‘This is just a PSA out there to anyone who loves Caramilk chocolate just as much as I do,’ Ms Smith says in the clip.
She continues: ‘I found it in drinking form, and I don’t know if this is common knowledge or not but to me it wasn’t … when I tell you it tastes just like Caramilk in a drinking form I mean it is amazing and tastes so good.’
Sydney content creator Brooklyn tried the drink on Ms Smith’s recommendation and called her a ‘legend’ for discovering the low-calorie dupe.
Viewers were quick to jump on the bandwagon, with one woman saying she had added the hot chocolate to next week’s shopping list.
‘I love this s**t, it’s heaven,’ added another.

And it’s not the first time Avalanche, which also makes a range of coffee and collagen based drinks, has seen one of its products go viral.
Back in 2019, shoppers went wild for its classic $5.50 hot chocolate sachets which were hailed a low-calorie solution to sugar cravings in winter.
Leading Sydney brow artist Kristin Fisher first drew attention to the drink, telling her Instagram followers she had been enjoying a cup each night during the cooler months.
Ms Fisher said the water-soluble power stopped her from craving chocolate after dinner, while giving her a hit of sweetness she needed in the evening.

Avalanche drinks are so low in calories thanks to one key ingredient – natural sweetener stevia and erythritol, which contain just six percent of the calories of sugar, but 70 percent of its sweetness.
‘Using only natural ingredients our sugar-free drinking chocolate has a fraction of the calories of other sugar filled beverages,’ the Avalanche website reads.
Not only is it low in sugar, it only takes seconds to make.
There’s no need to warm milk in a pan, simply boil the kettle and add 200ml of water to a sachet.
