Dark Chocolate Milk and Soy Milk


Another thing I love about Hong Kong.
People here love their chocolate rich and dark....and food manufacturers and marketers responded to customers' demands very well.

I am not a big plain milk drinker, and chocolate milk to me...well, most of them are just like sweetened milk with a tiny hint of chocolate, which is not enough. I love my chocolate to kick me hard in the butt. Super strong, almost bitter.

The first dark chocolate milk I noticed was this Deluxe Chocolate Low Fat Milk Drink from Kowloon Dairy. Love love loved it. Don't be fooled by its "low fat" label, it tastes fantastic. Rich, creamy, and super chocolatey. More brands came up with their versions of dark chocolate milk, but this one's my favorite so far.

Sooner of later...of course...Vitasoy must do their version of dark chocolate soy milk.

Unfortunately, despite the convincing packaging, it's not chocolatey enough. It is just a slightly better version of their previous chocolate soy milk. I hope they'll go darker.

Chocolate...it makes everything more bearable, doesn't it?

In fact it is! I can bear the chocolate soy milk but not the unsweetened soy milk. I used to drink a lot while pregnant with my 1st. and then I suddenly developed phobia of it. I can't touch it now. Sad!

Jd inget jaman kuliah dulu, my roommate and I, we used to go to Vietnamese supermarket to get a gallon of soymilk. We're hoping drinking soymilk would make our skin smooth and shiny ha ha ha
