Nothing But Great Taste With Cocio

Cocio was born as a favorite classic drink in Denmark last 1951. Anker Pallesen had a vision of making the best chocolate milk in the world together with his wife Ella. It was born with 3 natural ingredients: milk, cocoa and sugar. It slowly popularized that in 1964, they had to look for a bigger manufacturing plant to cater the clamor of its loyal drinkers. In 1974, the in can version was introduced and it reached out more people in the process. American Borden Group bought the company at 1976 but it was procured back at 1999 by a Danish company. In 2001, Cocio sold and produced 800,000 cans & bottles per day. In 2008, it was sold to Arla, one of the leading dairy company in Denmark. It is available in 8 European countries namely Denmark, United Kingdom, Germany, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and Greece.

The brand was made available in the Philippine shores last September 2015. Currently, there are two flavors available: Cocio Classic (original chocolate milk) and Cocio Dark (dark chocolate).

Did you know that the recipe of Cocio is still the same since it was first produced in 1951?
Are you Team Cocio Classic or Team Cocio Dark?

What I really like about Cocio Classic is that it brings back childhood memories. It’s tradition meets modern: traditional great taste in a modern labeled glass bottle. What else can you ask for? For Cocio Dark, it reminds me of rainy days where you enjoy a nice warm chocolate drink while watching the raindrops in your window. The richness of the cocoa flavor unleashes on every sip.

Cocio Classic: when tradition meets modern

You can enjoy your favorite Cocio drink while watching a movie, strolling at the mall or just simply in your office space / classroom. It’s simple. No additives nor preservatives. Nothing but great taste! It’s a personal favorite by The Tennis Foodie. I personally like both flavors but Cocio Dark really left a mark. This is an ACE for me while Cocio Classic is a HIT. So I guess I’m Team Cocio Dark then.

  1. I’ve never tried Cocio. I used to live in Belguim and it wasn’t a thing there, but I’ve heard about it. I wonder if I’d like it or hate it. Is it one of those foods that people either love or hate?

  2. Mmm this sounds really nice! I would be team classic I think. Don’t think you can get this in then UK which is a shame!

  3. Oh yum! I love everything chocolate so I need to try this asap. Chocolate drinks can really satisfy the sweet tooth while being refreshing – it’s a great combo!
