried in the past. Also, it melts instantly in hot milk. Regarding cold milk, it takes a little longer for the powder to melt and you do have to struggle a little bit with the spoon. Overall - good product.
Tasty, comfortable package
Doesn't melt well in cold milk
