I have not bought Penzey's hot chocolate because I read the label and it seemed rather high in sodium to me. I will wait for your opinion, Maverick. Or perhaps, your wife's opinion. lol We Hungarian women must stick together. lol

Has anyone ever had a green earl grey tea? I know it sounds different but it is pretty wonderful.

OK, so she is sitting right here next to me, reads your post, and starts laughing at me....

We will give it a try next time we are up that way, which should be in the next couple of days, and see how it is. If it is high in sodium, she will detect it right away and be sure to let me know it is too salty... she is good at making her feelings known...

You know the three marshmallow recipes that I posted in the candy page (regular, peppermint and chocolate) they go really well with hot cocoa and are very easy to make. Just sayin'....

All this talk of cocoa, I just had to make myself a cup of Sipping Chocolate. It is not as sweet as some but I like it. I even use fat free milk. So, I can tell myself that it is good for me. lol.

the best tea that i've found, outside of ireland, is from here: www.harney.com

i love the early grey supreme, and several of the greens, and rooibos.


has anyone tried the ghirardelli double chocolate hot cocoa mix? i was just given a can.

Geez Susan you sure know which buttons to push with her don't ya??

Apparently tomorrow I am tasked with searching for said threads and attempting to make marshmallows soon thereafter!

As for the Giardella (sp?) double chocolate mix, we had it and thought it was too chocolaty for us.. we prefer the milk chocolate mix.. but then the wife is one of those rarities among women in this world that doesn't really care for chocolate that much...

No wonder I have my work cut out for me!

No worries on the sodium Maverick, the jar indicates 0 mg for sodium. That's one element I find myself watching even more than fat/calories, so I sat up straight when I read Susan's post. Perhaps it was another brand? Gosh I hope it hasn't changed. The entire ingredients list (on this particular jar) is sugar, natural cocoa, ceylon cinnamon and real vanilla beans.

As for tea (again), my grandma served me a surprisingly smooth Bigelow Earl Gray over the weekend. And I'll second the nod for Harney teas, really nice line!

Isn't "fat free milk" an oxymoron? think about it!
