The last countdown to Christmas is here, it’s December 1st! I can’t believe how fast the past weeks went by.
First time I try this but I really love the idea of writing a blog everyday of the month.
Well, let’s start with the first BLOGMAS of this year !
December 1, 2017
Yesterday we had the first snow here in Belgium. I was really surprised by the amount of snow that fell in the afternoon while I was at work. I really love the snow, watching it fall down makes me happy.
When I see snow, I instant think … HOT CHOCOLATE !
Oh yeah, this autism girl really has a big love for chocolate milk. Every morning I drink a glass of Oatly chocolate milk. I just can’t start my day without chocolate milk.
For my hot chocolate I’m a big fan of the Nesquik powder to put in my hot milk (most of the time hot Oatly milk).
Last year I bought this little box for my hot chocolate in March, I guess. In this box I had some leftover because the weather started to be very good here, way too good for drinking a hot chocolate milk.
This year I bought the ‘dark chocolate’ version of Nesquik to give it a try. This one…
But honestly I didn’t like this powder. The taste is a bit strange and it doesn’t taste like my normal chocolate milk. Yess, here we go. This is a very negative thing about having autism. If it doens’t taste like i’m used to, than it’s a NOOOO.
Normal people with autism doesn’t like to try new things, but I do. I can change the brand of a product I used to or in this case try the other product of the chocolate powder. Honesty, most time I don’t like the change and I’m back to the brand/product I’m using for ages now.
Yesterday I was in the Lidl store here in my area. That dark chocolate powder of Nesquik was not good for me. So I needed another powder because I really wanted a hot chocolate milk.
In that Lidl store I found this chocolate powder, so I bought it. (the monkey took my attention, I have to admit)
Tonight I’ve giving this powder a try by making me a hot chocolate milk with some hot Oatly oat milk.
OMGosh this was soooooo good. It was like drinking a nice glass of Oatly chocolate milk but than a hot milk.
It’s such a good powder for chocolate milk. Oh yummie yummie.
One thing is clear now … from now I will always buy this powder insteat of the all know Nesquik. I’m getting a Lidl fan here, since we have a brand new store.
So wasting by trying stuff I’m not like?
Well, no I’m not wasting the product if I don’t like. I give it to family who likes it of want it. Like this powder of Nesquik, I will make hot chocolate milk for when my family comes over (maybe it’s better with normal milk for me).
If I buy another brand of cookies, muesli, etc and I don’t like it … well some animals here at home are happy with it.
At this moment, I think I’m giving some other products from Lidl (#lidl Belgium) a try. I will be good for when I’m moving in February. Now I have to go to a few stores to find the products I need. It will be so good to just have to go to one store and a store for catfood.
Going to a supermarket is so stressfull for me. I always have to take an extra piece of medication before I go and I have to take something for my headache when I get home.
Less stress, hopefully less pain and a better life with autism.
What’s your favorite brand to make a hot chocolate milk?
Do you guys have a Lidl supermarket near you? What are some other products that are worth trying?
Blogmas … till tomorrow!

Tomorrow I have to work the whole day because we have a sale in the store, specially for ‘Sinterklaas‘. The 6th of December is a Childerns day when they get a lot of present and chocolate. More about that later, first I have to survive my workday with a lot of pain. Hope it will be a good day.
