Hot Chocolate in Packages

exotik1 Oct 25, 2008 09:37 PM

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 :)

    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.

        JS Bonbons is closed.

        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.

        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.

          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.

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

                Im still on my quest for the best "drinking chocolate" mix...Anyone tried Jacques Torres or Bellagio brand? Its for a friend who likes gourmet but not bitter choco flavour...so its gotta be "milk chocolate" variety and sweet but i want the cocoa flavour to stand out.
