I've never had luck with the diet forms of hot cocoa either. I think they taste disguisting and I always feel guilty about putting the chemicals in my body. I usually just drink the regular. I find rounly 120 calories to fit into my meal plan just fine and the taste to be more satisfying. Lately I've just started making my own hot cocoa mix so I know exactly what's in it.

I don't drink hot chocolate very often, but when I do, I make the full-blown regular kind rather than have anything diet. Diet additives tend to make me feel sick at my stomach.

Plus I always feel I've had a decadent dessert this way!

At Sam's they just mixed it with water and kept it warm in a Mr. Coffee.

I have struggled with it mixing right too. So I don't use it anymore. I found another swiss miss that I use instead. It is 10 calories more but it mixes fine. I love it with some non fat milk and some sugar free caramel syrup.

I can never get it to mix up right... it never dissolves?

I boil water on the stove, and stir as I am adding it... what am I doing wrong?

Sometimes I'll add half a pkg. to my coffee and make a yummy mocha... then a splash of Torani caramel or english toffee syrup. Who needs starbucks, right?

diet swiss miss gives me gas. I do like the regular one though. I will only drink the other if I am not going anywhere.

About a month ago Sam's (I know... you would think I live there) was sampling the Swiss Miss Diet Hot Chocolate and they added some Vanilla and Almond extract. I don't know about the added calories but the combination of extracts made the hot chocolate even better.

The creamer idea sounds good! I'll have to give that a try.

I love it! I make it with hot water and add a tsp. of Coffeemate Natural Vanilla Creamer. It tastes SOO rich and creamy (and the tsp of creamer only adds 11 calories!!)

The taste of the artificial sweetener is too strong for me... can't stand the diet stuff.

I love it!!! But it's so much more expensive than the non-diet kind.....

yes, I like it very much. Also fixes my chocolate craving and I can stretch it out a bit by sipping on it.

Have you tried it? Only 25 calories. It has saved me many times from going for higher-calorie snacks. Very tasty!
