Drinking chocolate never tasted so good when you try out these products from Utah based Cocoa Metro.
Ah chocolate milk.
Does it get anymore comforting?
Even when it's not great, it's still good.
But when it actually is great, woah. Mind blowing woah!
Before I was adult I had my share of chocolate milk, either store brand, Nestle, or whole milk with syrup added to it. While I liked those things, none of ever blowed my mind. Until I was an adult and sought out the best. I have found one of the best - Cocoa Metro Belgian Chocolate Milk from my local Whole Foods Market.
Who is Cocoa Metro?
The company behind this life changing chocolate treat formed out of a love for chocolate. The company founders, Mike and Lizzy are chocolate fanatics. So much so that they planned vacations around promixity to cocao plantations.
That is a serious foodie.
I have to admit I have planned vacations around food, actually pretty much every vacation I do has something to do with food (ex. trip to California to eat Ojai Pixies off the tree).
Why is Their Milk So Good?
Simple. The chocolate. This isn't like putting syrup in your mouth, this like drinking chocolate. So rich. So chocolaty. Not too sweet at all. Just perfectly good to the last drop (and when you drink this stuff, that last drop comes way too fast). Loved, loved, loved it!
The milk contains cocoa, vanilla, real sugar - not HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), milk of course. In order to keep the cocoa from not settling in a clump at the bottom of the bottle, carob bean gum is added. It makes up less than 1% of the contents of the milk.
Carob bean gum also called locust bean gum is derived from the seeds of a carob tree. It doesn't add any flavor to the milk and was chosen as an alternative to carrageenan, which some consumers are concerned about. Learn more about carraggenan.
Back to the fun stuff. This chocolate milk is worth seeking out especially if you all you ever known is store brand or the popular national brands. Cocoa Metro Belgian Chocolate Milk is so good, that a picture of it should appear to the word decadent in the dictionary.
Let's look at some other products from Cocoa Metro.

Made from the same quality cocoa as their chocolate milk, this powder is not alkalized, therefore adds more of a chocolate punch.
This hot cocoa has such a chocolate flavor that it goes by Drinking Chocolate. It's simply that - drinking chocolate! There are chunks of chocolate in this stuff.
