    I put milk in mine. The box usually tells me to.

    I always buy quite expensive hot chocolate (image below) and always do it in a pan using milk, no cream on top. Those instant ones using water are crap.



    This stuff is amazing.

    I don’t, because they’re all fucking rotten.

    All chocolate flavoured things that aren’t chocolate are shite. These drinks and ice cream being the biggest offenders.

    Hot chocolate goes on the list with Chocolate Milkshake and Chocolate Icecream.

    It's shit, It doesn't taste like chocolate and nobody that doesn't have the menopause on their timeline should be drinking it.

    One of the machines at work does a legitimately nice hot chocolate, to be fair. Only that machine, though.

    I don't mind it but I can't remember the last time I had it. I'd rather just have a cup of tea and some actual chocolate.

    My Mrs drinks the Options shite when she's on a diet. My daughter might - MIGHT - have had one. I'm unsure. She doesn't like chocolate milkshake, so I'm hopeful she's wired correctly. My boy hasn't tried it but does like Chocolate Icecream. He lives in the garden now.

    Hot chocolate is (on the whole) pretty rotten, but Iím not having that chocolate gelato doesnít taste like chocolate. At least not the good kind, which is like eating a smooth, cold, melted chocolate bar.

    I never minded Cacolat or whatever it was called on those long lost sojourns to Catalonia.

    When I make it for the kids it's milk in with the powder to make a paste, then hot water, and probably then more milk to make it drinkable for a child. SO either 2 or 3. Hot chocolate is shit.

    None that I've tried. Perhaps the £20 per scoop 'Gelato' the sell in Rome is different. The stuff we get here is shite.

    And an ice cream shop in St. Louis sold this vegan chocolate icecream made with coconut milk that might have halved my testosterone level, but it was absolutely incredible.

    No. Never been, but I got fisted at the McDonald's in Antalya airport. They put the prices up without the currency.

    "Big mac meal 16.00". I assumed Lira, it was Euros. I spent 45€ feeding the 3 of us and only found out when we got home.

    Johny Foreigner will string you up every time.

    Above a certain (low) price, there is probably a strong inverse relationship between price and quality. Iíd venture to suggest you ended up at the worst among the tourist traps aimed at daft Americans, and they dun got you gud.

    Why is it shite, Giggles?

    You can, but it is too sweet for that.

    Because even better quality chocolate ice cream is still chocolate ice cream.

    Oooh, brownies are a different story. I've had some amazing brownies in my life but I've also had some bland ones. It's entirely down to who makes them.

    Yeah, I'm not having Brownies included. There's a huge quality gulf with them. They can be dry and shite but they can also be soft, gooey and all sorts of amazing.

    Hot chocolate has its moments when it's just fantastic. All milk, of course.
