Cinnamon is the classic hot chocolate flavor in Mexico. They call it ‘Abuelita’, which means little grandma’s. It has a deep taste of cacao, with a hint of cinnamon – a spice commonly used in the Mexican kitchen.
The mint flavor has a very rich and refreshing taste to it. The smell alone fills your nose with a sweet minty-fresh aroma that might remind you chocolates like After Eight or Opera Mint. Perfect as a refreshing hot drink when you need a pick-me-up.
In our hot chocolate with nuts you’ll find slivers of almonds and macadamia nuts. They have been cut and crunched into the cacao. This gives a nutty taste and crunchy feeling – only the real deal!
The chili flavor is hot, spicy and indulging. This comes from the dark chocolate we use, as well as the 7 different types of Mexican chilis present in this flavor-bomb. Chili is a staple spice in the Mexican kitchen, and it gives an exciting touch to our hot chocolate.
Cardamom is bold and spicy. It has a unique and pleasant aroma which gives a refreshing twist. Though the taste is hard to formulate, it complements the cacao spot on.
If you want the pure taste of cacao, then Criollo is just choice. We use some of the finest cacao in the world, and we’re sure you won’t be disappointed. Grab one of these for the pure taste of luxury Mexican cacao.
Cacao contains niacin, proteins, minerals (potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus) and vitamins (A, B1, B2 and B6). The active stimulant in cacao, which reminds a bit like caffeine, is Theobromine. A general myth and perception is that cacao contains caffeine. It might be that some products have added caffeine, but naturally caffeine does not occur in cacao.
