But since I found this at Williams Sonoma, I'm hooked. This makes fabulous hot cocoa. For the last week, I've had a cup EVERY NIGHT (I follow the directions, mixing the cocoa in the cup, so many TBSP per 8 oz, etc). And it's just absolutely wonderful. Doesn't have the bitterness some have. Beautiful aroma and flavor. I need to get like a dozen cannisters of this. :)
On the plus side, no alkalis. So, you get the heart healthy benefits. (If you're using the Dutch Process or alkalinized cocoas, your cocoa just isn't gonna do it health-wise for you, sorry.)
Also on the plus side, no sugar. You sweeten this yourself. So, for the natural crowd who like stevia, go for it. For those like me who use Splenda, it tastes great with it. Or, if you like old-fashioned sucrose, knock yourself out. The benefit is you sweeten it to YOUR taste and not the manufacturer's (which I always find make hot chocolate mixes too, too, too sweet.)
I wish amazon as a seller stocked this. iGourmet has outrageous--no, really, totally outrageous--shipping prices. It's like 12 bucks for a small cannister of cocoa that doesn't weigh that much. The price of the cocoa is in keeping, I think, with the quality. But the shipping is, as another reviewer stated, a rip-off. I won't buy from this seller as long as the shipping is this inflated. Another amazon seller has shipping at 8 bucks. Still high, I think, but more reasonable.
So, if you can find it locally or amazon ever decides to stock it and send it with super saver or PRIME, get it that way. Or find someone who doesn't gouge with shipping.
