And so I had the chance to review 5 Sparrows Hot Chocolate, and I had so much fun drinking this stuff. What I love most about this brand is the fact that it was started by two people who've worked as baristas and their love of coffee just evolved (my shout out to baristas - I tend to bend their ear way too much when I buy coffee and they are always so patient and nice). And this company was created out of their vision and I was so proud to take part in tasting this vision of theirs.
In fact, here's a photo of me actually drinking my hot chocolate:
Hey, don't judge the photography job, it was with my cell phone camera and mind you, I was attempting to take this photo with one hand.
I had the opportunity to try a sample of 5 Sparrow's White Hot Chocolate, Regular Hot Chocolate, and Spiced Chai. The great part about these three yummy mixes are sugar free and gluten free (they are sweetened with Stevia and Xyiltol (read more here).
My Chai Tea
If you are looking for a tasty addition to Christmas morning (or evening), go to 5SparrowsBrand.com to purchase your mixes! By the way, all three of these mixes are sugar free. How awesome is that?
Disclaimer: I received a sample of each mix of hot chocolate and chai in exchange for my honest review.
So, not only do I like to eat chocolate, I love to drink it too.
I absolutely love the little samples I received - for my Chai Tea, I heated up Vanilla Soy Milk and added in a couple of tablespoons of the mix. It tasted pretty good! I'll be honest, though, I'm not usually a fan of Chai Tea, but I did enjoy what I made, and that says a lot, I think.
But, most of all, my favorite of everything I received was the White Hot Chocolate. I never made anything like that before and I even invented my own little recipe using this amazingly tasty hot chocolate mix.
I like to call it...My Black and White Hot Chocolate.
Black & White Hot Chocolate
8 Ounce Coffee Cup
Already Made Hot Coffee
Add in enough hot chocolate so that about 1 inch of the coffee cop is filled.
Add milk to about 3/4ths of the way into the cup.
Heat in the microwave for 1 minute.
Fill the rest with coffee.
This makes the best hot chocolate (with the added coffee, especially).
If you aren't a coffee fan, try this mix also with Vanilla Soy Milk or Vanilla Almond Milk instead (just fill the cup the whole way with milk instead of leaving room for coffee).
