Neither of the hot chocolates this week rocked my world. Actually, the best one recently was from City Bakery's Hot Chocolate Festival where I had the Banana Peel Hot Chocolate. So rich and decadent!
Ok, back to Max Brenner and La Colombe. Max Brenner's Milk Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows ($5.95) beat out the watery Le Colombe Hot Chocolate ($2.75), which comes unsweetened. Neither were exceptional with the Max Brenner's too sweet, and Le Colombe's not at all thick nor rich. Max Brenner won out because just because I prefer thicker hot chocolates. I should have passed on the mini marshmallows, which were the kind you find in the supermarket, and it made it overly sweet. Next time I go, I'll try the dark chocolate version. Oh, the "hug mug" they serve the beverage in, is very cute.
