Well it seldom gets cold enough in Alabama for me to really enjoy hot chocolate in this stage of my life. I have to say that my internal heater is helping me to get through this cold spell.:) I had this Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate served to me by friend, Susan, and I am now addicted to it!! It is so chocolately and if it is too hot, add a splash of half and half!! We all know we need more calories in cold weather. That's my story and I am sticking to it!! If you are looking for some really good hot chocolate, this is it. I purchase mine at Walmart and it is not too expensive but I noted in some customer reviews that other stores have bumped up the price to around six dollars a box!! No matter how good it was, I would not pay that for it!! Our temps are supposed to be back up in the 50s and 60s by the weekend and I am really looking forward to that. This GRITS(Girls Raised in the South)Girl is ready for warmer weather!!
