Kids Love Cold Stone Hot Cocoa - #coldstonecocoa

More check-ins at Walmart Supercenter #4540

I was recently asked to try out Cold Stone's new Cocoa mix thanks for Collective Bias and Cold Stone. To be completely honest, I had no idea that Cold Stone even had Cocoa mix until I was given this opportunity but seeing how much my family loves Cold Stone Creamery... I thought this would be the Cocoa for us!

I had a little of a difficult time finding the product at first and quickly came to find that I needed to go to a Walmart Supercenter to find it as the regular Walmarts did not have the product in store as of yet.

In going to the Super Walmart I found three varieties prominently displayed and easy to find as they had it right in aisle one! The only variety that they did not carry was the Dark Chocolate (DARN!), so we ended up getting one of the milk chocolate and one with the marshmallows.

I wanted to get these when I did as I knew we were going to have a house full of kids today and we wanted to truly get their opinion.

One thing that I was a bit confused about when I did put the cocoa together was that it mentioned that we had to put 6oz of water per packet, but when I did this, we only had water in about 1/4 of the coffee cup. So I decided to throw away convention and double it (actually a bit more than that) and add a second packet of cocoa into a number of the adult cups. Soon I found that I was going to have to cut back or I would run out of cocoa, so we also did some with 1.5 packets and some with only 1 packet.

What I found was that in using 2 packets the cocoa was rich and thick. If you like chocolate, this would definitely be something you would like! I also tasted the other two varieties and found that they too tasted good, just not as thick, but just as tasty!

All-in-all, the kids loved the cocoa and all said they wanted their moms to go out and get this kind of cocoa. We even had one girl that never likes cocoa who said that she loved this mix and she wanted to have her mom buy her some!

So for this family, we have found a new Cocoa mix! I am definitely looking forward to trying other varieties in the future!
