Who Makes the Best Hot Chocolate?

Contestants in a Sweet Race

Nothing is as comforting as a warm mug of hot chocolate on a cold winter’s day. If you are like most people, chances are that you have your favourite brand.

Picking the same hot chocolate time after time can get a little redundant after a while, however, and help you switch things up a bit, we’ve rounded up the best hot chocolate manufacturers around.

Green Goddess

Green Goddess makes a vegan hot chocolate with coconut blossom and lucuma called Raw Organic Cacao Hot Choc. What makes this one of the best hot chocolates is not the taste per se, but rather the health benefits that this drink has to offer.

The Raw Organic Cacao Hot Chock is gluten-free and high in iron and magnesium. If you have an active lifestyle, this creamy hot chocolate with its rich cacao aroma can help you with muscle mass maintenance, weight management, and digestive health. Since this hot chocolate is rich in flavanol, it also protects your skin against the sun.

Fortnum & Mason

Next on our list is the Ruby Chocolate from Fortnum & Mason with its pink hue and creamy berry flavour. Ruby Chocolate is for people who prefer quality over quantity. Due to this drinkable chocolate’s rich creaminess, the instructions suggest that you use a teacup rather than a mug.

Three heaped tablespoons and a topping up with warm milk will produce a rose-coloured, creamy drink with a prominent strawberry aroma. Ruby Chocolate has the highest price tag on our list.

Cartwright & Butler

Cartwright & Butler’s Orange Drinking Chocolate is a mason-style jar full of chocolate pearls. Since the Orange Drinking Chocolate is dairy-free, you can try it with milk alternatives if you are lactose intolerant. Even with unsweetened almond milk, you can still enjoy a sweet, creamy hot chocolate.

Green & Black’s Organic

If rich and creamy isn’t your thing, take a look at Green & Black’s Organic Hot Chocolate Drink. The product consists of finely ground hot chocolate powder that is organic and dairy free. You can drink this hot chocolate with cow’s milk, almond milk, or oat milk.

Despite its luxurious taste and deep chocolate hue, the Black & Green Hot Chocolate Drink is available at a reasonable price.

Coco Chocolatier

People who prefer something a little more exotic will enjoy the lavender, lemongrass, & vanilla bean drinking chocolate from Coco Chocolatier – a white hot chocolate that consists of chocolate flakes with a perfumed aroma.

This fine hot chocolate has a relatively high price tag but comes in a reusable decorative tin.

Dure Mousses

Of Men and Mousse

Mousse is an airy, whipped dessert that brings all the richness and flavour of a dessert into a light, rich, and delicious treat. Akin to whipped cream, mousse is delicately whipped but has an even airier texture. It comes in a wide variety of flavours, the most common being chocolate, but it also can come in sweet, fruity, herby, and even savoury flavours as well. The primary binding ingredients for a mousse are eggs, cream, or even gelatin. This allows the mousse to be stiff while retaining its airy qualities.

The Historical Significance of Mousse

The word mousse is French for “foam,” and the dessert is French in origin. The evolution of flavoured mousses actually began with savoury mousse in 18th century France. Dessert mousses didn’t appear in the food repertoire until the latter half of the 19th century, and they were generally fruit mousses.

Chocolate mousse was first popularized in America in the 1930’s, which coincided with the introduction of both chocolate pudding mix and the electric mixer. This fateful meeting brought about the invention of mousse dishes in America as they are known and loved today. Beyond the chocolate mousse, other flavoured mousses began getting popular after the second World War, when French food became more popular in the United States.

Mousse represents technological advances in the kitchen. It represents the melding of cultures, and the experiment of flavours.

Dure Mousses

Dure Foods was first started by Scott Malcolm in 1978. At first, they only manufactured one product, dish soap, but as the years went on, the company grew.

Dure mousse comes in a wide variety of flavours, each one just as good as the next.
