Revisiting Tassimo: Suchard's Hot Chocolate Part III
Okay - so we know were supposed to cover hot chocolate yesterday but we had too much fun making Cappuccinos with Tassimo. Today we'll go over our impressions of hot chocolate made with Suchard Hot Chocolate T-Discs.
Suchard Hot Chocolate T-Discs come packed 18 for $7.99 in a two sleave baggish like box. That brings each hot chocolate you make cost in the $.45 cent range. We like the price but how good is the hot chocolate?
The hot chocolate isn't made with milk and syrup, it's made with chocolate syrup in the Suchard Hot Chocolate T-Disc and then hot water from the Tassimo reservoir. When we first reviewed the Tassimo - we were quite impressed with the hot chocolate but since we routinely make our hot chocolate with milk now - how does it compare?
For me - it's okay. I love my hot chocolate either way, and find the Tassimo to be quite quick and simple to make but for my wife had the following to say, "The hot chocolate produced is very much like the hot chocolate you got in college on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It's very chocolate in nature but also a bit more watery. " Oh well you can't impress everyone. She found it drinkable but not her favorite.
We tried putting a milk T-Disc and a Suchard Hot Chocolate T-Disc - well this is a little more on track but since you can't buy milk T-Discs separately from espresso T-Discs - maybe not a good idea in the long run. We even tried a Cappuccino, Hot Chocolate, and Espresso drink - NOT BAD!
So in the end we think the hot chocolate is decent but just not by itself. We'd love for Tassimo to add some milk and chocolate to the T-Disc and make this a more milk based hot chocolate.

I've done the espresso + chocolate + cappuccino milk disc combo before, and it tends to be a bit watery. To fix this, when you brew the chocolate disc, watch it brew - when the water goes clear, hit the button, and it'll stop. Voila, chocolate flavor shot. Much better flavor.
