Hot chocolate and cold evenings are a great combination. If I had a fireplace, I would add sitting by the fireplace to that sentence, but since I don’t have one, I am more than happy with a cup of creamy hot chocolate to warm me up.
We were sent a selection of new chocolate drinks and treats to try and they are so tasty. The new thick shakes combine the confectionary flavours of Mars, Maltesers and Galaxy Caramel in a thick creamy milkshake. I love caramel, so Galaxy Caramel Thick Shake is my favourite, while hubby prefers chocolate, so he’s a fan of Mars Thick Shake.
If you can’t live without caffeine, you will love Galaxy Mocha Latte. Galaxy Cafe’s much loved iced coffee range has been rebranded Galaxy Iced Coffee Mocha Latte. The new creamy drinks, which mix smooth Galaxy chocolate with the rich intensity of coffee beans, come in either Single Shot or Double Shot. I like the single shot variety mid-morning and the double shot one in the afternoon, with a biscuit or two.
My favourite drink is hot chocolate, made from the comfort of my own home. Galaxy Hot Chocolate has a fresh new look and more chocolate taste with more cocoa added to the smooth and creamy Galaxy Instant Hot Chocolate and Galaxy Frothy Top Hot Chocolate.
I usually make hot chocolates with milk, but I didn’t even need milk with Galaxy Hot Chocolate, I simply added the powder to boiling water for a lovely hot chocolate. Galaxy Frothy Top Hot Chocolate makes the frothiest hot chocolate I’ve ever had, extremely tasty and satisfying.
The squeezy chocolate spreads are a lovely addition to the range, we tried Galaxy Hazelnut Spread which is hubby’s favourite, while little man loves Milky Way Stripey Spread, it is a chocolate and skimmed milk duo. I’m not sure which one I like the best, so I have one piece of toast with Galaxy Hazelnut Spread and another one with Milky Way Stripey Spread, yummy!
Overall, we really liked the brand new chocolatey drinks and treats from Galaxy and Mars. The Thick Shakes and Galaxy Mocha Latte are convenient and ideal as a on-the-go drink, while Galaxy Hot Chocolate is perfect to warm up at home after a busy day, accompanied by Squeezy Chocolate Spread over warm toast.
