Nestlé Hot Cocoa celebrates the winter season with the introduction of four new flavors (Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Caramel, Chocolate Mint and Women’s Wellness), featuring less sugar and added nutrients.

“Sipping from a steaming cup of hot cocoa on a cold winter’s day is a great way to chase away the chill of winter” said Chad Patterson, Nestlé Hot Cocoa, brand manager. “With our new hot cocoa flavors, we add a bit more variety to this favorite indulgence, while also helping people reduce the amount of sugar they consume and add some helpful nutrients.”

  • Nestlé Hot Cocoa Dark Chocolate provides a deep, dark chocolate flavor and contains 25 percent less sugar than the leading brand.
  • Nestlé Hot Cocoa Chocolate Caramel offers a smooth, creamy caramel taste paired with a rich chocolate taste and has 29 percent less sugar than the leading brand.
  • Nestlé Hot Cocoa Chocolate Mint adds the refreshing flavor of peppermint blended with chocolate, with 27 percent less sugar than the leading brand.
  • Nestlé Hot Cocoa Women’s Wellness is based on the perennial favorite Rich Chocolate flavor and contains added vitamins, making it an excellent source of calcium, antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, vitamins B6 and B12 and iron.

These four new flavors join the existing Nestlé Hot Cocoa family of flavors, including: Rich Milk Chocolate, Mini Marshmallows, No Sugar Added and Fat Free.

All Nestlé Hot Cocoa flavors are fortified with calcium and are a natural source of antioxidants.
