Product Review: Hood Low Carb Low Calorie Chocolate Milk
As I write this, I'm enjoying a cold mug of chocolate milk. Did I mention that I'm on a low carb diet? What's that - you're wondering how I can drink chocolate milk while low carb dieting? Simple! It's Hood Calorie Countdown Dairy Beverage, and it's a delicious, healthy low carb food!
I've always had a thing for chocolate milk. When I was a kid, Mom would always let us choose whatever we wanted for our birthday dinner, and I always chose the same meal every year: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, homemade biscuits, and chocolate milk. I figured I'd outgrow my affinity for the sweet chocolatey beverage, but I haven't. Luckily, I discovered Hood chocolate milk!
If you've ever tried a low carb diet, you know how it is. You get to the point where you want something sweet so bad that you dream about it. And it's even harder for us women because so many of us have a physical and emotional need for chocolate. For these reasons, I'm always on the lookout for sugar free products that satisfy my cravings. With this beverage, we can get our chocolate fix without wrecking our healthy low carb diet plan!
Look at what Hood offers in an eight-ounce serving:
In addition, a serving even provides a gram of fiber!
Now, compare regular chocolate milk to Hood:
Now you can see why Hood chocolate milk is such a better choice for those on low carb diets or for people just wanting to reduce the amount of fat and sugar in their diet.
Hood chocolate milk is rich and creamy, and it's has a great chocolate flavor. It satisfies my craving for sweets and my addiction to chocolate. I usually drink it ice cold, but it's also great hot. I just pour a cup and pop it into the microwave for a minute on those cold mornings for a hot chocolate cocoa drink. I often drink it instead of coffee!
On the carton is always a tasty recipe using the milk, and by visiting the website, you can get more great low carb chocolate recipes.
And don't worry about aspartame - Hood milk is sweetened with Splenda.
Another great thing about this product is the long refrigerator shelf life. It lasts MUCH longer than regular milk in the fridge! In fact, it keeps for over a month.
Sometimes Hood chocolate milk is hard to find in grocery stores, but I can always find it in Walmart, in the dairy case.
Hood also makes a regular low carb milk, but I haven't tried it yet. I'm too hooked on the chocolate!
Give this milk a try - as a frosty beverage or as hot chocolate cocoa! It's a great option for healthy low carb dieting!
