Good evening and welcome back! I have been waiting weeks for just the right time to try an experiment and this evening was perfect. Who remembers Chantico drinking chocolate that Starbucks had a couple of years ago?! I was SO sad to see it go!! It reminded me of a drinking chocolate some friends from Spain brought that I’d fallen in love with. I have never come so close to duplicating that taste of practically drinking a chocolate bar until Chantico. Sigh.
A few weeks ago, in the blazing heat, my aunt was visiting and treated us to ice cream at Kilwins over by the beach. While browsing the shop, I found a bag of Kilwins Shredded Peruvian Chocolate for Drinking. I was ecstatic!! I was even more thrilled when my Aunt surprised me with a bag as a gift!! I’ve been waiting until it cooled down enough to try it and see if it really was similar to that wonderful drinking chocolate I remembered, and…. woo-hoo!!! If you’re a chocolate lover, especially a dark chocolate lover, I highly recommend you give it a try. I DID add extra sugar to cut the bitterness, but it’s still AMAZING!!
I’ve got to hurry and finish this post so I can get back to my chocolate.
Nope… I had to finish my chocolate first. Now I’m back to finish the post. Priorities!! : )
I think this card was a self portrait of me just a couple of seconds ago. lol!
