Drinkable Chocolate

Vosges Haut Chocolate

With the temperature raising you may be looking to trade your hot chocolate for ice cream, but don’t put away those mugs just yet. 101 cookbooks put together a comprehensive list of drinking chocolate that will make you want to turn up the air conditioner and personally test each delicious drink listed. Making your way through the list could be costly to your wallet and waistline, but will be a heart warming experience none the less. If looking to try the “outrageously expensive” Vosges Haut Chocolate, the white cocoa and dark cocoa varieties are currently on sale from W Hotels. Regularly $20-$25, W Hotels is offering them for $14.99 each. For a nice crunchy cookie to compliment your drink, Chocolate Florentine Cookie from Paris Pastry are also on sale ($9.99, regularly $18.)

Darn it. I just ordered the white chocolate from Vosges on Friday. I have wanted to try it for so long and kept putting it off because of the price and I finally gave in! Its costing me $30 with shipping. Now you tell me – $14.99. phoowey. Oh well. Hopefully its good. I’ll try to report back.

Oh no! I’m sorry I didn’t get this up sooner :) Let us know if it’s even worth the $14.99!

Hi,
Just want to say I love your site. I just ate a homemade marshmallow and was thinking how nice it would be to have some hot chocolate to go with it and low and behold I come to your site…
You’ve totally turned me on to reading blogs. Thanks!
Pam

Ok. I just made the Bianca cocoa and all it reminds me of is hot Trix cereal. Trix. Yes. Odd. Likeable in a nostalgic (for me) kind of way but not something I would consider gourmet, couture, worth $25, etc. Also not something I would crave – I don’t think. I guess we’ll see. Also, in my mug it is creating a yellow film on the top as it cools. Very unappealing. Perhaps I did something wrong? But I don’t think so. Final words: if you can get this for free or a glass of it for a couple dollars, its different and worth a try. I wouldn’t buy the whole box though unless you really love Trix.

Hi Becky — Thanks for reporting back. How disappointing. I always thought the best part of Trix milk was the little color specs floating around — I imagine Vosges doesn’t have that :)

Hi Pam — Thanks for your nice note! It looks like the Vosges HC isn’t recommended. Did you ever find a good one to go with your marshmallow?

Pam says on April 23rd, 2005 at 4:36 pm:

No I haven’t looked, but I’m wondering how it would be w/warmed milk….I think I’ll try it tonite.

maybe the vosges chocolate drinks are just better when you get them in the shop. i had the bianca and the aztec yesterday and they were fabulous. the bianca was like spring in a cup!
