I love cocoa. Who doesn't? I love all different kinds... plain, vanilla, peppermint... you name it I love it. Last year, I received some Peppermint Cocoa from Starbucks from my Secret Santa at work. I was really excited and figured this would go great with a nice cold day. It says instant so I figured that I could keep it at work and drink it instead of coffee or tea... just a little treat once in a while.
The cocoa came in a very pretty red and white tin box with a metal label on the front that says "Starbucks Peppermint Cocoa". I love the box and can use it for ust about anything. This was indeed a perfect gift for me.
When I open the cocoa it smell really good. In fact, it made my mouth water. The directions call to add 3 level tbsp to a 6 FL OZ mug. Now, I am not sure if I added too much but the powder diid not disolve... EVER. I was drinking clumpy cocoa. It tasted really good but I dont like to drink powdery coca. The second time I tried it, I added less mix and it seemed to disolve better... so I thought. When I was finished, there was a bunch of mix at the bottom of my cup.
I still have the package and it is halp full, but I won't use it again. I liked the taste of it but I don't like how it doesn't disolve. Starbucks may make excellent coffee, but their cocoa isn't the best.
