Un boisson (ahn bwa/sohn = a drink)
Admittedly, it doesn't have the most exciting name. When I first saw it, it made me thing of those products with the word "lax" in them. It wasn't good.
This drink, which is basically a chocolate milk judging by the few ingredients, is kind of the Ovaltine of France. It has a unique flavor that isn't like ..... well it's not like Nesquik. Despite this it has less than 1% fat so I can understand its appeal. For all those women who are feeling a little "gourmande" - have your chocolate and drink it too!
Created in 1956 by a dairy farmer near Bordeaux, Cacolac is, alas, only available in France. Recent years had seen its decline in popularity, but after being bought out by an industrial giant this year, the hope is to relaunch this now vintage drink. Who knows, maybe you'll see Cacolac gracing your local supermarket shelves très bientôt!
