Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate Review
The panel's consensus opinion of Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate was "blah." Tasters found it somewhat watery and bland, with more sugar than chocolate flavor.
Despite the name, participants in our tasting panel did not find Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate to be all that rich. "It smells chocolaty," they said during the hands-on Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate review, but follow-through to a "full chocolate flavor" is lacking. Tasters commented on the relatively creamy texture even as some said it seemed a bit watery. They also stated that the sweetness overwhelmed the chocolate. Some online Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate reviews asserted that the appearance of sucralose, an artificial sweetener, in the formula is responsible for a bitter and hypersweet flavor. At Sam's Club one consumer complains that the powder doesn't mix easily into the water.
Most reviews posted on the web are more forgiving. At Amazon one Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate review reveals a preference for this brand specifically because it's not big in the flavor department. Others at the site say the taste is sufficiently rich and satisfying, especially on a cold winter night. Kids go for this treat big time, according to comments at Meijer, as do adults who want to limit their caffeine intake.
Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate contains just 80 calories, making it a draw for consumers looking for a low-calorie, but not strictly diet, hot cocoa mix. The three main ingredients are sugar, corn syrup, and vegetable oil, with sucralose listed last; it also contains dairy product solids. Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate comes in canisters as large as 47 ounces and also in boxes of single-serving packets. Additional flavor options include mini-marshmallow, dark chocolate, chocolate caramel, and chocolate mint; the "wellness" versions include seven vitamins and minerals, no sugar added, and fat free.
At a starting price of just 10 cents a cup, this is the cheapest brand we tasted. But spend a few pennies more, our panelists concluded, and you'll experience a richer chocolate high.
