What is it?
Every now and then I crave chocolate milk. While I peruse the beverage section’s numerous options, there always seems to be one beacon, one brand living up to its name by calling out to me – “Yoo-hoo.” So, why wouldn’t I pounce on the newest flavor in Yoo-hoo’s chocolate “drink” arsenal? As far as I can tell this is the first time Yoo-Hoo has ever added peanut butter to its classic recipe. What took so long?!
How is it?
Are you a fan of Yoo-hoo like I am? If so, it’s right on par. I imagine there are many people that prefer chocolate milk to Yoo-hoo’s thinner, more watery “drink,” so I can tell you this version is a tad creamier than normal Yoo-hoo, but still nowhere near the consistency of milk. As a skim guy, it has never bothered me. This tastes like Yoo-hoo with a pronounced peanut flavor. I wouldn’t describe it as super “peanut-buttery” per se, but it’s still tasty. There’s a delicious aftertaste that made me feel like I just ate peanut brittle.
Is there anything else I need to know?
This doesn’t contain actual peanuts so you can pack one in your kid’s lunch with no worries. This was the first time I’ve had a drink in box form in probably two decades, and it’s small, so they went down super easy. I had two at a time. They are low in calories, a good source of vitamins, and actually curbed my appetite a bit so they make for a good snack.
If you like Yoo-hoo, I see no reason why you wouldn’t dig this. It’s a slight remix on a successful formula. Don’t expect to be blown away with peanut butter flavor, and since these are tiny and aimed at children, know that you’re probably gonna breeze through a 12 pack.
