Hits the spot

This drink really hits the spot on a damp day, on cold days also.

- Evonne Robertson from FRASER, MI


At first I didn't think we would like the spice along with the chocolate but we love chocolate and we love spice so we tried it. Loved it!!!! Even though we don't have the weather to make us want to curl up with a hot drink(95 yesterday) it is wonderful. I am sending it to all of my "cold weather" friends & realtives to try.
