I've heard that the cranberry/green tea is good hot, but I've never personally tried it. Also the hot cocoa (which is a creamy) is okay. I tried it as a pudding the other night and wasn't a big fan of it. I may try it as a drink later on though.

hot cocoa as a drink is DELISH and is my staple creamy every day

otherwise, Lynn is right--the cranberry/green tea is delicious hot. tastes just like brewed lipton hot tea.

oh leahruthie, I may have to try the green tea one. I've never bought it before. And how do you prepare your cocoa, 4 oz. of hot water?

i have big mugs both at home and at work, so i'm assuming it's more than 4 oz., but basically i just dump the packet in and add boiling water until it's full though i assume it would be even more chocolatey/creamier the less water you use, but i prefer to have a big mug that'll last me a while! and it never really tastes watered down, either... in fact, i like it better than the diet or no-sugar-added varieties of swiss miss.

I'm really jealous of everyone that has the hot cocoa. My center has never had it available since I've started in August. Everytime I go they don't have it. I finally got to try it from a swap basket and it was yummy, especially with a shot of decaf espresso. They always say "we got some in earlier but they sold out that day". I may just have to call them every day asking if they have more until they finally get them in, lol. Because I'm not really fond of the chocolate pudding and I haven't tried the cappucino yet.

This might sound strange but I like to drink the strawberry/banana gelatin hot, I started drinking this past Feb. in the winter when it was cold and it is really good, especially if your sick. I only drink the cranberry green tea hot, and its good too.

I absolutely love the hot cocoa with a splash of cinnamon in the evening. In my opinion the cinnamon adds so much. Makes me feel like I am cheating.

The cappuccino is good hot, but I actually prefer it iced -- maybe I'll change my tune this winter after scooping a boat-load of snow!

You could probably do some unique experimentation, if you wanted, nabeel. If plain old hot cocoa doesn't trip your trigger, add a bit of mint extract. Or add 1/3 to 1/2 packet of the orange concentrate to the cranberry/green tea. Become the master mixologist of the HNS! If you come up with anything else, let me know! Good luck!

Desilu, I am so surprised you have not been able to purchase it at all since August...as I am assuming you go to the same center as me in Fayetteville...I purchased two boxes a couple of weeks ago...I always WI on Tuesday and Friday and buy before the big rush on Saturday...maybe you could purchase the hot chocolate in advance and ask Marty or Sandy at the center to hold it with your name on it...I have done this in the past with a couple of supplements that they could never keep in stock. Good luck...I did go to Bike, Blues and BBQ last night and had fun...not a bike rider, but certainly enjoyed people watching NO food...watched the kids eat though without much thought...just keeping on track with MRC!

I have the hot cappuccino every morning. I was a coffee drinker, so this helps curb that need.

I have bought things in advance because of that and then when things come in, they put it aside with your name on it so you can just pick it up.

My center had mixed up the lemon powder one and orange. Served hot from a coffee pot. It was good. Put in some spices and make it into a a spiced "cider" Bet a couple of cinnamon spice tea bags would give it that apple flavor. Imagine having that hot on a cold snowy day!
