|Starbucks Chantico – Drinking Chocolate
Overall Rating: 4.5
Experience Date:Feb 05, 2005
Unhealthy, a little sweet, pricey
I sampled some of this “drinking chocolate” this weekend. It was quite good. Reminds me of drinking a melted hershey bar. But I haven’t done that. It just reminds me of it. Actually, reminds me of a Turkish coffee/tea bar in Chapel Hill on that street all the parties are on. I had some hot chocolate there that was super-concentrated and really good. That was several years ago and I’ve wished for something similar since. Starbucks has, once again, given me a drink that I thoroughly enjoy. It is really rich and really small. I didn’t really want any more after my 6 oz. serving. The downside: 390 calories, 21 grams of fat and 50 carbs! It’s tough to pack that much of a punch in 6 ounces.
