Paging a benevolent UK member for a food-finding mission!

I finally ran out of the Options stash that I've been rationing for the past 2 years. It is my favorite hot chocolate in the entire universe and I can't find places that sell the sachets online.

If any of the UK members would be willing to buy me a few boxes of the different flavors, I would be ridiculously grateful. Of course I would pay all the expenses.

I wish they would sell it in the States, it's so good!

It's a low-cal hot chocolate, but tastes so much better than all the US ones. I love it! I haven't had regular hot chocolate in a really long time, so I don't know if it's better than the fully loaded stuff.

Jessani, you should try the Williams-Sonoma hot chocolate and make it with skim milk. It is DIVINE and the skim milk helps keep the calories down!!

You should check and see if you have a british shop in your area and they probably might carry it. There are a couple of british shops in my area and I go there now and then to get some chocs and biscuits and other stuff. They usually carry a decent selection of british foods and condiments.

I'm always happy to help with things like this too.

I completely understand your addiction! I buy the Options sachets every week when i go shopping - the white chocolate one is really nice and they do a toffee one as well which i love.

Weirdly enough i bought a big tub of the Maltesers hot chocolate earlier today and had a mug of it with my lunch! It's yummy as well!

If aspartame is artificial, then yes it does

My ex was from London. One time we were on a cruise and stopped at British Virgin Islands and there was a Brit store. He went crazy with snacks/food he used to eat when he was a kid. He brought home half a suitcase as well.
