Nuts about Hot Chocolate
Earlier this year we asked for your hot chocolate flavour suggestions, then we narrowed the options to a final nine and asked for your votes. The nine flavours were: Spiced Orange, Hazelnut, Almond, Rum and Raisin, Toffee Apple, Macadamia White Hot Chocolate, Amaretto. Maple Syrup and Irish Cream.
Lots of you voted and the two most popular flavours were Amaretto and Hazelnut. These two flavours went into recipe development and after much tasting and refining by our Head Buyer, the recipes were finalised with delicious Amaretto Milk Hot Chocolate and Hazelnut White Hot Chocolate.
