Beware a lot of other brands use more sugar & less chocolate or cocoa per weight to fill the container. So it's usually not worth it because you're just paying for extra sugar, which we all already have & can add at home if we want to. With many other brands, you're getting more sweetness, but less chocolate or cocoa (chocolate is from cocoa).
If I just add 1 heaping teaspoon of Nesquik with 2-3 teaspoons of sugar, into a glass of milk it tastes a lot like those other inferior brands. So you're just paying for a lot of extra sugar with them. Also some brands include powdered milk or creamer in their mix so all you have to do it add water. But you're paying extra for all that sugar, milk, or creamer with hardly any chocolate in it per pound.
If you make NEsquik as per the instructions, it really has a rich chocolate taste. Ironically, I've only tasted 1 other brand this rich in chocolate flavor, a generic brand called "Scruntchy" from a store out of New Jersy called netgrocer.
In my town Nesquick goes for almost 4 bucks (per 8oz) to almost 8 bucks (per 18oz) for a 8-18oz container of it in my local stores. So 40oz of Nesquik for under 8 bucks here is a great deal for me. Nesquik & Scruntchy are my favorite chocolate milk brands. Add it to a little watered down hot milk & you got hot chocolate. Tastes great in coffee too. You can make it stretch in a pinch by adding more sugar & a little less Nesquik. 1 heaping teaspoon in milk, & then add sugar until it's sweet enough makes it taste like a lot of inferior brands, but will stretch it to last a very long time. But half sugar with half Nesquik tastes better if you must dilute it.
