Silly Cow Marshmallow Swirl Hot Chocolate
All natural and organic hot chocolate mix spied at Whole Foods on special for $4.99. I am a hot chocolate lover and drink it consistently all year long even when it's hot outside. I like finding new brands to try. Whole Food's does pretty good with fun options to try that aren't too risky or expensive like some of the chocolate bar producer versions. I discovered Allegro Single Origin hot chocolate last year or earlier this year, and the Peru 68% made my top ten list for best hot cocoa's.
From the Bread and Chocolate Inc. in Wells River, Vermont, Silly Cow comes in a cute milk bottle and filled exactly all the way to the top. Be careful opening it as it sort of popped due to it's fullness. A very full 16.9 oz.
I prepped my evening hot chocolate with scaled vanilla almond milk. This hot chocolate tastes like classic powdered hot chocolate but a bit more rich. I always do more scoops than the recommended. It's fairly sweet with the natural marshmallow flavoring, but the marshmallow flavor is definitely there and noticeable. As I said, it makes it a lot sweeter but in a good way.
It's like the Swiss Miss hot chocolate packets, but all natural. Definitely richer, and more creamier, but that classic hot chocolate taste is the same. I liked it, but I will say it's not as rich or good as the Allegro brands. This is a hot chocolate you buy for your kids and have fun with the classic milk bottles. Might not be that uncommon for Vermont folks, but city kids will get a kick out of it.
Ingredients: Natural cane sugar, Dutch processed cocoa (with alkali), natural marshmallow flavor (vanilla, dextrose and silicon dioxide [to prevent caking]).
