The recipe on the Hershey's Cocoa container calls for more cocoa and, I think, sugar too but I find this suits us....

I have not found a keurig cocoa pod yet that was drinkable to me. I'll stick with coffee there. The Folgers mocha pod is very good though.

Have you tried Cadbury's ? https://www.cadbury.co.uk/the-story

This is, of course, proving that 'the mad woman in charge' hasn't completely screwed it all up. She's managed to mangle our creme eggs.

To be honest, I've never seen Cadbury hot chocolate over here, let alone in a pod.

I understand that you CAN get it in the 'States, but you'll have to dig hard.
On the other hand, there may be a
UK firm who could supply it for you.

The Cadbury situation in the US has been a sore point for those of us who love chocolate for decades. One of the high points of my first visit to the UK was a tour of the Cadbury factory with all the freebies they give to the tourists. That was back in the day of The Man In Black ads. Classics, every one of them.

Mr. Vanilla Straight Guy--Safe_Bet

Don’t know if I ever told you, but you were the first person I “met” on Lit. You invited me into Molly’s thread and made me feel at home. I really appreciated that. You also prolly know more about the “doings” of our family than just about anybody else on Lit. That’s cuz you care and are appreciated for being you.--posthumous message from Safe_Bet. And I still care and I still love her. Rest in the Light, Suzy.

I don't really care for Cadbury either way, but these:

...are pretty much crack for me.

That, or any of the Ritter Sport bars.

And I am indulging in hot chocolate now because of this thread. Thanks all!

Finishing up a cuppa hot chocolate myself. I've had a bad sinus headache most of the afternoon. Not even a steaming shower has helped much.

Maybe a little sleep will help.

I'm a sucker for chocolate-covered marzipan. Luckily, it's not that common. Common enough, though...

My more usual weakness are orange-filled Lindt bars. The pistachio ones too. I pretty much have to avoid them these days. I've been known to eat an entire bar while walking through the grocery store, handing just the empty wrapper to the cashier.

My two current favorites are dark chocolate Lindt bars - Cherry Tango and Orange with slivered almonds

Have you considered using one of these ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/QUALITY-ST...EAAOSwCGVX9gRg

Works for me, especially when a little salt or menthol is added.

Chocc & Cherry; a devastating combination.

You guys are talking way too dirty for me this morning. Chocolate Cherry, indeed.

The sleep helped the headache but now I'm awake at an ungodly hour.

Ah well, I'll make fresh coffee.

Oh man, the Lindt Mozarts?!
A hazelnut cream center, wrapped in pistachio marzipan, and then covered in chocolate. *drools*

At least with the Mozarts, they're in the bulk tables, so you can pick up only a few pieces instead of buying a nice big bag of them.

Oooohhhh, coffee please. Got up far too early and did some writing before breakfast. Lots of editing and tweaking last nite.

Chocolates? After my vacation in Australia and New Zealand back in March 2016, I am convinced New Zealand Cadbury chocolate is the best in the world. I bought a box back with me. And they have the most amazingly delicious cookies. And their icecream is to die for.

Now you do have me drooling! And thinking of hazelnut and pistachio gelato...

Ah well, tea first. Then coffee. The more coffee.

Any chance of them with caramel centres ?
Hazelnuts do no no favours.
Anyone need some cold rain ? We go plenty. . . .

And now - coffee.

Coffee it is.

Being up early didn't work out so well, so I went back to bed.

High 70's today so it's back to the yard. I'm going to have all my Spring work done in January. Butt, butt, butt.....

I watch my blood sugar too closely for this chocolate conversation. 62% Cacao bars are the limit of my consumption these days, and not very many of those. Now, come the day when dark chocolate is available made from coconut sugar . . .

Send your rain to southern California, they always need rain. The northern part of the state is drowning, but the south needs to raise the water levels after so many years of drought.

Might as well package it up properly. Ours is currently falling as snow.

Snow would be better for SoCal. Too much rain and the mountains melt.

I spent most of the afternoon going through all my comments. There were smiles, there were sighs at people long gone from Lit, There were a few surprise comment from people I never expected to comment, and then there were deletes for a whole bunch of Annony crap. That stuff is harder to scrap off than black gumbo.

Ok, coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

I'm doing diet DP.

LOL, they do have a habit of melting, don't they.

They actually got some good snowfall in December in the LA and SD area mountains. Not anywhere near what they need, but it sure made for a beautiful sight. Of course it didn't last long in San Diego. But the LA mountains were looking good from a distance. Still, they need a ton of snow and rain to make drinking water for all those people.
