Review: Cocoa Loco Hot Chocolate Spoon

Cocoa Loco Vegan Hot Chocolate Spoon

Fairtrade luxury hot chocolate serving in dark choc 'n' mint flavour. This is an unusual format for selling hot chocolate - a chunk of real chocolate with a wooden spoon embedded in it. This arrived with the January Vegan Tuck Box:

Cocoa Loco Hot Chocolate Spoon

This is quite a lump of chocolate for a single serving, so we used a large mug. You stir the chocolate into hot milk - we used two-thirds rice milk to one-third soya milk.

Dissolving the chocolate takes at least a couple of minutes of stirring. This is billed as 'dark' chocolate and it certainly turned out darker than a regular mix would. It wasn't bitter at all though, as there is enough sweetness to counter that - and a whole mug of milk to offset the darkness. The mint is delicate and makes for a delicious drink.

This is something of a novelty product - great as a gift maybe. It not very convenient to stir for two minutes, and the economics of a single serve product means you won't keep these by the cupboard full.

It's enjoyable though, attractive, delicious and fair trade too, so what's not to like?

The Good: Great presentation, delicious hot chocolate
The Not-so-good: Slow to dissolve and relatively expensive
