Once upon a time there was a brilliant person who discovered chocolate. Some time later, or possibly earlier, we’re not quite sure, there lived another genius who discovered coffee. At some point, a third Einstein came along, put the two together and created chocolate coffee, or what most people today call mocha. But it wasn’t until May 2018 that the masterminds at our Landskrona oat factory finally created a liquid oat version of mocha and placed it in a sparkling silver container made of recyclable paper for you to enjoy. How lucky are we to be living in such an amazing time, right?

What might be less amazing
Listed in a somewhat more thoughtful order to avoid starting with the least appetizing word of the three:
Sugar for the sake of taste—but less than 2.5% (which is pretty low compared to other mocha lattes out there, but we’re still going to go ahead and put our cards on the table.) - check.
Stabilizer so that some of the ingredients don’t just sit at the bottom - check. (But it’s still a good idea to shake the container a bit before enjoying.)
Acidity regulator so that the mocha and the oat base mingle nicely on your taste buds - check.
Oat base (water, oats* 10%),coffee extract* 2.8%, sugar* 2.5%, rapeseed oil*, cocoa powder* 0.4%, acidity regulator (calcium carbonate, sodium carbonates), stabiliser (gellan gum), natural flavouring, salt.

The idea is to drink it cold, but if you want to warm it up you’re good too, as long as you pour it out of the carton first.
