This new combination of chile, cumin, cinnamon and chocolate flavors, balances the Hocus Pocus perfectly for a more sophisticated holiday drinking experience.

France has long had a reputation for excellent chocolate. But, most of the chocolate sold in France is actually produced elsewhere, such as Belgium or Switzerland, then transformed by fondeurs — melters of chocolate — into truffles, ganaches, pralines and so on. Enter La Manufacture, the first bean-to-bar chocolate shop in Paris.

Would You Pay $260 For A Fancy-Ass Chocolate Bar From Ecuador?

And it comes with tweezers and a 116-page manual...

Suddenly, shelling out $10 for a fancy-pants Mast Brothers chocolate bar seems rather pedestrian.

Cocoa Tea: The Best Hot Beverage You're Not Drinking, But Should Be

And we are NOT talking about hot cocoa
Aug 18, 2014 8:00 am

First things first: Cocoa Tea is not the official married name of Ice-T's wife Coco.

You can think of cocoa tea just like your morning cup of coffee, except instead of roasted coffee beans, it's brewed with roasted cocoa nibs. Mind blown yet?
