What's the healthiest kind of chocolate milk?

My kids drink chocolate milk way better than regular white milk. What's the healthiest kind? I don't mind them having it as a treat, but I don't want to load them up with high-fructose corn syrup, which is what the pre-made chocolate milk at the supermarket has. Hershey's syrup? Nesquik? Ovaltine? Other chocolate syrups or powdered mix?
Nesquik has a no-sugar added powder (they use milk products in it, so it's not lactose free). That's what I give Danae when she's in a chocolate milk mood.

we either get chocolate silk or silk light. and since majerle is a horrible eater, she will get chocolate pediasure from time to time.
Nesquik has a chocolate syrup that is marked "1/3 less sugar" which seems ok to me. I've been boycotting Nestle since high school, but had to break down and buy this in my attempts to get Sandhya to take formula.


Ingredients

SUGAR, WATER, COCOA, COLOUR, SALT, CITRIC ACID, VANILLIN, POTASSIUM SORBATE, FERRIC ORTHOPHOSPHATE.

Not sure if this is the same product that you get in the US or not.


Check the label on different brands of pre-made chocolate milks at the store. I just checked mine and it doesn't have HFCS. It's from Byrne Dairy which I think is local-ish to my area (and I also love them because their milk has no hormones).

If you happen to have a Costco nearby, I buy either the case of the Horizon chocolate milk boxes or Kirkland brand (which is like Costco's own version of Horizon) for my son. They're both made with no HFCS and are organic.

Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

I just do a drop of hershey's chocolate in Horizon 2% milk. My son just discovered chocolate milk...so he thinks a drop is awesome!
My girls don't drink milk. I keep them away from most dairy other than occasional cheese. We drink chocolate almond milk.
