Hans Sloane Drinking Chocolate


We are a family of chocolate lovers (especially me, I must admit), and the children are quite the "hot chocolate" connoisseurs. We try and incorporate a delicious comforting mug of chocolate into our family traditions wherever we can, particularly at Christmastime when we enjoy our "snowman soup", so imagine my our delight at the opportunity to try out chocolate actually MADE for drinking - not "hot chocolate", but true drinking chocolate.

The Hans Sloane Drinking Chocolate range of products, available in Smooth Milk, Rich Dark and Natural Honey flavours, are pure beads of top quality chocolate, designed to melt perfectly with milk or water (or, if you prefer, a combination of both) to give you a pure drinking chocolate experience.

"Inspired by the seventeenth century chocolate pioneer, Sir Hans Sloane, all Hans Sloane Drinking Chocolate products are lovingly hand crafted and come from a truly British and historic pedigree.
All Hans Sloane flavours are made from unique 100% chocolate beads individually shined for 3-4 hours and hand packed, reflecting Hans Sloane's passion for chocolate perfection".

We tried out the Rich Dark, and Natural Honey flavours and I have to say that I was very impressed. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no bitter after taste as you might expect from a pure drinking chocolate, it was simply a rich & luxurious flavour, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.


My youngest three children were happy to try out the flavours for themselves, of course using the biggest mugs that they could find in the cupboard. H chose the Rich Dark, and L & E opted for Natural Honey. As a pre-bedtime treat, I made up their drinks using the recommended three heaped tablespoons of chocolate beads (about 45g) together with some hot milk, and they all gathered around the table to enjoy their drinks together in satisfied silence (probably my favourite part...), and three empty mugs told me all I need to know about their opinion of it!

Hans Sloane Drinking Chocolates are available online via the website, and in Waitrose and Tesco stores nationwide, RRP £4.99.
