So Creamy

I have been looking for a great cup of hot chocolate for over a year and  now I think I may have hit the jackpot.

 I read an article comparing hot chocolate and it stated that consumers had chosen Land o’ Lakes as their favorite in store brand. I thought I’d try it and was pleasantly surprised. It’s so creamy and yet still chocolatey, a great combination. I loved my first cup and am looking forward to the next one.

Hot Chocolate

One of my favorite things to drink is hot chocolate. I can drink hot chocolate in the winter or the summer. I love it in the morning as well as at night. I just love hot chocolate. But, with this love of hot chocolate, comes a problem. I’m picky with the type of hot chocolate that satisfies me and I have been on a quest to find it close to home.

While attending graduate school, I frequently visited this coffee shop en route to class and would always order hot chocolate. Now I’m not a coffee drinker, but this hot chocolate was very familiar to the taste of coffee. Well, after graduating I was no longer able to visit this particular shop and get my cup of hot chocolate. So, to satisfy my craving I found a coffee shop near home and ordered, what else, a hot chocolate. I smelled its aroma and thought I had hit the jackpot. To my disappointment, this cup of hot chocolate tasted like a melted Hershey’s chocolate bar, extremely too sweet. This is not what I was expecting, not at all.

I have tried McDonald’s hot chocolate, instant packets of hot chocolate, and sooo many other kinds that I’m totally frustrated. I just want to find a decent cup of hot chocolate; not too sweet, not instant-tasting, a coffee aroma and taste, and close to my home, preferably one I can make at home. Please help a sista out. Help me find that perfect cup of hot chocolate. I’ll be forever grateful.
