Starbucks recently came out with a new line of hot chocolate, including their Signature Hot Chocolate, Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, and Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate. These new additions to the Starbucks menu are rich and creamy, made with a blend of four cocoas, sugar, natural vanilla extract and milk.
The Signature Hot Chocolate is wonderfully intense and decadent, with a slight hint of bittersweet dark chocolate, and makes the old Starbucks hot chocolate taste like tap water. A Grande also contains 470 calories, and costs $3.80. So it’s quite the indulgence on all levels.
To be honest, I’ll probably stick to my regular drip coffee or steamed milk routine. Meanwhile, I’ll fantasize about the Signature Hot Chocolate, and satisfy those cravings on the days when I’m in need of serious therapy and renewal.
Have a wonderful weekend!
