Choco­late almond milk has always been sta­ple in our house. It’s just SO good! When stock­ing up last week, I noticed some­thing new– choco­late hazel­nut milk! Pacific has also started car­ry­ing their own hemp milk, so we decided to have a nut milk show­down. The judges were: myself and my lit­tle brother Alec.

The votes:

Kris:
Almond milk– still the reign­ing champ at #1.
Hazel­nut milk– a very close sec­ond. More cocoay than choco­latey, but with a nice hint of hazel­nuts. Reminded me of Nutella.
Hemp milk– okay in a pinch, but Liv­ing Harvest’s hemp milk is much better.

Alec:
Hazel­nut milk– dis­sent­ing, Alec felt that the pres­ence of the hazel­nut fla­vor took this choco­late milk up a notch. The mouth feel was bet­ter than the almond milk.
Almond milk– it was sweet and choco­latey, but “full of almond­ness”- I don’t know what that means. :)
Hemp milk– Meh. Not as good as Liv­ing Harvest.

So, it’s incon­clu­sive, but since it’s my blog I’m the boss, so it appears that almond milk is still the cham­pion, but hazel­nut will become a fre­quent vis­i­tor. Drank in our Welch’s jelly jars, of course.

What’s your favorite choco­late milk?

    Hazel­nut choco­late milk? It’s like Nutella in a glass!
    It’s extremely rare that I buy fla­vored milks (actu­ally, I can even say it’s rare that I buy milk, as I make my own soymilk), and when I do, it’s almost never choco­late. Not that I don’t like it, of course, but I kind of feel I can add my own sugar and cocoa (or choco­late) to plain milk if ever I feel like it. The treat I get myself once in a while, though, is Natur-a straw­berry milk. Oh good­ness! It has noth­ing of the chemical-y taste you some­times find in strawberry-flavored stuff, no: just real straw­berry good­ness. I par­tic­u­larly like it in win­ter, when it feels like straw­berry sea­son is so far away… I don’t know if you can find Natur-a prod­ucts in the States, though — if not, you have to come visit me, and I’ll make sure you try that yummy milk! :)

    I just posted on mak­ing milks! I love choco­late any­thing, so I think the next one I make will include cocoa nibs in the mix. Hope it turns out!

    Any­way, if you’re inter­ested in get­ting a soymilk maker, I’m offer­ing a $10 dis­count on one.

    Never tried choco­late hazel­nut milk but now I want to. My 4yo is on a dairy free diet and prefers choco­late almond milk (Silk brand) over choco­late soy milk.

    I just bought Hazel­nut milk — my local stop and shop just start­ing car­ry­ing it! I am very excited to try it. I bought the vanilla though because I always use unsweet­ened vanilla almond milk in my cereal, and just to drink. I actu­ally have never tried any choco­late milks except for Silk which I didn’t care for and 8th con­ti­nent choco­late soy which I LOVE but can’t seem to find any­more. sadface.
