REVIEW // JAZ & JULS DRINKING CHOCOLATE

Christmas is over but winter is still here to stay - for the time being anyway. The number one thing to drink this season is, as always, hot chocolate. I adore hot chocolate and love how soothing it is. There really is nothing better then getting in out of the cold and drinking a hot chocolate next to a crackling fire on a winter's evening - it's heaven! And even better is that you can drink hot chocolate as it is or you can go all out with marshmallows, cream and chocolate shavings. Yummy. I'm always on the look out for a new hot chocolate to drink, my usual favourite being the malteasers one. 
Back when I attended the amazing Salon Du Chocolat, I enjoyed wandering around all the different stalls, trying and testing what each company had to offer. One brand that really intrigued me was Jaz & Juls, who create and sell ethically sourced hot chocolate. Their quirky and unique designs caught my eye (and one of the ladies who had awesome bright pink hair!) and I immediately shimmeyed over to try some of their hot chocolate. It was delicious!

I was looking for something to get my mum because she can't eat dairy products so I was pleased when they told me their hot chocolate was completely dairy free. Despite this, it somehow still tasted amazing. They had lots of different flavours on offer such as Cinnamon Rose, Raspberry Dream and Chilli Con Chocy - yes, each flavour has an adorable name too. I quickly purchased a variety pack of three and chose Gingerbread, Man!, Cinnamon Rose and Orangeytang.

The instructions state that you can make two cups per box but I've actually managed to make a few more. I've yet to try Cinnamon Rose but the other two flavours are very yummy. I'm not very good at describing tastes but Orangeytang tastes like real hot chocolate with just the perfect subtle hint of chocolate - not enough to be overbearing but just enough to taste lovely, and Gingerbread man just tastes like Christmas, haha!

I absolutely love this range and you really can't go wrong with it. It uses natural and wholesale ingredients, has the cutest packaging and actually tastes delicious! It's not cheap at £8.50 per full sized pack, but it IS worth it. If £8.50 is a little too pricey for you, taster packs (the same size as above) cost only £3.00 (and last AGES) or you can buy a variety taster pack of three for £8.00.

Since I'm on a bit of a health kick this year (aren't we all after new years!), this hot chocolate is the perfect alternative to the usual cheap and not healthy hot chocolate I buy. I love that everything is sourced properly and it's 'real' hot chocolate, yet despite the natural ingredients it's not as expensive as you'd expect it to be. As a bonus, my mum loves it too which means even if you can't have dairy, you can still drink this! The taster packs are ideal for gifts for people, not only for Christmas but for all year round.

You can view the full range here and you'll also find the hot chocolate available at selected coffee shops, hotels and retails across the UK.
