Has anyone tried Bariwise Low Carb Hot Chocolat?  I've been told that it's very good and less than 5 gms carbs per serving and has protein added.

Where do you find it? I really miss hot chocolate - well with rum, but that's another story...

You can find it at dietdirect.com. It isn't cheap about $10 for 7 servings. I was told to use code "Save10" to get a discount-but don't know if that will really work.

Well, since it's 50 degrees here now and all you people are talking about hot chocolate, and I only had several tins of cocoa powder with sugar from last winter, I became desperate.  I mixed about 3 oz of cream with about 3 or 4 oz of water, heated that up in the microwave, stirred in about 2 T of Hersey's cocoa (the kind you can bake with, unsweetened) and part of a packet of stevia.  I had to adjust the stevia and the cocoa to taste but I can tell you it made a decent mug of hot cocoa.  The cocoa box says 3 g carbs for 1 T, so the mug would be approximately 6 g carbs and probably a negligible amount from the cream.  It wasn't a full mug, true, but it hit the spot.  I'm still going to check out sugar-free hot chocolate packages.  Let's put together what we come up with, ok?
yeah

The problem for me with the hot chocolate isn't the sweetness, because I don't mind using Splenda, it's the milk carbs! It's too rich for me when I make it with cream and water... Don't know why...

I think I would rather have a real cup of cocoa, made on the stove, like when I was a kid, than anything else... so I avoid it rather than be disappointed. I am still a brat about some things...

I say go ahead and have some hot chocolate! Maybe just make sure it's the good stuff (just seems more satifying somehow) and have it in an expresso cup instead of a mug. That'll cut the carbs for sure :-)

I received the bariwise hot chocolate and used 1/2 packet with my coffee and cream. It was wonderful. I had a nice chocolaty cup of coffee. Each packet has less than 3g of sugars, 1g of fiber and total carb of less than 5g. The calorie per packet is 70-80 depending on which one you ordered. The effect on my bg was 1 point.
