Q: Why so much added sugar?

submitted by Smharding - 3 months ago
  • A: Hey there! Great question. We don't use any alternatives to sugar largely because of our deep connection to our farmer partners at Manduvira sugar cooperative. They do such great work. Look them up! There's currently no equivalent source for fair trade, organic, and small scale farmer run sugar alternatives (that we've found). If you would like more control over your sugar content, we recommend using our baking cocoa and your sweetener of choice to make your hot cocoa.

Q: Can you mix with water only?

submitted by Fruitville - 1 year ago
  • A: Equal Exchange organic dark hot chocolate stands apart from our other organic cocoa mixes due to the inclusion of organic dark chocolate flakes in the mix, which add an extra dimension of chocolatey goodness. Unlike our traditional organic hot cocoa that includes organic dried milk powder, our organic dark hot chocolate is blended without any milk powders. To achieve a traditional hot cocoa creamy mouthfeel, we suggest mixing our organic dark hot chocolate with whatever hot milk or milk alternative of your choice. One could mix our organic dark hot chocolate with just hot water, however, the mouthfeel may not feel as creamy and decadent as a traditional hot cocoa.

Q: How much caffeine does 1 serving contain?

submitted by Kristen - 1 year ago
  • A: Hey there, While we don't test our hot chocolates for caffeine content, we do know that the caffeine content of hot cocoa typically ranges from 2 to 20 milligrams per cup. For perspective, an 8oz cup of coffee (brewed using the drip method) contains 60 to 180 milligrams of caffeine.

submitted by Arlene - 3 years ago

This actually tastes like dirt mixed with poop. I am shocked at all the race reviews. I will be trying to return this somehow. I feel so duped.

Hello! I apologize that you didn't like our Dark Hot Cocoa. It is actually Fair Trade cocoa mixed with sugar and not dirt or poop. I hope you are able to exchange it for something that you like better! Much appreciated! - Equal Exchange.

I do not enjoy super sweet things. This hot chocolate tastes perfect! I never thought I would be a regular hot chocolate drinker but this product definitely made me one! Tin says to add 4 Tbsp per 8 oz of hot milk. I do 2 Tbsp per 12 oz and it's still very delicious! Thanks Target for carrying this awesome hot chocolate that is totally a hug in a mug!

This is the most absolutely delicious hot chocolate I have EVER HAD! And I’ve had them all. It is so rich and has a real dark chocolate flavor that is so delicious! It is worth the price for sure and honesty beats Starbucks hot chocolate, which used to be my favorite until I found this one! Also adding whipped cream and dark chocolate syrup makes it even more delicious:)

Great intense chocolate flavor. Mixes well. Love that it is dairy free. Our go to family recipe is some almond milk, child labor-free chocolate chips (ie NOT Hershey's or Nestle), vanilla extract and some of this mix warmed in a pot. It makes the most decadent hot chocolate!

My husband loved this. This is also really convenient to make. Normally I’d have to make a double boiler and melt down a chocolate bar to make a cup of hot chocolate since I cannot stand the taste of cheap hot cocoa mix. So even though this isn’t cheap, it’s cost effective compared to a bar of chocolate per cup. I used a cup of grass fed milk, 2 spoons of the hot cocoa mix and to make it even more decadent.. I added 2 spoons of dark chocolate ice cream since he likes it sweet. I’m not a fan of hot chocolate but it was delicious…

The best hot cocoa. I love that I can mix it in with dairy free milk instead. I also love that it doesn’t have that sugary taste or texture that normal hot chocolate does. I only use about 2 tablespoons and that’s plenty!
