Hot Chocolate Festival: 70% Dark versus Cardamom

70% Dark Hot Chocolate

You might remember that I enjoyed a fantastic vanilla bean hot chocolate…because Fleet River Bakery is running a Hot Chocolate Festival!  There are different exciting flavours every day, and you can vote for your favourite.

I kindly sampled the 70% Dark hot chocolate and the Cardamom hot chocolate so you didn’t have to…

70% Dark Hot Chocolate – 2/5

Disappointing. I was expecting dark, thick, bitter. A headrush of cocoa. But it was milky and way too sweet.

Cardamom Hot Chocolate 3.5/5

Cardamom goes so well with chocolate and Fleet River got the flavour balance just perfect. However, I added half a sachet of sugar as it needed just a tad of sweetening (ironic eh?). Also, I think they could have tried to filter out the cardamom seeds. They gave a discordant ending to a delicious drink…
