When one of my favorite green blogs dedicates an article to hot chocolate, I have to sit up and pay attention. In this case, though, it seems that the “eco” options for cocoa mixes they tried were either yucky or expensive or both.
Makes me just wonder…why? It’s so easy to make your own custom hot chocolate mix. And you can pick your own cocoa (fair trade and organic baking cocoa from Whole Foods is what I tend to gravitate toward) and sugar, and if you want to go the “just add water” route you can also decide where you want to get your powdered milk from…you can add cinnamon, or instant coffee, you can increase the cocoa or decrease the sugar or whatever the heck you want.
I totally don’t get why people would spend an arm and a leg for something that’s so easy to make yourself…
