Boulette's Larder - hot chocolate
I guess I disagree with Mae West's famous quote, "Too much of a good thing is wonderful."
I finally had Boulette Larder's hot chocolate on Saturday and it was like some childhood lesson in greed. The first sip - wonderful, strong, and thick. By the third sip I realized I could not possibly finish it. I have a hard core sweet tooth and love chocolate, but this was too thick to drink and too thin to slice.
Finally, after managing to drink half of it, I went back to their coffee station and refilled my cup with 1% milk, getting the consistency back to something resembling normal, but, of course, ruining the temperature.
On the lighter side (and anything would be lighter than that hot chocolate) I learned the secret to avoiding crowds at the Farmer's Market - get there early on a rainy day. The place was nearly empty.
Sounds like Italian hot chocolate, which is very thick and turns into pudding as it cools down.
Yeah, we have a bunch of these places in NY, and I keep thinking it could be the next cupcake craze. I've actually taken cups home, put it in the fridge and ate it as pudding the next day. Glad to hear you can punish your sweet tooth in the Bay Area now.
The real problem with that stuff is it makes it near impossible to go back to a cup of milk with three scoops of powder ... there must be a healthy in between!
