February 3rd—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
More than 2,000 years ago, historical evidence tells us that Mayans enjoyed cold beverages made from chocolate; and as explorers from various cultures ventured to the New World, chocolate drinks made their way back to the "Old World", where they evolved, became a bit sweeter, and were eventually served hot. With Trader Joe's Organic Instant Hot Cocoa Mix we've managed to take chocolate drinks "out of this world".
Our Mix is made exclusively for Trader Joe's using cocoa from premium beans, organically grown in Ghana, Indonesia, Venezuela and Brazil. It's richer in flavor and texture than most instant mixes - we think it's the generous amount of organic milk powder in the mix that gives the hot cocoa its velvety texture and opulent flavor. You can combine with either milk or water, depending on how rich you like your cocoa - it’s surprisingly full-flavored with water, and milk will deliver even more voluptuous results. A dollop of whipped cream, or whatever toppings bring you the most joy, will be right at home atop a steaming mug of our Hot Cocoa.
We're selling each 10 ounce box of 10 packets of Trader Joe's Organic Instant Hot Cocoa Mix for $3.29, every day (during the winter season).
