It's terrible! And doesn't even work properly
on 15 December 2013
I normally drink the powdered hot chocolate, but do like a good treat from Costa or similar.
This stuff has the Cadbury name on it - have Cadbury even TRIED it. It's terrible!
I wasted a whole box trying to work out what I must be doing wrong.
Attempt 1: Just followed the instructions and tasted it? Watery. So I looked at the chocolate pod left in the machine and it had about 3/4 of it left in it. Cut the pod open and poured into my drink. Made for an odd taste, so poured it out.
Attempt 2: Thought that the chocolate pod was maybe too cold, so ran it under the warm tap for a few minutes. Definitely made it a bit more fluid. Made the drink again and more of the chocolate came out, but was still rubbish. Too watery.
Attempt 3: Continuing on from attempt 2, I made sure the water container was totally full (in case it was the pressure). It wasn't.
Attempt 4: As for attempt 3, but I gave up and melted some chunks of chocolate in it too. Pfft. That's 4 chunks of chocolate i'm never getting back...
The rest I just kept trying again, but not really expecting anything great. It lived right down to my expectations.
Dear Cadbury - you really should taste this before putting your name to it.
