The box description reads, "We made this mix as creamy and rich as...a delicious cup of organic hot cocoa should really be. Flavor-wise, there's nothing water-y about it, but if you like your cup of hot cocoa even richer, make it with milk. Take it to the next level by topping your cocoa with whipped cream, marshmallows or a peppermint stick."

Trader Joe's Organic Hot Cocoa Mix Review

She says (sister B, age 8): This organic hot chocolate was filled with rich flavors. We first tried it without any cashew milk, and it contained the regular taste of dark chocolate. For me, the chocolate tasted too rich, but, like it informed on the package, the taste was not watery. It has a good pricing of $3.99 ($4.00) for ten packets, though. When combined with cashew milk, the chocolate wasn't quite as rich, but there was less taste of chocolate all together. Overall, this is a nice, refreshing drink on cold or snowy days if you just want to relax and drink a dark, warm hot chocolate!

Overall rating: 3 of 5 stars

He says (brother N, age 11): This hot chocolate is easy to make, has a great price, and is a great treat. The chocolate in the cup is very rich, which is good for a cold winter day (or any kind of day while relaxing inside). The instructions are manageable (dump the mixture in a cup and pour hot water over it). One of the things that surprised me the most about this mixture was that each packet costs around 50 cents! This is good for an organic treat and much less expensive than ordering a hot cocoa at Starbucks. This drink is best served without milk because I thought that the cashew milk adulterated the chocolate and subdued the snack's best qualities.

Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

Would they buy this again?

(B): It depends on the occasion. I would if it was a cold day, and I didn't want to have to make a difficult or complicated recipe. Flavorwise, I'd probably spend my time on a drink that tastes a little less rich and more flavorful. 

(N): I would definitely buy these to add to my supply of great snack drinks. I would recommend this brand to create a homemade delicacy such as hot cocoa.
