    Default Starbucks Hot Cocoa!

    Anyone tried it? They sell it in stores now.

    I've had the salted caramel one. It isn't bad. Personally, I prefer to add a little more milk to it than what the packaging recommends, though.

    I'm gonna try making it with vanilla almond milk in a bit. I got the marshmallow and the salted caramel.

    Oooh, marshmallow sounds good. I require an update on the almond milk, please as I prefer that to drinking regular milk, but have been too nervous to try it with something like hot chocolate.

    I always make hot chocolate with vanilla almond milk. I'm beginning to think Lex has my house bugged...

    Lex is certainly crafty enough with the technology bit, but from what little I know, I think he's too much of a gentleman to do so!

    Or...maybe...and I'm not saying that I can prove such things are true...but maybe...just maybe...it's the universe giving us just one more special connection to strengthen our ties to one another...or just random coincidence...probably.

    I've tried the regular chocolate and the marshmellow one. Both are very good.

    Starbucks hot cocoa doesn't do much for me. I much prefer Nestle!

    I order the Starbuck's hot cocoa with SOY milk instead of regular milk. As much as I love cow's milk, it doesn't love me. Plus the soy is 'lighter'.

    Yeah and my eldest brother constantly asks me, how do you get milk from a soy bean????? soy beans don't have an "udder".

    a) cleaned up for the general population and b) bro may have 'borrowed' this from a someone else.

    Oh, Lex. OT day(s) will end, and it'll be back to real life, and you'll forget all about me...

    You'll eat burgers and drink vanilla almond hot chocolate, whilst your GPS navigates you to some exotic locale for you to play with your camera. When you get back home, you'll queue up some old Knight Rider or Star Trek episodes and snuggle on the couch.

    The salted caramel was my absolute favorite in the cafes... it's been a long time since I ordered it but one winter it was off their menu and i nearly wept.

    I do love the SC but it has to be made just right. I had some that were just really bitter and left me wanting a refund.

    I may be easy, but I'm not cheap. Or is that I may be cheap but I'm not easy? Damn, I've been out of the game too long!
