Review: The smell is delicious, like rich dark chocolate. Tasting it, again it’s like dark chocolate, but without the sugar. The peppermint blend lends a mild sweetness, without it getting sickly. In fact, it tastes very much like drinking After 8s, but without the calories. It’s wakeful and bright in your mouth, and would make a great alternative to your morning coffee or evening hot chocolate.
It’s also caffeine-free, because it only uses the cocoa shells. However, be aware it does contain a central nervous system stimulant called theobromine. Luckily, this stimulant is thought to be good for you, often used to treat high blood pressure and to prevent tooth decay; but you need to be mindful that it could make you feel energised, so you might still not want to drink this at night. The other thing to bear in mind is the price – but as an occasional treat, we think it’s worth splurging.
Best time of year to drink this: Autumn / winter.
Best time of day to drink this: Mornings and afternoons.
