A change of seasons and seasonings

It’s that beautiful time of the year when leaves are turning, the air is starting to chill, and holiday flavors are beginning to hit freezers here in Cincinnati. While we try not to play favorites with our flavors, the seasonal batches tend to disappear a little faster, and not just because they’re made in limited quantities. So what’s the new flavor that’s out right now? Chocolate lovers, raise your spoons…it’s Mexican hot cocoa!

If you’ve never tried a cup of Mexican hot chocolate, it’s not exactly a literal translation to what we are used to when we open up a packet of Swiss Miss. The recipes vary, but typically they include some really delicious spices. We started with our basic chocolate ice cream, added some cinnamon and chili powder, and ended up with a sweet, spicy, perfect fall chocolate flavor. You can find it right now at Picnic and Pantry in Northside.
