Horlicks Review & Giveaway

Horlicks is a drink I remember fondly from childhood, as a warming drink on a cold winters day, or a drink before bedtime to give me a good nights sleep.  They now produce a ‘Light Chocolate’ version with 55% less fat than the original recipe, meaning less calories per cup – perfect!

WP_20160219_14_38_14_ProA mug of Horlicks Traditional is packed with 14 key nutrients including Vitamin B6 which contributes to the normal functioning of both the nervous and immune system and can reduce tiredness and fatigue. It is also low fat and a source of protein.

As well as the powedered drink, Horlicks have released some vintage inspired goodies to store your Horlicks in and drink it out of.  I love the old fashioned style tins and they make a great accessory for the kitchen.

I’ve been having a nightly cup of Horlicks over the last week or so when the evenings have been chilly and have to say the taste really surprised me.  It seemed nicer than I remember from years ago and definitely a drink I’ll include in my bedtime routine over the winter months.  It’s frothy and creamy yet so simple to mix up with hot water, well worth a try!

  1. I always make sure everything for the following day is done at least an hour before going to bed. That way I can start winding down before snuggling up in bed with a good book 🙂

  2. No screen time half an hour before hand and no eating two hours before bed.
    Basically half hour of chilling out before bed.

  3. Definitely no ipad or TV in bed, and read a book or kindle (but not kindle on an ipad or kindle fire etc).

  4. My top tip is to relax before going to bed.. so I have started switching off the laptop about an hour before and doing some colouring instead!

  5. Relax before sleeping, I always read a book. I also switched off the clock radio in our room as I found myself constantly waking up and checking the time – I sleep much better now.

  6. Lavender is lovely to relax the body in a bath and on the pillow. Plus, I always find reading helps me to get sleepy. ☺️

  7. I try not to use any technology at least an hour before bedtime, clean sheets, I always turn my pillow over at night as dust and pollen settle on it during the day.

  8. Don’t have technology in the bedroom – the rules of feng shui suggest that anything other than sleep should be done elsewhere 🙂

  9. Turn off all the gadgets (hard to do I know!), make a hot drink and try to wind down before you turn the lights off 🙂

  10. I always drink a mug of nighttime tea an hour before bed and read a few pages in bed. I use a lovely smelling lavender pillowspray too that usually does the trick

  11. My best tip is not to have children! but failing that, going to bed and getting up at roughly the same time each day, and a milky drink, like horlicks before bed

  12. Wear something really comfy in bed. Nice, soft fabrics, nothing with straps that dig in or something that twists round you in the night.

  13. Have a notebook and pen on the side table, that way if you find that you have thoughts running through your mind preventing you from sleeping you can write them down. This will remove them from your thoughts and let you sleep peacefully.

  14. I put on Mellow Magic on my DTV and turn the volume down low. With the ‘sleep’ timer set I listen to slow songs to drift off to sleep.

  15. Use apps such as flux if you use technology to dim the lights on your laptop/phone when the sun goes down and have a set bedtime, go to bed around the same time each day.

  16. Leave technology, games and tv alone for half and hour before going to bed and it should stop your mind from racing when in bed.

  17. A hot bath, warm milky drink and a good read snuggled up in bed always help me get to sleep and sleep well x

  18. always have a cold room – makes me want to snuggle under those duvets and get a good nights sleep even more

  19. I have a hot drink. Either Horlicks or Hot Chocolate. I also find eating a Banana 15 minutes before bedtime, helps me sleep xx

  20. turn off electronic devices at least half an hour before bedtime. I don’t drink coffee or tea after 4pm. If I want a hot drink I have fruit or herbal tea, or hot chocolate.

  21. make sure your bedroom is at the right temperature and that it is a quiet, peaceful room that you look forward to relaxing in at night

  22. a hot bath with some lavendar bath bubbles, then jump into bed and read a book until i cool down a bit and fall asleep

  23. If you have a snoring partner or other noises going on, then ear plugs work wonders for me. Nothing fancy, think mine were a quid from a local discount store! xx

  24. Turn off your phone notifications, TV etc no reaching to check messages. That screen will suck you in and keep you awake!

  25. I have a relaxing bath with the lights dim and some candles then I put warm pjs on and get into bed with a hit milky drink 🙂

  26. I always read before going to sleep, although sometimes this results in me falling asleep before I put the book down!
