My name is Stephanie
Zonis, and welcome to the June, 2005 edition of “For
Chocolate Lovers Only”! Each month, you’ll
find a recipe or two, tips, and recommendations on great chocolate
specialties. This month, we celebrate Father’s Day; let your
Dad know how much you appreciate all of his efforts on your behalf.
Let’s get into the kitchen!
Chocolate Recommendation of the Month:
It’s summer, and time for a cold drink. As an admirer of both
chocolate and coffee, you’d like something refreshing that
combines the two tastes. You’re in luck! Royal Kona has come
up with a very nice Mocha Latte Coffee Drink, and
the real surprise is that it comes in a can. Now, don’t instantly
dismiss it because of that. I almost did, but I’m glad I sampled
it and took a look at the label. It’s not too sweet, it tastes
like good iced coffee, and there’s just a hint of chocolate
flavor that comes in at the end. But perhaps it’s most notable
for what it doesn’t have: no preservatives, no artificial
colors or flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup. Let’s
see some of the bigger names in coffee drinks match that! This Mocha
Latte Coffee Drink contains only water, sugar, Kona Blend
coffee, milk powder, salt, and natural flavors.
Although this is a product of the Hawai’i Coffee Company,
one needn’t venture to the Pacific to get some (sorry, you’ll
have to find another excuse for that trip to Oahu!). Four-packs
are available in most Target stores, as well as select Walgreen’s,
CVS Drugstores, and Whole Foods Markets. In California only, you
can find four-packs at Albertson’s Markets and individual
cans in Gelson’s Markets. If you have more questions about
Royal Kona’s Mocha Latte Coffee Drink, or
need to order it by the case for some reason, surf on over to www.hicoffeeco.com.
Click on Royal Kona, then, on the left side of the screen, on “Coffee
By Type”. Click on “Canned Coffee Drink”, and
there you are. And if you like a little variety in your cold coffee
drinks, you can also find this beverage in Kona Blend, Cappuccino,
and Vanilla Macadamia varieties. Check ‘em out!
