I know it’s not winter yet, so why am I constantly feeling in need of a hot chocolate drink?
It probably does have something to do with the recent drop in temperature, but I don’t need much excuse to enjoy a good cup of cocoa. I’ll happily slip a little chocolate powder into my morning cup of coffee just to get me started!
However, there are some cocoa powders which deserve to be enjoyed just as they are, especially Green & Black’s Organic Hot Chocolate Drink.
Whether you’re drinking it with hot milk or using boiled water the taste is luxurious, full of depth, rich and very chocolatey. It’s not too sweet which allows for other subtleties of flavour with the tiniest bitter bite that every cup of cocoa should have.
The short list of ingredients is another hint of the chocolate’s quality, as is the fact that it is fairtrade and organic. But, if you’re a chocoholic like me, you probably don’t need much reason to grab yourself a jar of this upmarket cocoa. Simply promise me that you won’t waste it in your coffee.
