[Review] Jollycow Choco Milk

Jollycow Chocolate milk is a new player in the market. Upon receiving the box of Jollycow, I was excited to give it a try. When breakfast came the next day, I tried a glass of chilled Jollycow choco milk, though I don’t like drinking plain milk (read Fresh milk) I must say drinking chocolate milk for me is something different for me. JollyCow’s Chocolate milk has this rich chocolate flavor, more like dark chocolate plus its not too sweet.


As for its packaging, its available in 2 sizes: 200 ml Ideal for kids baon & 1L  for sharing at home. The difference between Choco milk and choco drink is that choco milk healthier since its made from 100% pure cow’s milk, cocoa & Sugar. Its the healthier choice.


Give Jollycow Chocolate Milk a try! 😀 You will surely love it! 🙂

Ideas on How to enjoy Lotus Biscoff?

It was just last saturday that I got to know about Lotus Biscoff at the DDI Acquaintance Party.  Upon my first taste of it, it reminds me of cookie butter, which was popular way back. Lotus Biscoff is best paired with coffee, but since I am not a coffee drinker, I had thought of some ways of enjoying biscoff my way!
