Why Do People Love Hot Chocolate?
Tasty, warming, comforting and indulgent are
among the words that should apply to every cup of hot chocolate you sell. Few beverages are as
ingrained in our collective childhood memories as hot cocoa, explaining why so
many people continue to enjoy it as adults. Part of what makes this drink so
appealing are flavour possibilities that can range from subtle to luxurious.
Chocolate releases endorphins in the brain that produce feelings of calmness and relaxation. Chocolate also has many vitamins, minerals and chemical compounds that can provide an energy boost.
What Are the Options When It Comes to Making the Best Hot Chocolate?
hot chocolate for your customers is likely to be an experience they
can't get at home.
The percentage of cocoa bean content has an effect on
the taste, quality and mouthfeel, with lower cocoa percentages requiring a
higher amount of sugar in its place. Luxury hot chocolate is appealing because of its rich, unique
flavour and texture. Artisanal hot chocolate such as Hasslacher’s, starts as
100% cocoa and can be mixed to your preferred sweetness level using panela
sugar. This suits the growing taste for
low sweetness, high cocoa hot chocolate.
As far as the level of fun you can serve up in a mug for your customers, possibilities include using almond milk for a lighter flavour, adding caramel syrup for a richer flavour, or orange syrup and cream for an indulgent treat. Other than marshmallows, toppings worth exploring include chocolate sprinkles, chocolate crispies and salted caramel fudge pieces – all available from our store.
