Firstly, I would like to take a little bit of appreciation on the new branding and packaging. The woodland creatures and darker packaging really sets the product apart from its former white, clean label and you can tell the company has developed and created a unique brand that appeals to mass market.
Okay let me start with the question on everyones lips “how many syns?” it is 0.5 per level teaspoon and 14 cals. If you use 1 level tablespoon it is 2 syns. Now many people argue this point because 3 tsp are in 1 tbsp so technically that would be 1.5 syns BUT it is 14cals per tsp so 14 x 3 +42cals = 2 syns. Phew! that’s that cleared up 🙂
Now this product is exciting for me because I love chocolate spread in my breakfast, on fruit and in baked oats. Half the syns as normal spread, but what’s the catch? There isn’t one, there is just a different taste. So choc pot to me is more a dark chocolate spread, it has a bournville taste and I love bournville so it’s perfect for me. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate then this isn’t the spread for you! Anymore than 1 tbsp, it is sickly.
In porridge it melts through like a dream, it is easy to spread and it has a thick consistency. It doesn’t taste like the liquid choc shot, I find sometimes the liquid choc shot can have an aftertaste but I don’t find this with the choc pot.
The choc pot is 250g that does seem like a lot but it actually isn’t as much as it seems, it is around 16.5 level tbsp. So if you like to use it everyday like this chocoholic here, then you would need to buy a tub every few weeks. It lasts up to 6 weeks in the fridge, so maybe don’t be like me and have it everyday 😉
Here are a few breakfasts I have been enjoying using choc pot;
