Just look at this packaging, and you’ll understand why I bought this hot chocolate in the middle of the June. I just needed to wait until the weather turned chilly to try a mug-full. The tin is so beautiful, so I guessed that the contents had to be good, and I was correct.
Instead of being a powder, the cocoa was tiny nibs of mint chocolate that melted into the warm milk for a lovely cup of decadence. It’s a grown-up, dark chocolate, not too sweet.
I was sure that this was a French product, but upon closer inspection, I discovered that it hails from my neighbor to the North, Canada. (I am very fond of all things Canadian.)
The company is called Wildly Delicious Petite Maison, and if this cocoa is any indication of the quality of their products, their name is totally accurate. Check them out here. The store finder on their web site says that the closest place to buy their yummies is in the city 1 1/2 hours from my house. You can bet that the next time I’m in that area, I will be visiting that store.
