YYC Hot Chocolate Closing Remarks

Overall this month was a successful YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, we tried 25 different hot chocolates from 20 different locations spending roughly $300 with the average hot chocolate costing six dollars.

We tried a few more this year than we did last year. This year we really wanted to visit the more creative hot chocolates and avoid the simplistic hot chocolates.

I asked my daughter and my wife to rate their top five hot chocolates, each made their own list and wrote them down so I could type them.

My daughter’s list:

  1. Rosso – Orange Blossom Hot Chocolate
  2. Societe – Bumblebee
  3. Blush – Pistachio Orange Blossom Bliss
  4. Sucre – Orange Florentine Cocoa
  5. Bubblemania – Black Sesame Hot Chocolate

My wife’s list:

  1. Bridgeland – Be Still, My Beet(ing) Heart
  2. Rosso – Orange Blossom Hot Chocolate
  3. Societe – Bumblebee
  4. Bubblemania – Black Sesame Hot Chocolate
  5. Blush – Pistachio Orange Blossom Bliss

One thing both my wife and my daughter could agree on was Boogies Frozen Hot Chocolate was absolutely in a category all on its own. It was the only cold hot chocolate we had and it was amazing. We hope they keep it on the menu.

We were very pleased that we were a part of this years YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, and we are so happy that we were able to visit as many locations as we could.

Hope you all had a very chocolatey February.
