A mild December evening it is as I walk north to the end of Water Street reach the end of the road; this is where I meet the end of my hot chocolate travels. So I find myself in a parking lot in front of the Scugog Memorial Public Library. I enter and despite the wafting smells coming from my right of the newly opened Gingerbread Baker’s Village, I make a hard left, straight for the Community Living Café outlet on the opposite side of the main room.
The attendant reaches for a carnation hot chocolate package right after I ask for my hot chocolate.
“Do you want milk or cream?” she asks as she’s adding the hot water. I say yes to milk and she asks me “How many?” I think for a moment and reply two. So she gives me two milks and I pay my meager dollar twenty-five, stir my milks in and snap a lid on my to-go cup now I wonder over to a table to take the first sip.
The flavour… the overall flavour was weakened by the steamy heat, so I recommend letting it cool a minute before taking the first sip. If you like a frothy cup of carnation hot chocolate then you will love this.
Note: While waiting for my hot chocolate I noticed that there are complimentary spices directly next to the lids and stir sticks, so you can spice up your beverage with a little pumpkin spice, cinnamon, or nutmeg.
