Today's Review: Gü Hot Chocolate

'Tis the season, and there's nothing better than curling up on a warm Winter's evening with a nice mug of hot chocolate. But, y'know, all this home made hot chocolate business can be a bit daunting. Do we go for powder, or flakes? Mix it with water, or milk? Well, milk, obviously. But I've always found mixing a hot chocolate perfectly to be pretty difficult. Whether it's spilling some on the side during the initial mixing, some kind of messy expansion in the microwave, or powdery remnants on the bottom of the mug, there's always something not quite right. But Gü have got us all covered. This hot chocolate comes pre-mixed, albeit chilled. So all it takes is a couple of minutes in the microwave, and you have yourself a residue-free mug of hot chocolate.

I've had a few Gü puddings in my time, and I've loved every one. It's nice to see they've carried on that quality into this hot chocolate. It's fantastically chocolatey, dark but creamy, and with a thickness to it that's just right. It would probably get quite sickly if you go for more than a mugful, but on its own it simply makes for an indulgent chocolatey treat. Even if you don't want to warm it up, it can drunk as a very naughty chocolate shake. It's good at all temperatures, but after this chilly day, it certainly warmed me up fresh from the microwave. I'm not sure there's much else to say. Gü have provided a carton of fantastic tasting hot chocolate that's easy to prepare. Just try it, you won't regret it.

My rating: 5/5
