We profiled over 85 different cocoa beverages from around the world – both milk and water formulas. Each drink was tested for aroma, color, taste, mouth feel, and aftertaste. One product had a great cream profile, another an excellent aroma and another a fine taste, but no cocoa mix had all the qualities we were looking for in a product.
Our recipe contains a blend of gourmet and carefully selected cocoas to create its amazing flavor. It consists of only 1% natural and artificial flavoring, which we use to round out the blend and maintain a consistent flavor profile. We like to think of it as a pinch of salt and pepper in our favorite recipe: it accentuates the taste, but it does not create it.
