Keep Warm with Hot Chocolate K Cups
How do you choose a Hot Chocolate K cup?
Nothing beats a steaming cup of hot, creamy chocolate after a physically tiring day at work, or on a cold winter day. A hot chocolate K-cup is a single-serve pod of chocolaty deliciousness that can be used in your brewer. (“K” is for “Keuring”, the manufacturer of the coffee brewer designed to accept pods for single-serving cups of coffee, which was later extended to hot chocolate capsules as well.) To help you decide in choosing the best hot chocolate K-cup, we have put together this buying guide including everything you would want to know about it.
What should you consider when buying a hot chocolate K-cup?
Richness Quotient: When looking to buy a hot chocolate K-cup, look for the richness quotient first. Simply put, the richness of the cocoa enhances the flavor to a great extent whereas a non-rich medium tends to make them weak and watery in spite of your best efforts. Always go for the brand that has a rich, full-bodied flavor.
Calorie content: Calories are an important aspect that most people tend to ignore. That's not advisable. The best hot chocolate K-cups calorie quotient should be roughly about 50 - 60 calories per serving. That averages to about 2 grams of fat. Have a look at the individual hot chocolate K-cups reviews and the nutritional charts before zeroing on the right product.
Types of sweeteners: Most of the hot chocolate K-cups have artificial sweeteners in them—which many people seriously try to avoid. Once again, check the artificial sweetener rates on the nutritional chart before buying the product.
Note: Some flavors try to mask the artificial sweetener's taste in certain cocoa varieties. Go for them if you are sensitive about the sweeteners.
Different flavors: The market is flooded with various types of hot chocolate K-cups. It is always best to go for a value pack that has two or more flavors in it. In this way, you get to sample different flavors, without having to spend more money.
Important tip: It's recommended to shake the K-cup before use. The powder/mix in the K-cup tends to clump, which can have an impact on the taste.
