I’ve been searching high and low for the Nestle Fat Free Hot Cocoa but continuously came up empty handed because for some reason Swiss Miss is the hot cocoa mix of choice on many grocery retailers’ shelves.I specifically wanted to pick this up because it’s more of a guilt free hot cocoa in comparison to other brands. I found this in my local grocery store one afternoon because they brought the brand in because they were completely out of Swiss Miss diet and sugar free.
Since it was a very cold night, I decided to make myself a cup of hot cocoa. I boiled my water, emptied the cocoa package into my mug. When done I stirred it up and gave it a sip … and was pleasantly surprised.The cocoa is chocolately but it’s not creamy – so if you’re looking for something as creamy as say a Swiss Miss you won’t find it here. Considering the nutrition facts I’ll take it because it’s one of those products that can curb a chocolate craving.I’ve also been told this is great to add to coffee to help sweeten it up without needing to add sugar/creamer. While I’ve heard it’s also good to incorporate with whipped cream or yogurt. I plan on giving that a try sometime soon!

I love hot cocoa – but I tend to only drink it in the fall and winter months – probably because I associate it with a warm and cozy beverage. Sure, I drink hot coffee all year round, but cocoa has it’s place – at least in my book.I usually prefer the original cocoa, but I received this box for free – so no sugar added it was.
Swiss Miss No Sugar Added Hot Cocoa is Swiss Miss’ take at hot cocoa that is without the added sugar in comparison to the original. I find this one to be pleasantly sweet enough without it being too much. There are occasions where regular hot cocoa is just too sweet for my taste buds. This particular type is smooth, creamy, rich and delicious. It could be made with hot milk to make it even more filling but I tend to prefer my hot cocoa made with water and perhaps a splash of milk to help cool it down just a tad.
A single packet is 60 calories or 2 points plus values (truthfully, the same points plus value of the original Swiss Miss – but if sugar is a concern for you – this is good).
