A decadent fusion of chocolate and coffee with the flavor of amaretto. Tiramisu is one of the most popular Italian desserts. All the flavours of cake dipped in coffee, layered with egg yolks, mascarpone and amaretto have been captured in this hot chocolate.
Not sure why people think this is too bitter when it tastes like a tiramisu! The coffee and amaretto is definitely strong, and you may need to use less powder as you would with perhaps the Luxury. The chocolate takes a backseat in this, but it is a lovely tiramisu drink, almost like a mocha.
Where's the tiramisu taste?

This flavour sounded delicious, but actually the drink tastes nothing like Tiramisu. The taste is more like an unsweetened, natural "proper" cocoa.
Nice but not what was expected

I adore tiramisu and had to buy one of these tubs of tiramisu hot chocolates to try! It was ok, but not the taste of tiramisu I was expecting, more of a strong coffee with a almond taste, but still nice, but too sweet for me. I love the mint one and the white chocolate and also the 70% cocoa one! I have just spotted the rhubarb one so may try that next :P
Nothing like any Tiramisu I've tasted

If you like Marzipan, you might like this. If you love Tiramisu, you will hate it. It has a very strong taste of almonds whereas I was expecting coffee. For me, it tastes vile and have stored it where it belongs: in the wheelie bin.
Review of Tiramisu Hot Chocolate.
21st October 2012 Posted by
The powder smells very pleasant, however, when made up into a drink (following the instructions) the taste is overwhelmingly of bitter almonds, and the bitterness is too strong for my taste. Interestingly, my husband finds it too sweet while I find it isn't sweet enough! We both agree the flavour isn't really like a good Tiramisu.
To make it more drinkable, I mix it half:half with White Hot Chocolate. It's quite good then. I shall also try using it to flavour butter icing (as mentioned in another review here).
There are more palatable flavours in the hot chocolate range, so I will use this up but probably won't be buying it again.
It's a grower

Bought this because I loved the sound of It. First couple of times I tried it I wasn't sure about the flavours but now I've had it a couple more times I love the hint of coffee flavour and am drinking it most mornings! Very nice!

I have not tried this as a drink yet but have used it to flavour cupcakes and the butter icing and they taste delicious, the flavour is perfect.

This is my favourite hot chocolate. At first , I wasn't even sure I liked it but now I rarely drink any of the others. It has a full, rich coffee and chocolate flavour and is delicious for breakfast.

Disappointing. The taste is unpleasant and the after taste is even worse. Definitely not what I was expecting; I can't help but feel a bit ripped off.

This was horrible. The coffee flavour was harsh and if you followed the instructions, the drink tasted like tar. I think 1 star is too much.
