Online Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate hot cocoa reviews are largely positive. At Staples, for example, consumers report drinking it in the morning rather than coffee and they crow about the taste. Other Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate hot cocoa reviews at Epinions say it's delicious, creamy, and smooth, and at Sam's Club consumers tell of hoarding it in preparation for the warmer months when the retailer doesn't stock it. But elsewhere Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate hot cocoa reviews complain about the recent addition of the artificial sweetener sucralose in the canister and K-cup versions, saying the taste is off, too sweet, and lacking in what had been chocolate richness.
The formulas for Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate cocoa mix vary slightly, depending on the packaging, but the lead components are always sugar and corn syrup; the ingredients also include nonfat dry milk, sometimes whey and sometimes sucralose. There are 140 calories in a single serving. The milk chocolate version of the mix is available in single-serve packets and K-cups, and in bulk canisters.
