Time Poor?

So, I was recently informed that we are all "time poor" and that we need quick and convenient food so we can carry on speeding through this fast paced world...

I've been mulling this over and thought I'd throw my 2 cents out there for what it's worth.

If the events of 2020 have taught us anything it is how much we need to (and can) stop. It is important to once in a while just take a breather, reflect, look after ourselves, and work on what is important- family, friends, and our physical and psychological wellbeing.

Kōkō Chaud hot chocolate is the antithesis of the "instant" powders you get in store and or in a café. Why? Because:

  1. it takes time for us to craft, and it will take time for you to make at home; and

  2. convenient foods are very infrequently healthy because they are full of many adulterated ingredients that make you crave more and more.

Now, don't get me wrong - I would never say hot chocolate is a health food! What it is though is a treat and a mode to self reflection and relaxation.

Let me ask you a question which I hope will cause some pause - would you rather drink 10 cups of high calorie or highly caffeinated drinks per week just so you can trudge on, or would you prefer to once or twice a week take a couple of minutes to make yourself a drink that requires you to shut off from the rest of the world, find a quiet place and reset your system? If something is quick and cheap to make, it is so easy to just make cup after cup after cup, not thinking about what you are putting into your body, and definitely you wont be encouraged to sit down and enjoy it.

Here's something to put it into perspective; a 30g serving of Cadbury Hot Chocolate delivers 118 calories,

while 30g of Kōkō Chaud Milking It hot chocolate delivers 135 calories. Yes, Kōkō Chaud has a higher caloric number, but if it takes you a few minutes to make yourself a cup, you will drink less of it and savour it more, meaning that overall you'll be consuming less over time. Sounds a bit silly for us to tell you to drink less of our product, but see here is where we are different from your run-f-the-mill-multinational-corporation - we subscribe to the "quality over quantity" saying that I'm sure you would have heard a million times from your teachers at school.

We provide you with a quality product which will hopefully help you carve out a bit of quality time for yourself. Go on - treat yourself to a slower pace of life!
