Hot Chocolate Festival

I tried to think of some kind of pithy title, but then I realised – who needs a pithy title when HOT CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL says it all?!

Fleet River Bakery, tucked just behind the LSE campus, is making a different hot chocolate every day, from November 5th to November 30th.

I’m not the greatest at maths, but I calculate a whopping  26 hot chocolates to be sampled.

Given I am on a quest to find the best hot chocolate in London, this was a chocolatey challenge I couldn’t refuse. Sadly my budget doesn’t quite allow me to catch ’em try them all. But I’ll do my best for your sake. I’m a very altruistic person after all.

Check out this “Vanilla Bean” hot chocolate served yesterday:

It was creamy without being too thick. It had a hint of a vanilla without being too sweet. In fact, it just hit the spot.

It was so good that it almost made me feel better about  the extortionately priced parma ham, leek and cheese frittata I ordered to go with it. All very tasty and very filling, but £7.20. Really?! Still, if you have the money, Fleet River is a lovely lunch place.
