It’s the Christmas season and Christmas day is really just a few days away. This December, we have received blessings that made my boys and I truly grateful. One of those blessings is a supply of Jolly Cow’s chocolate milk. A jolly and choco-licious Christmas season indeed!
My boys and I were finally able to try Jolly Cow’s newest chocolate milk which is a product by Denmark and exclusively packed for Fly Ace Corporation.

It is made from real cocoa. It is said to be made from Jolly Cow’s 100% pure cow’s milk with 2.6% butterfat giving it a creamier and tastier taste. It gives you the creamy taste of fresh milk and chocolatey taste of pure cocoa. It is said to have no vegetable fats (palm, coconut or corn oil) were used. I just read that it has a shelf life of 12 months.
We enjoyed drinking it best when it has been chilled well. Shake the box well too before pouring into a glass or cup. Place it in the refrigerator once you opened it and best to consume it within 3 days after opening. With us that is no problem because my boys and I can consume it within one day. 🙂
We first spotted them at the Robinson’s Supermarket in Abreeza Ayala Mall here in Davao. I have been looking for it in other supermarkets and grocery that we frequent with my boys but it is only in Abreeza that we can find them so far. Standard retail price is P86.50 for the 1L pack and P23.75 for the 200ml pack. The 1L pack was just around P82 in Robinson’s while the smaller pack which is perfect for pambaon to school for the kids is only around P22 at the same supermarket.
Hubby came home one Saturday afternoon coming from work with a box of these Jolly Cow Chocolate Milk.
This drink is a combination of choco-licious goodness of milk and cocoa in one. He was knocking at the door and we could here him happily saying in a loud yet funny voice, “Special delivery from Jolly Cow!” My little guy immediately sprang to his feet and rushed to open the door excited as we are to try this new chocolate milk drink.
Someone was so excited to try this chocolate milk drink and he could not wait for it to chill that day his Papa brought this home. He loves it and he said that day was one of the best days ever!
It ain’t as sweet as I thought it would be having less sugar which is just perfectly fine with me since I try my best to control the sugar intake of my little guy. As for me and my hubby, we find that great since we are now avoiding another much sweeter chocolate drink that we used to have before we discovered this Jolly Cow chocolate drink.
This generous supply helped me through the coming days leading to the third grading exams week at school till Christmas break for two weeks as I won’t have to prepare anymore the usual chocolate drink that takes time to prepare which I usually include in my little guy’s snacks brought from home, during recess and lunch at school.
Since my little guy spends more hours now at school, I give him a chocolate drink to boost his energy at school and stay more attentive during class lecture by his teachers. Rather than letting him buy the usual sweet and sugar-loaded artificial drinks they can buy at the school canteen, at least with these I know what he is drinking as we also monitor what he spends his school cash allowance for.
The 1L pack is meant to be consumed at home so when we spent an overnight stay at Seda Abreeza recently, I thought of bringing a pack for my little guy just in case.
While working a bit during our staycation, I also took a few choco-licious sips.
He enjoyed drinking it while indulging with his old fave past time which he hasn’t done in a long while of watching cartoons on cable TV during our stay. He was happy I thought of bringing it there coz I know he will be asking for something to drink and this month his favorite has been the Jolly Cow chocolate milk. It was a miracle that our supply lasted longer than a week.
My two boys are now chocolate milk gulpers finishing a glass of the Jolly Cow in a blink of an eye. Okay I may be exaggerating a little, yes I meant a little. One time after breakfast while our boy was at school, my hubby took it out of the ref and poured himself a full glass.
I still saw him pouring it and we usually get to share drinks from a glass but when I turned to take the glass and drink my share, oh my the glass was empty as if he didn’t pour out the choco milk at all. Just like that! My hubby is not a milk drinker but surprisingly with Jolly Cow it is an exemption. I have to say my boys enjoyed this choco milk drink and am grateful for this generous supply we have. It will now be in my grocery list most probably when the budget allows me to.
Your kids can enjoy choco-licious Jolly Cow chocolate milk drink too by making it a part of your grocery list and giving them a mini pack for their baon to school from now on!
