Indulge yourself in the silky smooth goodness of our Milka Hot Chocolate, created by the renowned Phillipe Suchard in 1901. This decadent beverage is beautifully blended with our milk creamer T DISC that naturally creates a smooth, velvety layer for a delectable finish.

Milka has been around forever in Europe. Their chocolate bars are really wonderful. I wish they were easily found here in the LA area. Anyway...
This beverage comes with the condensed chocolate disc and cream disc. You put the chocolate one in first then the cream.
The result is a creamy and sophisticated hot cocoa.
Note- sometimes the chocolate disc needs to be warmed for a few minutes in warm water so that it comes out easily in the process.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A comforting cup of hot chocolate from one of Europe's premier chocolatiers, brewed to creamy perfection in your TASSIMO® machine. This rich chocolate experience is a perfect indulgence for a little pick-me-up in the afternoon.

If you love specialty hot chocolate, you will probably not like this product. If you are more sophisticated, buy the Milka.
This hot chocolate does not need a creamer disc so it makes the cup in one easy step. Kids will love it. You may want to dress it up with marshmallows, whipped cream, or Irish cream (don't use the Irish cream for kids, though). A big plus is that It is less expensive than Milka.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I normally don't have Chai teas nor lattes... but this is a delicious treat. The aroma has wonderful notes of cloves and spices from foreign lands. The creamer accentuates the flavor of the tea with a rich fattiness.
It goes well on a cold evening and a good book.
It is a good guest pleaser, too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

With a medium body, perfectly balanced, and wonderfully smooth, this Signature Blend was personally crafted by the Gevalia Master Coffee Taster. Expertly brewed with just a single tap of a button, its smooth character makes it perfect for any occasion, any time of day.

I always have this in my cupboard and go through a lot of it on a monthly basis.
It is an average coffee with a smooth taste that does not linger on your tongue. It lends itself well to flavored creamers.
However, its overwhelming best characteristic is that I can find it anywhere they sell Tassimo machines. If I ever run out of coffee and cannot wait 2 weeks for my online order to be delivered- I can make a run to get some packages easily.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This coffee has a wonderful smell as it being brewed- it really filled my kitchen with scents of vanilla and roasted nuts.
Here's the bad part- it tasted too artificial. It does say "artificial flavor" on the package. It has a bitter taste that doesn't fit the aroma. If you are used to strong coffees you may like it.
Perhaps it would make a good iced coffee... I will have to experiment...
No, I do not recommend this product.

I really enjoy Nabob coffee. It is a gentle coffee without the heavy, burned tastes of some other very popular brands (Starbucks, namely). Nabob is easy to drink because it is well balanced.
Nabob originated from British Columbia, Canada. I hear it is very popular there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Kenco Medium Roast (and its crema variety) makes a coffee that is just right- not strong and burned tasting. It easily blends with creamers to enhance the experience.
I am not a fan of Starbucks and its harsh taste and odor. Kenco and Nabob offer a kinder, more sophisticated flavor.
Yes, I recommend this product.

How do you get all of the chocolate syrup out of the Milka T-DISCs?

I have yet to brew a cup of Milka Hot Chocolate where I didn't first have to rub the T-DISC between my hands for a good minute or two before placing it into my Tassimo. If I don't "pre-warm" the T-DISC, the chocolate syrup contained inside simply doesn't completely melt/dissolve when hot water is injected. It took several watery cups of hot chocolate to finally figure this out. Is there something else that can be done so that I don't have to go through this silly routine?
I understand your dilemma... I haven't that problem save for a couple times. The only remedy I can think if pre-warming like you have been doing. Maybe have a cup of warm water and allow the disc to heat up in it for minute or two.

is nabob coffee decafanated ???

Alfred,
Nabob is not decaffeinated. Unless it explicitly says, "Decaffeinated" on its packaging, it has caffeine.
It is a very good coffee, though... one of my favorites.
I hope this helps.

where can I purchase in my home town the NABOB Columbian 100% that you sell. .

Salvatore,
Unfortunately, there are very few stores that have a variety of Tassimo discs. I, too, am disappointed in this. The best bet is to order it online.
Best of luck to you.
