- Shoppers are praising a hot chocolate from Avalanche as good for cravings

- People say it's good for those on a Keto diet or who are craving comfort food
Shoppers are praising a $5.50 hot chocolate from New Zealand brand, Avalanche, as the solution to sweet cravings this winter.
The drinking chocolate is not only delicious, but it is also 99 per cent sugar free.
This is thanks to the inclusion of the natural sweetener stevia and erythritol - which contains six per cent of the calories of sugar, but 70 per cent of the sweetness.
Leading Sydney-based eyebrow stylist Kristin Fisher first drew attention to the drinking chocolate.
She said she's been enjoying a cup a night during the cooler months.
She said that drinking the $5.50 product has completely stopped her from craving chocolate after dinner, while giving her a nourishing hit of sweetness in the evening.
And Kristin is not alone in her love of the hot chocolate.
Since she shared it on her Instagram page, others have flooded her account with stories of how much they love the product - but are struggling to find it on Coles Woolworths shelves.
'Northern Beaches are out,' one person posted, alongside a photo of an empty shelf at Woolworths.
Others pointed out it was proving difficult to find in Sydney's eastern suburbs, but they said there was some in Zetland.

So what makes the drinking chocolate a cut above the rest?
'Using only natural ingredients our sugar-free drinking chocolate has a fraction of the calories of other sugar filled beverages,' the New Zealand-based Avalanche website reads.
'Indulge in our great tasting, rich, velvety drinking chocolate without the added sugar.'
Not only is the delicious treat somewhat good for you, but it is also extremely easy to make.
There is no need to boil milk in a pan, simply boil the kettle and add 200ml of water to a sachet.
It is even suitable for those on the Keto diet.
'The best Keto hot chocolate I have had,' one person posted on Instagram.
'This sugar-free hot chocolate is seriously delicious as a little after dinner guilt free treat,' another added.
