Loren bought me Dagoba hot chocolate, a fancy (borderline pretentious) drink mix that is Fair Trade Certified and that declares "Dagoba is dedicated to The Art of Chocolate Alchemy: transforming exceptional cacao into edible gold." All right, it's a bit over the top, but I'm fine with it.
The directions, however, enter the realm of the absurd: "We recommend slowly heating one cup of milk or milk alternative on the stove top while stirring continually until hot. When vapors rise, the milk will be at its most receptive to accept chocolate into its embrace."
Hey, I think drinking hot chocolate is sensual as much as the next guy, but I don't like the image of my chocolate powder making sweet love to my milk and leaving stray love juices in my drink.
Anyway, Dagoba hot chocolate is very good and very chocolatey, and I have decided that the company should send me free products so I can review them here while making fun of the text on their packaging. How about it, Dagoba?!
(I swear, I think the only reason Loren bought me this in the first place is because the name of the product reminds him of Dagobah, that Star Wars planet. Dork.)
