It is cold!
After a milder than normal December the cold had slammed into Indiana where The Chocolate Cult is headquartered and thus it was perfect time to try out this organic hot cocoa mix from Equal Exchange. This is the last of the huge sample of products this company sent us in January 2014 but don't worry, the cocoa mix is still good until May this year! This is just one of their cocoa mixes, we used their spicy version last year in baking and drinking, but for this mix we just tested it repeatedly over a cold week as a hot drink. Heads up: This does contain dry milk powder if that is an allergy concern for you. So without further ado, here is our results for the Equal Exchange Fair Trade Organic Hot Cocoa Mix.
Equal Exchange has a wonderful social agenda that they promote and encourage with their chocolate, coffee, and tea sales. If fair trade, organic, sustainable agriculture matter to you, you need to check them out. If it is cold where you are or it will get cold at some point in the next year to year and a half (the "best by" lifespan of the canister I got), then you need to buy this Organic Hot Cocoa Mix. You'll be doing the world a favor by promoting good practices and be doing your family (and you) a favor with delicious hot cocoa.
