Fleet River Hot Chocolate Festival Winner

Vanilla bean hot chocolate
We started with vanilla…

The Hot Chocolate festival at Fleet River Bakery has reached its conclusion today.

Without further ado….the winner is HONEYCRUNCH!

Of course, I had to sample it, and I wasn’t overly impressed. It was a little too milky, and the “crunch” was sparsely sprinkled on top.

My vote went to CINNAMON, which was divinely rich and delicious. (Fleet River – please make this one again, please?!)

I also tried the ROSE hot chocolate.

It intrigued me because rose is not the kind of flavour I would associate with chocolate, or indeed particularly want to try with chocolate.

After my first sip, my tongue was seeing stars from confusion. Yes, there was a rose flavour – just like you get in Turkish delight – but then the flavour of chocolate took over. For each sip, this strange transition from rose to chocolate took place. This was not rose-chocolate, but rose and chocolate.

*Muttering* “Rose and chocolate, rose and chocolate….What is going on?!”

My quest for the best hot chocolate in London continues and I have found some fantastic places for you! Look out for more posts soon!

  1. I actually went to back with miriam and huda to try out another flavor after the beer flavor dilemma lol! And guess what, they had ginger! Argh me no likey ginger so I just opted for their quiche, which was delicious and surprisingly not expensive 😀

    1. Oh no! Did you know they cancelled “love potion” chilli and cherry? I was so gutted! 😥 They replaced it with hazelnut and banana *eugh*

      I’m not a ginger fan either, but their quiche looks so amazing. For future reference, they do student discount if you didn’t know already. I lost out on that way too many times 😛
