Review: Max Brenner's Chocolat blended with Orange Peel Oil
Max Brenner's Chocolat with Orange Peel Oil
The drink is smooth and blends the orange flavor very well with the cacao. Maybe too well. The orange flavor from the orange peel oil almost overpowers the taste of the cacao, and makes it hard to discern the characteristics of the cacao itself. It's a good drink, especially if you like the orange and chocolate combination in the first place. However, as a hot chocolate, it falls short.
Recipe used: 2 1/2 tablespoons of the mix with a glass of milk. I followed some of the directions that came with the mix: I dissolved the mix in a little bit of hot water and then added the milk and heated it up. I also added about 3/4 teaspoon sugar (though this isn't necessary).
