    This stuff is awesome. I bought this thinking I would store it, but my kids got in to it. Our family ended up having hot chocolate every night! Price per ounce is better than anything you can buy at the grocery store and it taste just as good.

    I usually buy several cans of hot cocoa at the local grocery store but this is just as good and it tastes great too! I don't drink coffee so this is my hot drink on cold mornings when heading to school, work, or while just sitting at home.

    That is why I just ordered the instant hot cocoa mix. I know it will prove to be an asset in ordinary or emergency instances. I plan to further fortify it by adding your instant dried milk when preparing it.

    The hot cocoa mix sold in stores is not the same as this stuff! This has a longer shelf life - it's right on the box! While this is a little pricer than regular hot cocoa mix, it will last longer and the taste is about the same.
