This is hands down, the best instant hot chocolate I've been able to find. If there is one better, I'll guarantee you it's a lot more expensive. IMO, if you want better, you will need to be at a restaurant, donut shop, or a specialty store.
I've tried all of the other major brands out there, including Ghiradelli and Land 'O Lakes; as well as the other Swiss Miss varieties. However, Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate Sensation is the one with the most true and rich and deep chocolate flavor.
I like to make mochas by using one pack of the Dark Chocolate Sensation, a little coffee, water and a couple of half and halfs. To me it rivals Starbuck's mochas. When I first ran out, I tried other brands with terrible results. The coffee completely overpowered the chocolate and I was left with an overly sweet, shallow flavored, undrinkable drink. Yuck! Now on to Walmart. I am so happy to have discovered Walmart's online shop. The Dark Chocolate Sensation is very hard to find in stores for some reason; and when you do, it is ridiculously overpriced. One 8-serving box at Smart & Final was recently going for $3.49! I just bought 6 boxes at Walmart.com for less than $8!!!! To boot, there was FREE SHIPPING!!! It doesn't get any better than that. I will now shop no where else for my favorite hot chocolate.
