Happy Hot Chocolate Month!

Guys, guys: IT IS FEBRUARY!

Maybe you are not excited about this fact. Maybe you think that means it's cold, and Christmas is so long over, and summer is so far away, and the only things to look forward to are President's Day Weekend and knocking back a bottle of gin on Valentine's Day.

If that is what you think, then you obviously don't know the most important thing about February: IT IS THE ANNUAL HOT CHOCOLATE FESTIVAL AT CITY BAKERY!

You know how we feel about the normal hot chocolate at City Bakery. You know it's included in our Best of the Best list (located on the right-hand collumn of this blog, always!). You know we listed it in our Best Chocolate of 2012 round-up.

What you may not know is that every day for the month of February, City Bakery offers a different flavor of hot chocolate in addition to their normal, plain, amazing one.

Here's this year's line-up:

Don't be surprised if we report back as the month goes on and we try different flavors. Personally I am most excited for ginger and darkest dark. What about you?

BOTTOM LINE; If you think February is a drag, go to City Bakery, and think again.


  1. I personally am most intrigued by the ones that make no sense (ie, will be a surprise). Sunken Treasure? Is there going to be REAL GOLD in that hot chocolate? What about "Ode to the Polar Bear?" Is it going to be WHITE chocolate? Is that too literal? Who the eff knows? I hope that Happy Hot Chocolate is heavily spiked with Baileys.

    1. I have never tried any of those flavors for exactly that reason. I like to know what I'm getting in to.

    2. That is funny - I mean, it's not like they have people working there who take your order and might be willing to TELL you what is in there.

  2. Obviously I didn't have the guts to tackle "Moulin Rouge" or "Love Potion" but I assume both contain aphrodisiacs.
