Taste of Chantico


Starbucks has new drink: Chantico.

They’re advertising it as a drinkable chocolate. So course I had to try it. First of all, it’s a teeny, tiny cup. Despite it size (think two expresso cups), the entire caloric count is almost 400 calories! The calories apparently come from the heavy cream and cocoa butter are whipped together to make this decadent drink. Upon first sip, it was thick and I had to chase it down with water. I promised myself not to finish it all in one sitting and actually divided it between two days. Admittedly, it tasted much better at room temperature than hot and definitely better than refrigerated. Would, I buy again? No, only if I absolutely needed a chocolate fix and even then, I would go for a chocolate truffle rather than Chantico.
