Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa

15 Comments 2510 views

Swiss Miss Diet Hot CocoaI saw Swiss Miss Diet while shopping last weekend and after seeing it was only 25 calories a servings with no fat and 1 g of fiber (0 points!) I thought it was worth a try!

To be honest I wasn’t expecting much, nothing with only 25 calories can be that good.  This low expectation created a pleasant surprise. I think I may have actually said aloud, “Humpf! Not bad!”

I was right, it’s not the best hot chocolate in the world but when you are married to a hot chocolate junkie and don’t want to waist 3-4 point to enjoy a cup with him after a long walk in the cold or shoveling snow this is a good option. I made it with water then added a splash of milk to cool it down. It reminded me of the hot cocoa you would get in one of those machines. You know with the cards on the cup. I never really minded the machine hot cocoa. I guess you can say I’m the opposite of a food snob! ;~)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Hi, Roni!

    The diet swiss miss is okay…but next time, try the Nestle Carb Select – without the marshmallows — It’s also zero points (or pretty darn close!) and is WAY better :-)

    Happy New Year! You continue to be a daily source of inspiration for a fellow maintainer :-)

    I love the diet Swiss Miss. I do add 1 packet of splenda to mine though cause I like it really sweet.

    I like to take it and add it to a cup of coffee – it makes you feel like you’re having something “bad” at Starbucks. If you really want to be naughty add a bit of cool-whip!

    I really like the Swiss Miss Diet Hot Cocoa. I too, like mine a little sweeter and I add one of the Splenda Flavor Blends (French Vanilla) which adds not only sweetness but a little richness to the flavor……yum.

    I love that cocoa! I add sugar free Toriani syrup to mine — the white chocolate is quite tasty.

    I also vote for the Nestle Carb Select. I got to have me some marshmallows in my cocoa, even if they are tiny and artificial!

    I always look at that stuff at the store and consider it. Then I look at the ingredient list and am grossed out.

    Which is just really ironic since I drink diet Coke like crazy. :P So I just make cocoa with nonfat milk and cocoa powder and a little sugar. Not low in points though.

    Hey Roni! Thanks so much for putting so much effort into your blog. I really enjoy it! I just wanted to let you know that you have inspired me to create my own and I would love some feedback. The link is ryetoast.wordpress.com . I am also doing Weight Watchers to lose a few pounds as I am a figure skater. Thanks!

    I don’t buy Nestle products, but I do love the Swiss Miss Sensible Sweets kind. It’s the same calories/fat/fiber as the one you mentioned, and it tastes great considering it’s zero points!
