Nowadays, most startup beverage companies are focused on things like energy drinks, coconut water, and antioxidant laden juice drinks, it’s refreshing to see a company that’s doing something as seemingly simple as chocolate milk. Really, we don’t remember ever seeing a start-up chocolate milk company, but hey, there’s a first for everything. Fortunately, Cocoa Metro has created what we can safely call the best chocolate milk ever created – they’ve nailed both the flavor and the packaging. Inside the bottle, Cocoa Metro is rich and velvety, with a chocolate flavor that’s best compared to melted chocolate ice cream. There’s a slight grit from the Belgian chocolate, but that only reinforces the quality of ingredients that they’ve used. And unlike your typical mass produced chocolate milk, this product has only five ingredients. On the outside, we love the heavy, old-fashioned glass bottle, which is a throwback to the days of the milk man. The minimalist design is clean and visually appealing, with the white text working with the brown backdrop to let your senses focus on the richness of the chocolate milk that’s waiting inside the bottle. Overall, Cocoa Metro is the perfect example of how a classic product with a modern touch can create a product that’s as relevant and exciting as any trendy beverage on the market today. Without hesitation, this is a five star product.
