Dagoba in DC

One of my favorite natural food stores, Roots, has just started selling the Dagoba Hot Chocolate mix ($5.59 a canister). As if that wasn't good enough, I found that they have also started carrying Green & Black's Organic Hot Chocolate Drink mix as well as Lake Champlain Organic Hot Chocolate mix. Of course, on the downside, I now have 4 more boxes of hot chocolate to consume. That....I can probably live with.


Here is some info on an upcoming chocolate event in Memphis. It's a pretty amazing lineup of presenters, including Frederick Schilling of Dagoba, whom I see mentioned in a previous post. Also many of the people featured in Mort Rosenblum's book Chocolate: A Bittersweet Saga of Dark and Light will be sampling and speaking.
