Penzeys hot chocolate...

I placed my Penzeys order and forgot to order the hot chocolate I wanted to try. It's getting to be that time of year here in Frostbite Falls and I'd really like some. Has anyone tried Penzeys? Or, possibly do you have a good alternative?

Cadbury Drinking Chocolate is soooo good! It's imported (ie real Cadbury, not the Hershey's knock off) and sort of hard to find, at least around here. I stock up when we pass a Wegman's grocery store.

For a change I sometimes enjoy Ovaltine malted chocolate--it's a flash back to my childhood!

I need to check them out, since so many of you guys talk about the company...

jkath, I had never heard of them either until I joined this board. Everyone here who orders from this company seems to have RAVE reviews.

I was recently introduced here, as well. They're great spices, fantastic customer service and downright wonderful prices...except on vanilla and you can't hold that against them.

My first penzys order was a HUGE success. I will never again buy spices from the supermarket.

I am very curious about their hot chocolate too. I saw that in their catalog I just got the other day. I might just have to place another order soon and give it a shot.

Otter, if Penzey's has Mexican Chocolate (comes in a big bar) you should try it. Break some off or grate it, put it in a saucepan with some milk and heat it up almost to boiling so that the chocolate melts. Its very different and very delicious. I like cinnamon dashed in the cup too.

Deb, Penzeys doesn't seem to be too heavy into chocolate - all they have is regular hot chocolate mix, mint hot chocolate mix, natural cocoa powder and Dutch process cocoa powder, unless I'm missing something. I can't believe I left the hot chocolate off the order - that was one of the main reasons I placed the order in the first place!

I was rumbling around in my cupboard and I have some Toll House baking cocoa. They have a couple of recipes on the package for making hot chocolate, so I'll probably try that route first since I already have it on hand.
