I’ll be honest; I drank this at the end of a mammoth 6 hour Tai Chi class (this might lead you to think that I am a fitness bunny.  I am more of a fitness sloth hence…).  I really was in no shape to judge, well, anything.  However, as I gulped it down, I noticed that, despite the absence of any sweeteners, it tasted sweet to me.  I think this is because my brain is used to sweet and chocolate going together.  The presence of chocolate flavour was enough to convince my exercise-addled brain that it was sweet too.  My brain also enjoyed the creaminess from the coconut.

The negatives of this product are that, as it is based on rice milk, it is not suitable for children aged under 5 years.  And, from a purely selfish point of view, the Allergy Brothers are allergic to it.  I really wish someone would make a chocolate flavoured almond milk in an individual serving pack.  Well, a girl can dream…
