This milkshake will bring the boys to the yard...But I'm not sharing!

About Yazoo milkshake/ and my addiction

Today I purchased a 1 litre bottle of chocolaty Yazoo Milkshake from Sainsbury for a great price of £0.97. The first thing that attracted me to this deliciously looking chocolaty drink was its sheer size, I am self confessed chocoholic, looking at this big bottle of chocolate made my mind "bing". On the shelf it sat proudly next to its friend's banana and strawberry. At first I wanted to pick up the strawberry shake as I was worried about sheer level of calories living in the Chocó shake, but like a real bad person I bought the Chocó shake. I knew as soon as I got my hands around this beauty I would seat in my car (at the Sainsbury's parking lot) drinking it down like Homer Simpson. And much to my friend's disbelief that's exactly what I did, I finished the whole bottle under 10 minutes. I hear you ask "did you share it with your friend", no Mam I did not!

The taste

The taste was very humbling and pleasing, although like every chocolate milkshake it does tend to leave a bitter after taste. The consistency of the milkshake was rather thick, almost like melted chocolate Ice cream; then again I suppose that's exactly what milkshake is. The Yazoo milkshake I bought wasn't the famous chilled type, I would like to think the chilled milkshake would hail better to my tongue. Strawberry milkshake seem to be the most favourable by my household, it has a much smoother taste then the banana or the chocolate.

The health factor

It appears this chocolate milkshake provides you with "all the goodness of diary" and its low in fat. However it isn't advisable to finish of the 1 litre bottle at once, this is a very common mistake made by people of my calibre. This bottle also contain no traces of artificial colours or sweeteners, it appears to be pure chocolate juice, hence the bitter after taste. It also contains calcium for strong bones and teeth. It also has vitamin B, which helps to promote healthy growth and it also has less than 5% added sugar, hmm I'm not sure if it's advisable for diabetes sufferers. Also for those health conscious mothers, it meets UK government regulations for use in schools.

Good review, although I've never heard a milkshake's flavour be described as "humbling" before!
