The idea behind this Ice Shoko is that you can either drink it as a rich chocolate milk or you can freeze it and enjoy it as an ices, sort of a "chocolate sorbet" pop.
As many years as I have happily been living here in Israel, drinking chocolate milk (or any drink) out of a bag is still odd and unnatural for me, but generations of Israeli kids seem to enjoy it immensely, so who am I to question it.
This Ice Shoko is sold in a package of 8 bags; each individual bag has just 75 milliliter of chocolate milk in them. That's actually quite a small amount. When I poured it into a cup it was only approximately half a cup full.
As a cold drink this Ice Shoko was richer and thicker than your average chocolate milk. I did enjoy it but thought it was a little too chocolaty. The fact that it's such a small amount wasn’t such a problem after all, considering it's such a rich chocolaty beverage.
I actually think that if you're looking for a drink most kids would prefer the original Yotvata Chocolate Milk over this thicker, smaller option.
Frozen it was much more enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it as a sorbet/ice pop. The ice cold, rich, creamy, fudgy, chocolate consistency was a wonderful treat when I got home from a long hot walk.
As ices, the size was just perfect; it wasn’t too big or too small. Aside from which, enjoying it out of a "bag" frozen was not strange to me at all, I've had many an ices that comes packaged, in plastic, just like this Ice Shocko.
Yotvata's Ice Shoko is made with 2.5% fat milk and has added vitamin D.
Bottom Line: Frozen, this Yotvata Ice Shoko is a real winner for me. Considering its only 92 calories per bag I think it can be a great chocolaty treat on a hot summer's day, for kids of all ages.
