Lately, we have been indulging in chocolate milk and had the opportunity to try Cocoa Metro -- created by Mike Dunford, a fellow Babson evening MBA student, and his wife, Elizabeth. Positioned as "dark drinking chocolate," Cocoa Metro was recently launched in a few select stores in the Boston area. The milk is made with premium Callebaut natural Belgian chocolate and has five times more chocolate than any other chocolate milk on the market. The milk is sourced from cows in Fairfield, Vermont, and is rBGH-free and bottled locally in Sharon, Massachusetts.
The milk is creamy and the cocoa flavor strong and rich, so this is definitely an indulgent treat that is best consumed in small quantities. We tried it first after a visit to the gym, and again while watching the Pats dismantle the Bucs in London. For dessert, we mixed it with vanilla ice cream to make a chocolate milk float. Alice, who is not much of a milk drinker but loves chocolate ice cream, enjoyed the milk best ice cold and served by itself. Thadd also liked it blended with vanilla ice cream, but Alice found the sweetness too overpowering. Cocoa Metro definitely puts a grown-up twist on traditional chocolate milk.
