Hot Chocolate in Packages

Hi, I am Looking for the highest quality hot chocolate or "drinking chocolate" in packages to be given as a gift. Preferably in a "milk chocolate" or french vanilla flavour. Any ideas as to brands or location in the GTA/online for that please?

Thank you :)

  1. Soma in the Distillery makes a few different packaged hot chocolate mixes. Not sure about vanilla but you could call to find out.

      I recall that JS Bonbons makes her own dry mix and sells containers of it - I think the only location is at Dupont and Davenport.

        I checked Soma today and the one that contains vanilla also contains two other spices, so there's nothing that's strictly vanilla-flavoured or strictly milk chocolate.

        1. SOMA for sure! I was given a box/pkg set as a gift. The malted milk one is yummy. They are quite intense though, so beware.. I diluted mine with a bit of milk.

            Im thinking of the "malted milk" one from Soma, could you please provide more details on flavour, much is it?

            Thank you :)

          2. Not sure about quality (in fact, suspect not too great), but you can order personalized cocoa packets from many of the online wedding/baby shower favour places.


            1. I don't know if this is helpful or not but this is my favourite hot chocolate and you can buy it in packets....

                There is a $15 gift package of camino at Costco.

                  What about "Schokinag" brand? Ive heard this is very good quality.
