Now that winter has sort of hit North Carolina, there are some mornings in which I really can’t get going without a hot drink, and I’m not really a coffee person. Ideally, there’d be an LA Burdick right by my lab so that I could grab a cup of drinking chocolate every morning, but alas, I didn’t get into hahvahd for grad school.
Instead, I keep hot cocoa mix handy. Currently, it’s a box of Starbucks Toasted Marshmallow Hot Cocoa, which is okay in a pinch. If you’re curious about how the full line of Starbucks Cocoa tastes, Serious Eats tried them all.
