Natrel Dark Chocolate Milk

Has anyone seen it on the grocery shelf? I think it's a brilliant idea.
Saw it at IGA beahes and Lady York - but Im sure it will be everywhere next week.

  1. Oooh this is a good idea!!! I will have to look out for this. Thanks for the tip.

    1. I hadn't heard of this before. I checked out their website though and I see that it looks like their dark chocolate milk actually has more sugar and calories than their regular chocolate milk!

      http://www.natrel.ca/en/products/

      I will still give it a shot when I see it(not sure how the sugar/calories compare to other brands of chocolate milk

      )

      Thanks for the heads up.

        Will still have to try it, despite the increased sugar/calories. Sucks about that actually, but oh well. Let's try.

          Natrel's regular chocolate milk is a new product too....

          The only chocolate milk I believe they had previously was their lactose free variety - which I thought was okay, but not great.

          I look forward to trying both these new products!

        2. It is featured in the Rabba flyer for this week. 2 for $5. Anyone try it yet?

          1. On sale for 2/$3 (AMAZING PRICE!) at the Sobey's at Bay/College. I bought one milk chocolate and one dark chocolate, both great. Highly recommend. Great colour.

              Ha, yeah, I was just reading through some other flyers (well, not "reading") and saw the Sobey's offer and was going to come back to post it but you beat me to it. Glad to here is tastes good. Going to swing by a Sobey's at some point.

              1. re: canadianbeaver

                It was sold out at the College Park Sobeys when I went today in case anyone was going today.

                They said more would be in tomorrow. Maybe call ahead to make sure your trip isn't wasted....

                  On another note: isn't that Sobey's amazing?

                  1. re: canadianbeaver

                    A fine store. They carry some cool things. It's a tad pricey for my cheapskate blood but definitely a good option to have in that area.

                  2. re: magic

                    I got some at the Sobeys at Yonge/Davisville. Can't wait to try!

                    1. re: magic

                      Mmmm.... dark chocolate milk is delish. Will try the milk chocolate later on. Crazy beautiful colour on the dark chocolate milk.

                2. tried it and thought it was very good...it reminds me of the Harvey's milkshake, which i love

                    Delicious - esp when ice cold. Might be even better made with 2% milk. Found it this morning on the shelves at Sobey's St Clair E of Yonge - the manager didn't know it was there and said he was frustrated ordering it, but a clerk found it on some special display shelves. At two for $3 I am stocking up!
