Confirmed sighting: Horlicks Extra Light
Posted: 22:16 Thu 06-Dec-2007. Price: £2.34/ 220g jar, 25p/ single sachet. Location: ASDA stores. Sub-flavours: Malt, Malt Chocolate, Dreamy Vanilla, Cosy Caramel, Heavenly Amaretto. Nutritional unusualness: "Less than 40 calories" per serving.
"TalkShowHost" reports: I've loved
Horlicks for years and would be one of the first people to agree that it helps contribute towards a good night's sleep. So when I saw an extra light variety I was braced for disappointment (not many brands survive the lessening of calories. Just look at
Walkers Lights, the diet Mars bars and the low fat Cadbury Dairy Milk - to name but three examples).
I must say that I was very impressed with the malt flavour. It was very creamy and has a milky texture to it - ideal for dipping a nice digestive or two into the mug. The chocolate malt is quite the opposite though. Whilst the flavour is okay, the consistency is horrible. Small amounts of the powder refuse to dissolve and seem to hover around on the surface to form a slimy skin. This is definitely not what I want before I go to sleep at night! I would definitely buy the malt flavour in place of the other Horlicks "calorie versions" due to the fact that it is actually nicer. The chocolate version has already been given to a neighbour with a lie that it is not that bad at all.
...Another characteristically impartial sighting from "TalkShowHost" here - though, in other malted alternatives, I can also reveal that Maltesers Hot Chocolate (Tesco, £1.69) is exactly like a cross between a Twix Super Thick Shake and those microwaveable Moment Du Chocolats, but with a sachet of meltable Maltesers in the lid. Oh, and has anyone here tried Galaxy Hot Chocolate Bliss?

Comment: Caramel and Amaretto are 10p a sachet in Home Bargains and B&M Bargains.
Which doesn't bode well for the future of the line, admittedly.
