Fun Food Find #6

Hey hey fellow foodies! Today’s fun food find is a guilt free treat when you need just a tad bit of chocolate but don’t want anything too sweet.  Last week at Trader Joe’s I found this Cocoa Almond Cashew Beverage.  I think the title needs to be a little catchier, but it looked exactly like something I’d love with a short and pronounceable ingredient list.

Don’t compare it to Hersey’s or Ovaltine, because there’s a reason why kids are hooked on those sugar packed drinks.  This alternative is smooth and creamy with a subtle, not overbearing, chocolate taste.  In general, I like it. However, I think it’s even better warmed up like hot cocoa.

The Verdict: 8/10

Would I recommend it: Definitely- especially warmed up.  This would be an excellent choice for kids without giving them a sugar high.

Tim’s a HUGE chocolate milk fan, so this was not nearly as sweet as he had anticipated. When I asked if he wanted a second sip, he denied me with “I’m alright.”
