Dunkin Donuts Milky Way Hot Chocolate

macca Jan 31, 2008 10:23 AM

Our office is really cold today ( boss turned the thermostat down too low last night), so this am, he brought in some DD Milky Way hot chocolate ( large size) Boy- they are horrible. There is not even a faint taste of milky way- just tastes like a hot beverage with LOTS of artificial stuff. Well, I checked the website, and that is exactly what it is- there are 13n grams of fat ( 12 are saturated). What a total waste of calories. I did not think hot chocolate could be completely ruined.
PS- I enjoy DD iced coffee and hot coffee.

    I recently tried the Milky Way hot chocolate and I was not impressed either. I thought I tasted carmel but that was about it.

    I've also had their white hot chocolate which I think is better but its very very sweet.

      have only had their coffee before yesterday- and seems like that may be the best thing to do! I love hot chocolate- it is something I treat myself to every so often, so it pained me to waste the calories/fat over something so dismal! Believe it or not, there is a local chain of stores in the Boston narea- White Hen Pantry- and the one in saugus ma has GREAT hot chocolate!! Not sure if all of the stores serve the same thing, but I was pleasantly surprised to try it!

        macca,

        I too, love Hot Chocolate....I will definately give White Hen a try....who would have thought??? I don't like any of the Hc's at Dunkins, I stick to the coffee. But one place I do do Hot Chocolate is Starbucks, IMO it's the best available on the run. Verdi HC with whipped cream and chocolate drizzle...Ummmmmm can't beat it.

          Wow -- White Hen has good hot chocolate? Who knew? I'll have to check it out I don't really like Starbucks' version -- tastes a little chemical-y to me.

          OT on this board but in Boston my best hot chocolate treat is Burdicks...

        The white hot chocolate is great with a shot of espresso in it. It cuts the sweetness a bunch.
