What I didn't realise, until recently, was that the drinking chocolate you can buy in paper bags and take home with you, or give away as a perfect gift for a chocoholic, was the exact same as they serve in the café - how perfect is that?! You can actually have the heavenly Chocolate Factory drinking experience in your own living room, hooray! Ah, to indulge in a cup when you want to treat yourself to something special, bliss... And as in the café you can chose dark, milk/light or white chocolate.
What was far from bliss was the last bag of cocoa I bought, I had so looked forward to a cup of hot cocoa one evening and opened up that new bag. I thought it smelled a bit weird when I whipped the whole thing together, then it tasted rather foul, perhaps it was the milk? Turned out it was the content of the bag with cocoa that was the problem, for some odd reason sort of rancid in taste. Disappointed snarl.
Today I finally managed to pop by to exchange that bag for a new one. A new one, I might add, I hope is up to its usual quality... And as an extra balm into that chocolate wound I got a little bag of their lovely, pricey creams. The perfect touch to get a disgruntled customer to return. Me like!
If you feel like having a chocolaty pastry of some sort instead of hot cocoa, I think they serve a both pretty as well as tasty latte too. And this new concoction of a banana-chocolate mousse with some sort of fruit compote and crispy crumbs of some kind was just divine. With a heavensent tasty physalis on top.
