Seriously, how can you say no to hot cocoa?
Well, maybe you can, but I can't. The nice folks at Stephen's Gourmet sent me three cans to try and it was about two seconds after I opened the box when I cracked open the first can - the Orange Creme. I have no idea why I decided to try that one first, since I generally don't like chocolate and fruit.
Much to my surprise, I liked it. Go figure.
Next I tried the Italian Amaratto, but I didn't drink it on its own. I made a less-strong cup of coffee in the morning and boosted the flavor with the chocolate. Another winner. But, like I said, how can you go wrong with hot cocoa?
After I got these, I realized that I used to buy this brand at a local store, but then it disappeared, and I hadn't looked for it for a while. So I was glad to see that it's still available.
By the way, this is the type of cocoa that you mix with hot water rather than milk, which is kind of handy, since it always seems like I want a mug of cocoa when the milk is running low.
So there we go. Hot cocoa. Three cans for me and three cans for one of you.
Stephen's Gourmet provided cocoa for me to sample and will be sending cocoa to the giveaway winner. Winner gets to choose flavors from among: candy cane, pumpkin spice, orange crème, cookies ‘n crème and amaretto.
