This was really good. We wanted a few non coffee options for both us adults when we were in a non-coffee mood, but alsof or the kids because they wanted to try out our new Keurig 2.0 as well.

My 9 year old son watched me make a cup of coffee with a K-Cup then I supervised him making his own cup of hot cocoa. It was simple for him to do, we hit the hot cocoa button and changed the cup size to 12 oz and then he hit the brew button.

It looks like it spit most of the cocoa out first then was mostly clear water for the rest of the process. When it was done we picked it up and each took a sip without stirring to see how it tasted. I don't think we ever did get around to stirring it. It was good, comparable to any other instant cocoa out there. We enjoyed it and would purchase it again in the future.

Contains Sucralose

I was very disappointed by the unusual flavor of the hot chocolate. I knew something didn't taste right. My suspicions were confirmed when I looked at the ingredients and discovered it contained sucralose. The remainder of the cup got poured down the sink.

      Comments about Cafe Escapes® Hot Chocolate K-cups (108896):

      Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa gives the reliable hot chocolate experience you remember from the boxed/powder variety. I found it to be just a tiny bit too watery, but overall, a positive hot cocoa that most people will certainly enjoy.

          It tastes best when you make it on the 6 oz setting. The flavor is richer. It tastes amazing with some whip cream on it. Love it!! Tastes better than some hot chocolates you get in restaurants!

            I was not expecting to like it but I was surprised. I used it on the lowest setting and it tasted like normal cocoa. It may taste watery if it is on the highest setting (large cup). Don't expect your grandmothers hot cocoa.

                      Just stick with warming milk on a stove and adding your own favorite hot cocoa mix. This was not good, I tried all 3 serving sizes and each one from 6oz to the 10oz was weak, bland, and regrettable in the cost. I wish Keurig would at least do an exchange or offer samples like they in their coffees.

                            if you like fake sweeteners, fake flavor, chemicals, synthetic fat, a bland chocolate taste, and wasting 1/2 of the cocoa in the cup as it doesn't brew fully, then enjoy this poor excuse for flavored water. this is most certainly not "the way hot cocoa was meant to be."

                                    My kids add marshmallows before we fill the cup. They love the flavor!

                                      This is an okay cup of cocoa. I'd rather just brew hot water and add a powder packet though. It tastes better. This one isn't very rich.

                                          This was the first Keurig product I have ever used. I won't be trying anything again. My husband bought the set. This product tasted worse than rest stop machine hot chocolate.

                                          This product gives Keurig a terrible name, if all the other cups are the same quality.

                                              Easy enough to make. Could have a little more flavor but at 70 calories you can't be too picky.

                                                I got this and the "other" brand for my family to try. Surprisingly, they preferred the Café Escapes. They say it's not as watery and it tastes yummy. Me? I'll stick to my coffee (-:

                                                I was very disappointed by the unusual flavor of the hot chocolate. I knew something didn't taste right. My suspicions were confirmed when I looked at the ingredients and discovered it contained sucralose. The remainder of the cup got poured down the sink.

                                                    Left the worst after taste in my mouth for hours. I didn't read the ingredients first to see that they use artificial sweetner. If I knew that ahead of time I would never have bought it. It isn't label "sugar free", which it does contain some sugar. YUCK.

                                                    Almost dumped it out because the after taste was so bad that I thought something was wrong with it.

                                                      Freezing outside. Made a cup because I have always found hot chocolate warms from the inside out. Comfort "food". Other brands are too strong, rich or gritty. This was smooth, and full of flavor. Good Stuff!

                                                          The artificial sweetener was just too overpowering. Couldn't think about anything but the bad taste in my mouth.

                                                                This was such a delight! The whole family really enjoyed this! We added marshmallows and enjoyed a smooth hot chocolate. This was such a delight after years of drinking powdered cocoa from packets.
