    Has anyone tried warming the chocolate pack up ??

    When I was on LT of a night time for dinner I liked to make the chocolate with hot water instead of cold because it was comforting and made me feel all nice inside...something the soups don't do on this - only the tomato.

    Has anyone tried this on Exante....???

    I still find the soups alot more flavourless which I suppose is a good thing...I like the vanilla though, something I hated on LT.

    Thanks in advance :) x

    Hi Cherise, yes people do heat them up, some even have it with their coffee. Apparently they are very nice hot, I have not tried them hot.

    I have the vanilla one hot in the morning and add coffee to give me a kick start. Then either a cold strawberry or banana for lunch and a hot chocolate at night. Someone suggested adding some peppermint tea to the chocolate so I am going to give that a go for a bit more variety!

    Thanks guys, I did the peppermint tea with the chocolate sparkle I didn't like it very much - though I'm not mad on peppermint :) The hot vanilla and coffee sounds nice, I have tried coffee in the vanilla cold. I might give that one a go. !

    I meant to say the shakes are alot more flavourless not the soups :) Sorry for my mistake.

    I shall have a hot one later then :) yum x

    I havent tried any of the shakes hot yet, how do you get the lumps out? I tend to have them cold using one of those shaker things. You know, like this Lucozade Sport 750ml Shaker Bottle: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Leisure

    I can imagine some sort of distaster happening if I tried that with hot water though! So I would be interested to hear.

    I don't really "do" hot drinks (don't drink tea or coffee) but I've done my shakes hot to test them, I like the hot chocolate (although I add a tablet sweetener) and I also like hot banana with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top!

    I like the choc hot too, with a sweetener, and I use my hand blender to mix it up, you are right, in the shaker it would explode!!!

    i have hot choccie, but only use half of sachet this gives me 2 drink to make it last. i add a sweetner and just give it a good stir, i don;t whisk as i actually enjoy the thick froth left on top, cause i dip my finger in and give it a good lick, it reallf feels like i am spoiling myself as the skin is so lovely, well i think so, go on give it a try, mix and leave for few minutes then dunk yr finger, yum yum

    I've not tried the shakes hot yet, but I did freeze one this week to take to work without spillage. It took me about an hour to eat and while Ben and Jerry have nothing to worry about, it didn't taste half bad...
