ProIts good for you

Consneeds fudge with it

Even if you?ve never tasted it you will probably remember the advertising campaign in 2000 with the woman tearing her hair out and the slogan ?So who didn?t have their Horlicks last night?? Horlicks prides itself on its ingredients not only being good for you, but able to help you ?sleep better...

“SLEEP SPONSORED BY HORLICKS”

ProTasty, luxurious, sleepy time drink.

In the past couple of months I’ve been experiencing some trouble sleeping, not every night, but certainly a few nights a week I’ve been tossing and turning almost till the sun comes up!! Not great when you have to be up for work at 7.00am. I’ll not explain here why I’ve been an insomniac, suffice...

“Give me the Original Any Day”

ProLow fat instant version is good for those watching...

ConsDoesn't taste as good as the original

There’s nowt nicer than a nice mug of Horlicks before you go to bed in an evening. Experience has taught me that it’s great tool for helping you nod off. It’s deliciously creamy and just tastes of childhood. Besides, it’s good for you –after all it’s packed...

ProTasty, helps you sleep, low fat

Consnone

I'm quite prone to sleepless nights. You'd think that running after 2 young children would make me so tired that I'd drop off to sleep as soon as my head touched the pillow and then wake up 8 or so hours later ready to face the world. WRONG! Every night for the past few weeks I've been waking up...

“Horlicks”

published 18/02/2010

Prosurprised how nice a malt drink can be!

Consnot much

Horlicks Malted Milk Drink: I had my first mug of this last night and I was surprised because I really liked it. When my boyfriend told me this was a malted drink, I got a little anxious and I didn't know whether to try it or not. His nan bought quite a large tub of this, so when I opened it to...

“Sleepy Time....”

published 12/03/2009

ProTastes lovely, nutritious, helps you to sleep

ConsNot suitable for vegetarians

I am a shift worker so quite often I need to sleep at weird times throughout the day, at times when I am not always tired. What is it? Horlicks is an instant malted drink which can be made with either milk or hot water depending on your preference. It is said to help you sleep and it certainly...

ConsFiddly to microwave, flip top pops open sometimes

Horlicks is a malted hot drink made with milk, which is marketed as the ideal drink for bedtime based on the old wives tale that a warm milky drink before you go to bed relaxes you and promotes a restful night’s sleep. I'm not really one for sleep aids as I would rather address the issues that...

“Yummy but Calorific drink”

published 24/12/2011

ProComforting malt drink

ConsExpensive and a few calories

I became a fan of Horlicks when I was pregnant. I started drinking it as I didn't really like milk but this helped me get my calcium quota in. I buy my Horlicks on offer in Tesco but it's normally sold at £3.99 for 800g which is a little pricey but keep an eye out for the offers. Horlicks offer...

ProHelps you relax and sleep better at night

ConsNot suitable for vegetarians

There's nothing more frustrating than that feeling of overtiredness, when you're tossing and turning at night and waking up every half an hour watching the clock only to find that you've finally dozed off just before the alarm clock rudely awakes you. This has happened to me a fair bit recently...

ProLow in Fat, smooth tasting.

ConsNone but for me it is the malted one.

Please excuse the title, really couldn’t think of anything suitable. I would never have tried Horlicks if hubby hadn’t brought some home the other week. So what was he’s intensions of buying this so he gets peace at night as it makes me sleep? **Brief History** In 1873 Mr. James Horlick and Mr...

“Who needs the sandman ?”

published 03/02/2004

ProIt's Instant

ConsA little expensive

My 4 year old had decided that bedtime was playtime and she was going to empty her drawers and play dressing up at 10.30 at night until midnight when we believed that she was fast asleep tucked up in bed like me and hubby. Also I think it was the fact that her 9 year old brother had told her that...

ProTasty, different from tea or coffee

ConsA little fiddly to make

I was in search of a new warm drink. My girls aren’t really into tea or coffee yet and hot chocolate all the time can become boring – honest. So there I was looking at the beverage shelves and I spied a jar of Horlicks. Not had that since I was a kid I thought – let’s see if my girls like it...

I don't usually have a problem sleeping, in fact most nights my head hits the pillow a zonk, that's me until the alarm goes. There are however occasions when I maybe to tired and wound up that getting off to sleep doesn't happen as readily as it normally does. It is on these days that I require...

ConsThe instant one is horrid

It’s the early 60s. You are a small child, pre-school aged. To feed a family of 5, in the days before everyone has cars and freezers, requires your mother to make almost daily trips to the town centre., or "down the street" in the parlance of your home town. In the days before nursery schools...
